I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Standard working hours,
Subsidised canteen,
Great co-workers,
The company does care about you,
Excellent money for my department (but we were a special case)

Cons

With such media focus on all banks cost cuts are inevitable. This is the only reason you will run into difficulty with management.
Some managers are promoted based on length of service who clearly shouldn't be in the role. This is by no means always the case. There is some serious talent within the company.
There were very few career growth opportunities. My core reason for leaving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to engage in staff more personally for example, wen at team update meetings don't just read an update sheet to me. I can do that. Otherwise i'd consider all my management team highly professional and caring.
