Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Motivated workforce, collaborative environment, flat hierarchies

Cons

slow decision making; high on politics; senior management lacks courage to make decisions, likes to run the shop 'cloak and dagger style'; aged, very complex and risky technology mix

Advice to Management

Simplify your products, take out complexity, streamline your operation, realise you are a small bank, and root out the arrogance sometimes displayed towards shareholders and customers.

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good scope of work.
    Better learning environment.

    Cons

    Work culture is very wired.
    So many managers with less or no output giving huge overhead.
    Many vendors and chaos work environment.
    Needs effective leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep eye on quality output of your employees rather than going through words and statements.
    If there is cost overhead then you being leader is responsible rather than your employees since you could not able to identify the gap at right moment as well the right resource and show him/her the right track.
