      Toxic workplace culture

      Pros

      Not sure that there were many redeeming features here. They had crunchie chocolate bars in the kitchen once - if you could call that a benefit. You could also generally find a parking space too.

      Cons

      Management - or more to the point, the lack of professionalism was glaring when you have spent 15 years with proper blue-chip companies. One director was particularly abrasive and had no issue with shouting at you or ridiculing you in the conference room for all the open floor office to hear through the crappy unsound proof partition. Anyways, I decided pretty quickly that I deserved better and from those i got to know, many of them also exited so I guess the staff turnover rate is high. Life is not worth this...

      Pros

      Some nice people Free lunch when working in office Pension and health care improved to attract staff and prevent people from leaving.

      Cons

      A lot of change going on right now as new USA owners and buying lots of new companies. Everything is very much up in the air in regards to who looks after what going forward. I’m not sure if senior management know what the plan is to merge all the company together, it is not trickling down to staff at lower level at least. As a result, long term employees are leaving. Staff had to take a pay cut during lockdowns which was meant to be returned when outlook improved but never got itt back. Wages are low as Galway based. Hiring lots of staff now but made a lot of employees redundant during Covid and redundant employees jobs moved to Poland to save costs. Learning opportunities are not made available to lower level staff - only their for management.
