    Pros

    Friendly staff were very easy to work with. Canteen with restaurant quality food for reasonable price

    Cons

    Long term pay and promotion freeze since bank got into difficulty in 2008, lots of senior people sitting on jobs with very limited technical knowledge

    Advice to Management

    Address poor performance of senior well-paid staff

    Pros

    In the good old days, it was great fun to work here if you know what I mean. For obvious reasons, that has changed and AIB is a far more sober place. That said, they are reluctant to let people go in hard times and it's a friendly place with plenty of people you'd choose to be mates with outside the office.

    Cons

    Definitely helps to be Irish to progress
    Ridiculously onerous credit decision processes
    Slow career progression and little responsibility for juniors
    A culture that has had to emphasis risk and compliance over business performance in the past few years, this makes it dull if you want to work on transactions

    Advice to Management

    More diversity in senior mgmt would be appreciated

    Pros

    Some good people, but they were the minority

    Cons

    All 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 Management

    Instigate 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.

    Pros

    Worked with some really good people who in spite of the morale at the time still performed to a really high level

    Cons

    No real careeer progression and management lost a lot of respect for the way they handled the bonus issue. Shame at whats happened to the bank since.

    Advice to Management

    Too late.
