I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Friendly workmates and good customer relations. Reasonable salary and time off. All in all quite a decent company to work for.

Cons

The last few years have been in a very difficult economic climate. A lot of customers are very disgruntled with the reduction in personal service and in some cases are taking it out on frontline staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of the management seem to be too far removed from the customer base and only think in terms of targets.

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Quality people, good business structure and exceptional exposure and experience. Good work life balance

    Cons

    There is a high resistant to change, new ideas and innovative people. There is little opportunity to develop your career. Frustrating systems. Too much red tape.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Staff enjoy great supports due to the company's legacy and union involvement. Training and development are supported and encouraged.

    Cons

    The culture is resistant to change, resistant to challenge and resistant to new ideas. Once decisions are made they are stuck too rigidly rather then being continually assessed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be mindful of the consequences of actions.
    The Bank is hundreds of years old, long term planning is required
    Resist the urge to focus solely on quick wins
