    Internship

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsIt was a great opportunity as a student to live and work at the corporate headquarters and the employees were all extremely friendly and welcoming.

    ConsThe company has recently seen some serious consequences in the economic downturn.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaintain the internship opportunties, and possibly expand upon the program

    During my tenure at the bank, it was nationalized. They favored deals with "good Irish blokes."

    Senior Analyst (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsWe got to drink a lot. It was a fun work hard, play hard environment. Everyone was young and fun. The work life balance was good as well, although this may have been because it was during the recession of 2008.

    ConsThe bank made really poor lending decisions, which got them in the situation that they did. They invested in deals long after other banks had pulled out of certain property types (due to the risk), but Anglo promised, "he's a good Irish bloke" and made poor lending decisions. Since it is an Irish-run bank, even in the US, they strongly favor ANYONE who is Irish and discriminate (in subtle) ways against Americans and definitely against women. Most everyone who is hired is white and has some genetic connection to Ireland.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
