    I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time

    Pros

    Wages are average pay. Can't even say nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Bulling and harrassment by managers and the bank is aware of issue but do nothing about it. High turnover of staff. Staff off with stress normal. Managers are not qualified, lack proper training & promoted by buddy status. They do not care about work life balance. 6 month and end of year reviews used as a punishment tool and give those who they like pay rises. Staff are too scared to report bulling and in some cases will participate/encouraged to participate in the bulling even though they know it is wrong. They claim to have a bulling policy but they do not enforce. It's for show to appease regulators. Coming in early and going beyond what is required not recognised. You see jobs to apply for but reality is they prefer to recruit externally so not really a chance to move to other departments.

      - not a good place to work. If you don't want to ruin your CV , don't work here as you will be leaving less of a person than you started

    Advice to Management

    Need to get rid of all managers and change the culture and bad atmostophere in that specific department as the only way to really stop turnover of staff and reduce the cost of recruitment and training costs for new members of staff
