I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    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.

    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.
