    Pros

    Reasonably good working conditions, pay & good pension

    Cons

    The management had a culture of profit at all costs if you can get away with it. We were encouraged to set up false accounts with foreign addresses to get business. If you were caught doing it by someone outside the bank though you were on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest

    Pros

    Great work environemnt and very committed upper management. Not too challenging and work hours are not long. Rarely do we work on the weekends.

    Cons

    Almost no promotions. Difficult to change positions within the firm especially now. Currently no promotions of salary increases. Hard to see a future.

    Advice to Management

    I think that if an employee deserves a poromotion he/she should be enttiled to it. People aren't going to stay at AIB once the job market opens up.

    Pros

    A positive attitude will help you get far because relationships are important at this place. People are great as well as the benefits, great work/life balance.

    Cons

    No bonuses, raises or promotions for too many years. You can't expect a person to survive on the same salary without feeling the fiber that holds the organization together start to unravel.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be more compensation/title change to motivate your employees.
