"The culture is pretty relaxed and there are no barriers between different levels of management. Even directors take the time to work with graduates."
Graduate, Hradec Kralove
"The team culture is very good. I have worked with the company for two years and we have been on several team bonding trips. The most recent trip was to Carlington Adventure Centre where we completed team-building activities. The sports and social club runs several events throughout the year that bring employees and family members together for day trips in the local area."
Entry level, Kingscourt, Co. Caven
"There is a structure and hierarchy in place but those in high positions treat their subordinates as equals (in my opinion). There is great cooperation across the division. Socialising with colleagues in my region is very limited as we are split across the UK and Ireland. When we do meet, it is for a short meeting with little opportunity to properly get to know each other. I would say that we are social within my department."
Marketing, Graduate, Kingscourt, Co. Cavan
"The culture within Kingspan is fantastic both within the office and outside of it. There is a very flat and open structure and higher levels of management are always willing to listen to your ideas. They are very engaging and are happy for you to challenge them. Socialising is important for Kingspan and they organise a number of events for all staff to attend during the year."
Graduate, Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic
"The culture within the organisation is great, there is no hierarchy and everyone seems to be very helpful. There is a lot of teamwork within my department and we all get on well together."
Entry level, Kingscourt, Co Cavan
"The hierarchy within the office is flat. Regardless of who you are talking to, you are encouraged to express your ideas and opinions and they are listened to and considered. The team I am working with is great and we all get on very well. There is a balance of banter and work within the office, which is just right. The only downfall is that there is not much socialising outside of working hours. This is because the factory is in a remote location and the majority of people drive to work, making organising after-work drinks difficult. There is the occasional mystery tour, Christmas party or family social event but not much casual socialising."
