    Salary increase for loyal employees poor, new starters given far more than people working over them. Also seems to have gender bias.

    Pros

    canteen , gym ,location

    Cons

    I was bullied from day one since I joined the team. I was shouted several times and that happened within the first week.I reported matter to HR but I was told that I had to go back to the team and behave professional so I was forced to resign although I did not do anything wrong. Stay away from that place if you can .

    I worked at Kerry Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent exposure and being involved in a variety of projects. Young team members are very energetic and open to change. A lot of the times team members did go above and beyond for the senior managers.

    Cons

    Low wages for what was done, worked very long hours and not compensated for them in either time back or a payment. Senior management will try to limit progression and only will give a raise when a resignation is handed in. Can be environment wise very difficult to work in. If you make your opinion heard and want to get a fair treatment it'll be virtually impossible. There are absolutely no perks offered unless if you are senior management.

    "Commercial. Pacey. Emotional."

    4.0
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Naas

    I have been working at Kerry Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to work if you give it your all and are committed. People engagement and team spirit is really high. The pace of innovation with regards products and brands is very exciting and it still makes you feel proud to be Irish and work for an Irish company - such a success story. In general, the people you work alongside makes it really special to work here on a daily basis. Work life balance can be tough in any FMCG but it is recognised here and there is flexibility with an awareness you need to look after yourself.

    Cons

    Career development is limited. Reward is not competitive.
