Overall reviews at Abbott Laboratories
Quality Assurance Analyst | Sligo | 23 Oct 2013
I was responsible for all the product testing and keeping the necessary records. I learned a lot about Quality Management,also Health and Safety was of major importance as part of a Healthcare Company. I got on very well with my co-workers I was always a very good team player. There was a lot of pressure due to to the fact that there was a high volume of product been manufactured.
ProsManagement treated the employees very well
ConsI worked evening shift and it was late at night when I got home

Fun place to work in if you have masochistic tendencies.
If you are unemployed and are desperate for a job I would seriously ask you to think about working for this company. It is a large building , built with structural steel and glass, and it is within this building that the work is done. I learned that manners and common courtesy are foreign concepts amoung Irish people, and I learned that amoung factory workers there are a remarkable number of gosfords.The hardest part of the job was listening to the inane conversations about football or the filthy talk about s.. during eight hour shifts. Management were a total bunch of ticks, the most enjoyable memory of the job for me was the night a water pipe burst in the ceiling above the clean room and we all had to be sent home.
ProsGood Car Park.
ConsMonday thru Friday.

Quality Assurance Engineer | Longford | 11 Jun 2018
Colleagues always willing to help if necessary.
A typical day at work began between 8am and 10am (flexi-time). Coffee and water were available to drink as required. There is a subsidised canteen. I enhanced my knowledge in ISO13485, Validation and QA. Management treated me as a person. Excellent work culture. The most enjoyable part of the job was problem solving. I liked working for Abbott due to it's openness and good work / life balance. If any difficulties arose there was always someone there to help.
