      • "Good experience with BOI"

        StarStarStarStarStar

          Recommends

          I worked at Bank of Ireland for more than a year

          Pros

          I was an intern under the Retail Banking division. As an intern, I was given relevant work and the freedom to work on my tasks. I also had friendly and helpful colleagues who taught me the basics of the job. I like that the relationships/communication within the division were not very hierarchical. Furthermore, I was not expected to work overtime and could leave if I had completed my tasks.

          Cons

          Due to the financial crisis, the workforce had to be reduced in the following years and a number of positions were removed entirely. Thus, sometimes I could not contact the person with the most knowledge about a certain task.
