    Being resilient means taking the worst form of institutional bullying and living to tell the tale about Bank of Ireland

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    None really. Senior Executives at the Bank involved in bullying their workers out of their jobs, so that the senior mangement can earn their bonuses

    Cons

    A culture of fear as a result of the 'voluntary' parting initiative which resulted in a number of their employees being told that 'their roles were eliminated' while contractors were brought in to back fill the roles. 1.5 years later those same roles are being advertised internally and externally. Bank of Ireland has exhibited sharp practice and treated their employees with the same contempt they treat their customers with. the only thing is that the regulator and consumer associations protect the customer. who is protecting the employees?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you know who you are. if you haven't been shamed out of it already...go no.

    Pros

    Some good people, well known brand in Ireland, good size so there's scope to get experience in many areas

    Cons

    Bad management, little support of professional development, managers now knowing what they want, how they want to get there, but are sure it's their teams fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train and support you staff, pay attention to your own goals, mission statement and values

    Unless the price is right, look for another bank.

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland

    Pros

    Good workers, great team environments, and hungry individuals. Good Benefits and 401k package. A lot of face time with upper management, able to voice opinion (however usually falls through the cracks).

    Cons

    The division I work for used to be very nimble, think on the fly, and have an entrepreneurial mindset. However over the last 2 years the company has literally been on hold with any strategic thinking. This organization may be a positive one in the future when it pulls its head out of the sand, however currently I would not recommend this organization to anyone unless the price was extremely right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think proactively not re actively. Think about innovation to stay ahead of the curve rather than following the pack. Global expansion is key to diversification.....BOI does not think this way. Make calculated risks for future rewards (currently extreme minimum risks are taken which equals minimal gains to lower level employees).
