Your average bank

IT Executive (Former Employee)
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMotivated workforce, collaborative environment, flat hierarchies

Consslow 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 Senior ManagementSimplify 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not happy with experience at Bank of Ireland.

Operations Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bank of Ireland

ProsVery Casual Environment. Easy to communicate on a personal level with management.

ConsLack of Strategic vision of management that limits future growth of busines. Due to this lack of vision, I feel that the company long term success has been greatly compromised and therefore the future growth of the employees (raises, training, learning, etc.) has been reduced much lower than it should have been.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork towards recognizing opportunities and taking calculated risks for greater rewards

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

See the longterm, rather than shortterm

Manager (Former Employee)
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I worked at Bank of Ireland

ProsA reasonable employer, with reasonable compensation.

ConsWhen immediate superior is only interested in their own progress, and has little interest in improving the lot of the people who work for them.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink of the long term, and not the short term apparent benefits.
