I have been working at Enterprise Ireland full-time (More than a year)
Overall an incredibly diverse range of experience and opportunities. A good chance to discover about what areas one is interested in.
Networking opportunities and the chance to represent Ireland at a critical juncture in its economic development.
The pay for overseas graduates is very competitive compared with other programmes.
Regional Director is driven, and open to feedback, but very difficult for them to affect change when they have no middle management to implement these changes.
The morale is absolutely dreadful at present. Lack of middle management has contributed to this, and a handful of open positions, leading to increased workload and poor motivation.
Brexit dominates every conversation, regardless of real impact on business as of yet.
Apathy among staff is rife, and it can be difficult as a younger person in the workplace to stay removed from the cynicism inherent to the office.
The senior management have little to no interest in engaging directly with the mere mortals below director level, and this can make it difficult to feel like your work is really valued.
Clients have varied views of the organisation, often treating it as a free lead generation service.
Graduates have very little chance of remaining with the organisation, making it hard to believe that management are interested in your development.
Advice to Management
Fill empty posts, assign graduates to MAs, be more upbeat about Brexit.
