    Pros

    A positive attitude will help you get far because relationships are important at this place. People are great as well as the benefits, great work/life balance.

    Cons

    No bonuses, raises or promotions for too many years. You can't expect a person to survive on the same salary without feeling the fiber that holds the organization together start to unravel.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be more compensation/title change to motivate your employees.

    Pros

    Great work environemnt and very committed upper management. Not too challenging and work hours are not long. Rarely do we work on the weekends.

    Cons

    Almost no promotions. Difficult to change positions within the firm especially now. Currently no promotions of salary increases. Hard to see a future.

    Advice to Management

    I think that if an employee deserves a poromotion he/she should be enttiled to it. People aren't going to stay at AIB once the job market opens up.

    Good team who were friendly and good to work with. Nice work environment.

    Not the fastest pace of a place to work at all and not really that mentally taxing. Things take a long time to get done and HR is a nightmare.

    Pros

    Historically the bank made a profit without any real effort as it was one of two main banks in the country

    Cons

    It had not central purpose/target. It carried on in business as though it was still a series of smaller banks

    Advice to Management

    More is achieved working as cohesive units rather than as discrete empires

    Pros

    Not too many after the bailout but things are beginning to turn

    Cons

    Very few promotions and no pay rises in over 7 years. Morale is still low and AIB had a long way to go to be an employer of choice
