    Career building.

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    ProsIn the early years of my time with bank of ireland there were plenty of opportunity for personal growth and development, but as the economic climate changed this changed also.

    ConsPersonally for me the location of the IT Department where I worked did not suit as it was not on a main public transport link.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Your average bank

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

    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

    ProsGreat benefits, friendly people - really do try to make sure that you understand what you are doing and help you along the way.

    ConsManagement in Ireland not great in communicating the truth to their employees. Mislead in where the company is going and their compensation to their employees.

    Not happy with experience at Bank of Ireland.

    Operations Manager (Current Employee)

    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)

    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.
