An interns experience of working in complete lab solutions.

Employee in Science in Galway, Ireland
former employee in 2014

The people in it are very friendly. There is a good working environment. It is quite a relaxed place to work.

Things to improve

Okay well it is kind of in the middle of nowhere, it is an hours drive out of Galway city and when I worked there, there was only one bus between Rosmuc & galway.

About The Job

As I was an intern I basically just helped out whoever needed help.


Please describe the problem with this review.

Good training, excellence experience, nice colleagues, unmotivated staff.

Employee in Chemistry in Galway, Ireland
current employee in Sep 2018

The Best Bits

Decent employment opportunity for someone who is just finished a degree in a related laboratory based subject and who had no work experience as part of their course. Training is provided on majority of lab skills.

Things to improve

The opportunity for progression and salary increase and reward for good work. As it is contract based there tends to be a real divide between benefits available to staff in the client company and the contractor. If there was possibly a system whereby at the end of a six month contract a review is send by the supervisor to CLS and a reward is given accordingly I feel contract staff morale and motivation could be improved.

About The Job

Gets trained in medpharma to be sent anywhere in the country to fulfill an analyst role in client contract company.
