    Being resilient means taking the worst form of institutional bullying and living to tell the tale about Bank of Ireland

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    None really. Senior Executives at the Bank involved in bullying their workers out of their jobs, so that the senior mangement can earn their bonuses

    Cons

    A culture of fear as a result of the 'voluntary' parting initiative which resulted in a number of their employees being told that 'their roles were eliminated' while contractors were brought in to back fill the roles. 1.5 years later those same roles are being advertised internally and externally. Bank of Ireland has exhibited sharp practice and treated their employees with the same contempt they treat their customers with. the only thing is that the regulator and consumer associations protect the customer. who is protecting the employees?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you know who you are. if you haven't been shamed out of it already...go no.

    I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Improving out dated and redundant processes, embracing technology, 9 - 5 hours, positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Progression is about time served not about talent. career model seriously needs to be looked at. alot of old school dead weight in senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote talent not time served

    I have been working at Bank of Ireland full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some nice people in the office

    Cons

    They tried to introduce themselves like a really friendly company that will help you in case of confusions and will take you to the stars. It's not true- after your training no one really cares about you. There is no career opportunities and salary is VERY low. Management doesnt know as to what is going on in the office. Atmosphere is a bit stressful, they really try to push you down sometimes. I dont look forward to go there everyday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more interested in your employees opinions.

    I worked at Bank of Ireland as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, good conditions, good benefits including canteen with reduced prices, decent social life, lack of nasty competition between staff, management were generally approachable.

    Cons

    Work was not particularly stimulating, lots of older staff who don't contribute much and are paid better with better conditions than younger, harder working colleagues, pay not great by standards of competitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More promotional opportunities for younger, ambitious staff
