    Cons

    IT setup can be a bit disjointed, not a major player in the international finance scene.

    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.

    Pros

    First if all, the environment is vey conducive and pleasant to work in. The managers, although very strict but very caring. Management try as much as possible to be very flexible with work times in order to put a balance between work and home front. The staff in Bank of Ireland are very friendly and accommodating.

    Cons

    There isn't any downside really, all you need to know as a staff is just try as much as possible to be hardworking , punctual, give it your all and you will be happy. And maybe in recent times, there has not been career progression.

    Advice to Management

    What I would say really is keep up the good work.
