    Pros

    Some benefits gym, health insurance

    Cons

    Depressing place to work, staff not treated well, turnover massive, management not open with staff. Lot of young bright people arent used to there best capacity leaves them frustrated. Rewarded in pay and promotions based on longevity vs performance. Bad atmosphere

    Allow for quicker promotions, give more responsibility to younger staff. Have a defined career path not just AVP in a few years maybe

    I worked at Bank of America as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very progressive engineering culture in the bank with a big emphasis on up-skilling and using new technologies.
    Fantastic opportunities to take on responsibilities, even as an intern.
    Exposure to areas outside of software development, e.g., the financial aspects of the bank
    Very much team orientated, with no official manager or leader for each SCRUM team (could get quite chaotic)
    Open plan office made it very easy to collaborate
    Fantastic mentorship

    Cons

    The Dublin office lacks many of the corporate perks one would associate with being a software developer for a major bank.
    Lack of communication between upper management and SCRUM teams led to frustration when certain projects were cancelled.
    Majority of employees were encouraging and friendly but some dragged down the mood and culture of the office.
    Not a very competitive salary

    Advice to Management

    Come down and talk to your SCRUM teams more often, communicating your needs and WHY you need things to be done a certain way.
    Consider offering equal benefits to the teams based in London and New York.

    Pros

    It's one of those places where the people make the job. The energy in the place is quite positive. The benefits package and sports clubs are decent.

    Cons

    It's in the suburbs so public transport options aren't brilliant. Mostly back and middle office jobs that are quite monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    Push to get more front office type roles moved to Dublin.

    I worked at Bank of America (More than a year)

    Pros

    Professional corporate environment with people who have been in the game a long time. The benefits are good - annual leave days, onsite gym (monthly membership fee), lifestyle account, summer BBQ and winter party.

    Cons

    Limited room for career development. You will need at least three years in your role before any sort of promotion or increased responsibility is discussed. Unpaid overtime is expected and frequent. Salary is off the table for discussion.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees based on merit, not time spent at the company. Reward good performance on an individual level.
