    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.

  6. Management in Ireland not great in communicating the truth to their employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly people - really do try to make sure that you understand what you are doing and help you along the way.

    Cons

    Management in Ireland not great in communicating the truth to their employees. Mislead in where the company is going and their compensation to their employees.

    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
