I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time (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 Management

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

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very few. A few years ago when the banking system was functioning properly my division (Private Banking) was actually a good place to work. There were social events, bonuses and scope to progress.

    Cons

    No attempt to boost staff morale, depleting numbers and a general lack of direction for the business. There is a lot of pressure being applied to sales staff which is inceasing every year. It's not the worst place to work in but be sure to negotiate hard for a salary and level you are happy with because you'll be stuck there until you leave.

    Advice to Management

    In the absence of any big changes happening in the way the bank is run, they should try to do what they can to boost morale, which was being done even up to quite recently. Banks can't be seen to be looking after their staff! That's just the small stuff at the surface. Generally speaking Irish banks are just not a good environment to work in.

    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 Management

    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
