GM's come and go every few years.
Great GM who left in Oct 2018. New GM - no comment!!
The staff make the environment great.
Benefits and perks are not great.
HR very vague in the information they give you to make you come to work there, but once you sign on, you quickly figure out that HR were not truthful about bonuses and vacation.
Many ongoing projects but insufficient resources to complete them well in a timely manner. There is not enough focus on employee career development, all development meetings are more progress updates for projects for the company.
Process Support Intern (Former Employee) - Sligo - 30 January 2020
Really good company to work for with a great workplace culture making it easy for new employees to integrate. The sites are well laid out, clean and very modern while being heavily geared towards employee health and safety.
I was a contract worker with Adecco with no benefits, and the full time staff would take advantage of you. They would take extra long breaks while you had to operate their machine and your machine at the same time even though it was against FDA regulations. When we got inspected by the FDA we were told to only work on one machine. The management is not honest. The full time staff were bitter and would pick fights with the Adecco employees. We had no rights. I was assaulted by two full time staff members but of course they would say it was a joke because they had all the rights to do what they wanted with you. When you make a complaint about their behaviour the management whitewashing the incident and then turns the table on you by gaslighting and making you out to be the villain. The whole interview was about whether you can get along with difficult employees so they are not shy about saying it at the get go. It's a warning.
From a Macro perspective Abbott is a Fortune 500 Company that has a stellar reputation as an excellent employer. From a Micro perspective the Diabetes Division in Canada had its challenges. Most years the division didn't hits it's sales goals and targets usually where adjusted down to try and retain talent (some years had an almost 50% turn over rate).
Company is very productive with lean team size and each individual is clear for their objective and goals. Also, the company has a very professional workplace where well organized and support respective teams.
I only worked there shortly as I had moved and needed to relocate for my then once small daughter. It was dry time of position with plenty of repetitive tasks. The environment was cold and a lack of team spirit and support.
I worked her for 17 years. I was laid off due to restructuring. In other words I was there too long and mad too much money. They get rid if their mos. experience operators just to save money. But the quality is effected in the cartridge making. Don’t waste your time or energy here. They will make I seem like a great place to work but will let you go with a blink of an eye. Part time people never get hired full time.
This location is the most toxic environment you could be in. The anxiety has cause numerous people to take stress leave. They claim to be about quality and saving lives, bottom line is always money. Night shift's are invisible to managent. They treat their new employees horribly, because they've let go most senior members; some with 10, 15, 20 yrs experience, and now hire contract employees and a fraction of the pay and ignore you. DO NOT WORK HERE IT! THEY SUCK OUT YOUR SOUL!
