      Pros

      You will have many stories to tell at your new job. You will probably never work somewhere worse.

      Cons

      Tense hostile environment - Most of the staff are friendly but office politics reigns supreme and makes the office feel like high school. People will be openly rude or aggressive to other team members. Any anonymous forums (All Hands, Offsites) will be a space for teams to belittle other teams. Parties and events happen often to force a "fun" culture. High turnover - People leave frequently for higher paying jobs or better companies. Random firings are common. You will come in to work to find someone has been disappeared with no explanation. Asking questions isn't encouraged. There's a constant feeling that you might be next. Poor pay - Good work is not valued. This is spoken about openly and regularly brought up at All Hands. Mark Roden will shrug this off by saying if the pay was bad people wouldn't work there. Another reason good team members are regularly walking out the door. Office politics - Mentioned already but this time in relation to senior management. If you're liked by the right people you will do okay. If you are not liked by the right people you'll be walked on. Roden walks around like Mr. Burns. Customer Care Team - As mentioned by other reviewers, CC are treated like second class citizens. They have to sit and listen to any pizza nights or parties while they're trying to work. Creates a sense of division in the office between those who make the product and those who answer emails. Terrible leadership - C level and senior management is a revolving door. High level goals change suddenly. Context switching and swivel chairing is common, leaving team members no choice but to work far beyond office hours to deliver on goals. New deliverables feel like they're pulled from a hat with no time to prepare or design. PS - As others have noted, many of the positive reviews of this company appear fake. Anyone who has worked for Ding would not be shocked.

      Pros

      Company is looking after the staff

      Cons

      Could be less meetings but I guess it depends on the department you are working in.

      Like The Sopranos except the boss is not as likeable

      Pros

      There are some really great people here. Most of them move on quickly however.

      Cons

      If you are liked by senior management you will likely enjoy working here. If you are not then you will quickly look for the exit door or could just end up disappearing one day. Senior Leadership preach one thing then their actions let them down. Customer obsession was a nice buzz word, but all the boss really cares about is how thick the envelopes are. Favouritism is rife, with some extremely questionable and worrying behaviour that even Tony Soprano wouldn’t tolerate. Respect and effort is only given if you are a friend of the boss or, like Tony, he has an “interest” in you. Dublin is full of too many good companies to waste your time here and risk your mental well-being.

      Not for everyone

      Pros

      Good people who work hard for the most part, but these people don’t last long here. Good work life balance most of the time.

      Cons

      High turnover of staff (people get fed up and leave and redundancies are a regular occurrence). Leaders don’t give off confidence that they know what direction to take the business. Benefits are poor compared to other companies. Some of the overly positive reviews here use language that sounds like it’s coming directly from the leadership team - so take these with a pinch of salt
