    I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No opportunity for progression from manager or senior manager level up. Promotions based on who you know / being a ‘yes’ person. Discourage challenges to status quo, alternative approaches and new modern thinking. Promotions through ability to ‘manage the message’ not actually through leadership, delivery or achieving results. Very weak level 5 community plus ExCo...shakeup needed!!!

    Cons

    Individual teams have great team spirit

    Advice to Management

    New ExCo / level 5 review. Old school, backward thinking to be addressed. No accountability to deliver anything or treat colleagues in a fair and respectful manner. Actually walk the talk on values and inclusion and diversity. Disappointingly few women unless they fit the old school mould get promoted / hold material senior roles. Needs to join the times and embrace agile (not just a nod to it), inclusion & diversity,...

      Pros

      Flexible working, good location, OK Comp

      Cons

      Promotions are awarded based on friendship with management, not on merit. A lot of good people left recently and are still leaving - this has been raised at a leadership call this year, and nothing is being done. The company pays lip service to "agile working" but it's nonsensical and processes are still very much last century. You get ahead by writing papers and presentations and not by delivering projects and/or...

      Advice to Management

      You need to start making tough decisions and get rid of employees with no results/no performance, on every level of seniority up to and including ExCo. Review hiring/promotion decisions, potentially get it reviewed by an impartial third party, to weed out those that had been awarded unmerited, right down to Senior Manager level. Keep the good people. Promote the good people.

      Cons

      Poor direction from management. No real support or training. Its not a company that values there staff. The teams are very clicky. Progression is based on a “if you’re face fits bases”

      Advice to Management

      Support your teams, go for people management training.
