I have been working at eircom full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Decent work/life balance, some reasonable management structure, some good people. Most employees work towards producing good products and delivering good customer service.

Cons

Projects get infinitely stalled waiting on funding; lack of long-term vision in all areas -- focus shifts too much with changes of management;

Advice to Management

Our best choice for competing with bigger players is to deliver excellent customer service -- more focus and support needed for this.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at eircom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good quality of people, good management at mid and mid-senior level.

    Cons

    Product was burdened with a lot of cost. The VCs kept selling it on and diluting the value of the network and heaping it with debt.

    Advice to Management

    Too late, the VCs have loaded it already. Perhaps focus on quad play.


  2. "Good company to work for. Family friendly, good work-life balance"

    I have been working at eircom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family friendly, flexible, good work-life balance, interesting technology, great people, diverse career opportunities, HSQ is an awesome building to work in.

    Cons

    Still has some legacy from Civil Service days, can be bureaucratic and slow moving at times, although all large companies have an element of that.

    Advice to Management

    Empower and trust people as much as possible, manage by achievement of objectives rather than by presence, reward and celebrate success.
