No opinion of CEO

Pros

Recognition given to employees "Going the extra mile".
Good commission and remuneration for work carried out.
Up to date training on devices and packages available.

Cons

Recognition to employees is only to Select employees.
If you EVER made a mistake in O2 it will be held against you and brought up too regularly and career path will be closed.
There is a strong Bias within the company from senior management levels. The chosen few will gain rewards and recognition the unlucky/unfortunate majority will be ignored or "Managed out"

Peoples abilities and dedication will not be recognized by Senior Management.

Advice to Management

Realize that people can make mistakes and FORGIVE.
Recognize change in employees and acknowledge when someone has Overachieved.
Treat all employees equally and reward achievements as well as punishing errors.

  1. "O2 PMO not a good place to work"

    Pros

    As a company, O2 has good benefits and is responsive to the needs of its employees.

    Cons

    I worked in the O2 PMO (project management office) and it was a very notable exception to the generally very good O2 work environment. Management attitudes were poor and micromanagemet and generally very poor support of staff were pervasive.

    An example of the poor environment occurred when there were several permanent PM openings - not a single one of the 20+ contract PMs even applied.

    Advice to Management

    It has been a long time since O2 was part of the public service (it was formerly part of the state owned telecom provider) and the overbearing and top down Irish public service management approach is very counter productive.
