    I worked at AIB Capital Markets full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Things have certainly changed in the last 18 months - and for the better. AIB has become a place of work that has more of a community feel, where employees feel listened too and valued. technology has improved as has the ability for the potential of agile working. Good train and bus route.

    Cons

    Of course the salary issue is ongoing - but, you know what you are getting. Plus - there is a new reward structure so things are looking up.

    I worked at AIB Capital Markets full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    First class marketing team fully teched up to succeed, great place to work for ambitious marketing execs. Lots of ups killing available with MII membership and lots of free courses available to keep all marketing skills up to date. ONLY brand in Ireland in full control of Brand Strategy with tightly controlled budgets to match.

    Cons

    Potential to burn out within 2/3 years. Some frustrating 'over- engineering' of ideas occurs. Expect usual red tape as function grows in number and complexity.

    Advice to Management

    Pare back on the "Heads of" roles and keep it simple. Stand behind the statement of empowering your teams. Ensure teams & individuals get recognition for their work. Achievements go unnoticed so often it gets exhausting as the team move from one challenge to the next, which can make all the challenges feel relentless!

    Pros

    Had worked in a team with a good work ethic and it was a friendly environment. Depends on the area you are in however. Good social life if in the right team. Good location in Ballsbridge.

    Cons

    Good working environment ruined by outsourcing and cost cutting. Long hours in some areas. Salary increases are a rarity. Alot of staff underpaid and overworked and lack of recognition for efforts and progress made.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to cut cost and wasting money on outsourcing, it ruins staff morale and makes it hard to be motivated. Great talent is lost due to this, directly and indirectly. improve Recognition processes and rewards
