    Current Contractor - Designer SOA in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good scope of work.
    Better learning environment.

    Cons

    Work culture is very wired.
    So many managers with less or no output giving huge overhead.
    Many vendors and chaos work environment.
    Needs effective leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep eye on quality output of your employees rather than going through words and statements.
    If there is cost overhead then you being leader is responsible rather than your employees since you could not able to identify the gap at right moment as well the right resource and show him/her the right track.

    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 Management

    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.
