Helsinn Birex has been very good to me. I worked their for many happy years

Anonymous in Mulhuddart, Ireland
current employee in Nov. 2015
16/11/2015

The Best Bits

The company is well structured and is very stable. It has an excellent reputation and has done very well at regulatory audits to include the HPRA nad FDA over the past 10 years. It has a firm focus on the patient and is very results driven. It strives for continuous improvement and growth, and as such offers plenty of opportunities to develop and advance. It has excellent facilities and the employees are friendly.

Things to improve

It is a smaller company with only 180 employees. The benefits of this is increased autonomy and opportunities to develop (IE you are not pigeon holed) but transversely the work load can be demanding at times.
