    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Flexible working (but not all areas - up for the department to decide) Pension In Ireland - bank is a big player so treatment of staff is a lot different there.

    Cons

    People who work well, always get given lots more work. People who perform poor are left to carry on as is. No bonus unlike most other banks and no real perks either. Managers obsessed with saying the word 'Agile'. Too many people have been there too long, and many people do the same work everyday and in the same manner for years. Lack of questioning of processes and encouragement to improve the way things are done. Lots of tools in the place who stop innovation and drag out all the processes. Pay rises are at a minimum - and are presented as bonus which is nonsense. Technology stuck in the dark ages. Management have their own clique posh white club. Do get to promoted you need to be close to the seniors. No praise or recognition of day to day work or even projects which add value.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of deadwood, Allow people (generally younger) who are keen to improve and make use of new technology. Just because people sit at their desk all day doesn't mean they are doing more work than others. Look at productivity.

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

    Pros

    Provides opportunity for progression and external training appropriate to the job. Nice atmosphere and office space with open-mindedness to improvements where possible

    Cons

    Some examples of nepotism within the office I was based in but may not be the case in other offices. The systems in place need quite an extensive over-hall to compete with existing and emerging banking systems.

    Advice to Management

    Review of current BOL and personal banking systems which would help alleviate the influx of customer care requests, staff and wait times and provide a better selling point for prospective customers.
