    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.

    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.

    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 Management

    Work towards recognizing opportunities and taking calculated risks for greater rewards

    Pros

    Good people work there. It's the kind of job you leave at the door when you walk out every evening - so it's good for people looking for something they don't have to think about.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement within the company, and not-so-great starting salary with slight increases over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the revolving door of employees by offering better prospects to those coming in - room for growth, and better wages and benefits. Also, I feel as though the canteen would be better if it was operated by an independent business, rather than a huge chain. It would probably DO better too, as people would feel better spending money with them.
