Pros

Great benefits, great pay, good work/life balance, great people

Cons

It's fast paced and intense at times but good outweighs the bad

Advice to Management

More incentive given to people with really intense projects would be helpful but overall it's a great place to work.

    Pros

    Great vacation time, European style. Salary increase is minimal, at least in my experience. Maybe some people are getting nice increases if they're a star. But from what I've heard, you have to leave and come back or have another offer in hand 'if' they're willing to counter to keep you, otherwise, don't hold your breath. If you have a mentor or a natural ability to learn the business, then you've got it made. Otherwise, the learning curve can be steep for mere mortals.

    Cons

    If you're not patient, forget it. You'll only be frustrated. But if you're willing to do what they tell you, then you can last a long time. In the event of a layoff, I was told that you get a little severance, which is more than most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Management will decide. Nothing else is new here.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, benefits, training programs and advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Corporate based company culture, too many IT systems that are constantly changing, lots of in-fighting and power struggles with management teams.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver on promises made to employees at town-hall meetings. Exclusive benefit programs in place for the Dublin office and showcased on company intranet - what about the other 10,000 employees?
