Red tape and more red tape

Senior UNIX Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I worked at AIB Capital Markets full-time for more than a year

ProsSome good people, but they were the minority

ConsAll of AIB seems staffed by technically weak IT people who spend most of their time in meetings. After working in AIB, I soon discovered that many other companies in Dublin have a "no bank" rule when recruiting - i.e. anybody who has worked in AIB or some of the other major financial institutions in Dublin/Ireland is considered undesirable - the reason for this is always that people in AIB and other places are technically weak and to a greater extent, they have no initiative, expect to work 7 hours a day, take a 90 minute or 2 hour lunch - total disconnection from the real world.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstigate a true performance-based system. Most "managers" I dealt with in AIB were incompetent and should never have been managers. It seems people get promoted based on the length of time they serve, not whether they are capable of delivering or not.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Employer

Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee)
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I have been working at AIB Capital Markets full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWorked as team leader carrying out audits. Had high quality staff working for me but top management lost the run of themselves.

ConsBank went bust in 2009 as a result of the property collapse. All high quality staff left over the next few years. Bank is now downsized and has less experienced staff. Will take along time to recover if ever.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppear to have been out of touch with what was happening in 2008/9 to the bank.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Some good people and good exposure to top transactions but needs major shake up.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at AIB Capital Markets

ProsGood people and exposure to deals

ConsAncient technology and red tape.

Advice to Senior ManagementAsk your staff what is wrong with the bank, listen to it and do something about it - no need to pay millions to consultants to hear what your staff have been saying for years.

Working environment

Credit (Former Employee)

I worked at AIB Capital Markets full-time

ProsHard working staff, very friendly.

ConsLow moral due to ongoing survival problems within the bank. Outside bad press in addition to customer dissatisfaction with the bank puts more preasure on front line staff. The recent withdrawal of all staff perks & no pay rises in 4 years does not help either.

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport & reward the front line staff more.
Employ staff on a permanent basics not on short term contract.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
