    I worked at Bank of Ireland

    Pros

    Did my internship there so teaching was very prevalent. All departments I worked taught me a lot. Moving around was encouraged.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons of working at this company. The weather in Ireland is very cold so that is why I decided to leave the country and therefore the company.

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland

    Pros

    Very Casual Environment. Easy to communicate on a personal level with management.

    Cons

    Lack of Strategic vision of management that limits future growth of busines. Due to this lack of vision, I feel that the company long term success has been greatly compromised and therefore the future growth of the employees (raises, training, learning, etc.) has been reduced much lower than it should have been.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards recognizing opportunities and taking calculated risks for greater rewards

    I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some decent people to work with (not work for).

    Cons

    Where do I start? crap wages, nepotism, overpaid (and far too many) managers, useless union, no perks, limited opportunities to move on or upwards etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the management at this stage should be shown the door and replaced by mid-level staff who are working their bollox off and spending a large chunk of their time studying and challenging themselves.
