    Pros

    Interesting work and gained huge experience in the area of my expertise. Met some lovely people who just wanted the job done the right way.

    Cons

    Management not interested in real change; No real strategy that I could see and all decisions were made on the basis of what management wanted, not what was right for the Company; in fact line management never communicated with the department and never met face to face.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your ivory towers and go and meet the staff. Encourage them to be open and honest about what needs to change. Otherwise the Bank will languish in mediocrity.

    Pros

    Some nice people, well known around Ireland and UK. Getting better at listening to staff.

    Cons

    Low pay, expected too much for what we are able to do. Massively under staffed.Not much scope for career progression or development unless you want to be a manager. Outdated systems which affects both staff and customers. Management pat each other on the back while the lower staff do all the hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise the hard workers more, they take the brunt of the complaints from customers and public.

    Pros

    Relatively stress free, very nice people, would be very happy to work here although internal promotion is quite slow.

    Cons

    IT system is absolutely farcical, takes two weeks to get access to the systems and servers. Can also be boring work

    Pros

    There are some decent people to work with (not work for).

    Cons

    Where do I start? crap wages, nepotism, overpaid (and far too many) managers, useless union, no perks, limited opportunities to move on or upwards etc.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the management at this stage should be shown the door and replaced by mid-level staff who are working their bollox off and spending a large chunk of their time studying and challenging themselves.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn. Good training available for permanent employees. Standard bank working hours, flexi time available. Made some very good friends in the time I spent there.

    Cons

    Recent changes in the IT structure has seen mass voluntary redundancy in the IT and Business Change departments.
    Morale has been very low in recent years as a result of this. Pay increases frozen from 2008 until after I left in 2012

    Advice to Management

    clear communication on company strategy require to give staff reassurances
