      Flexible working arrangements, autonomy, regular 1:2:1's with manager, some good benefits in you're into those.

      Cons

      Not a lot of opportunity for career progression within the team I was in, however that may have been down to an imminent take-over.

      Get it on your CV, then get out quick

      Pros

      Modern building, handy location for luas and buses (forget it if you need to drive as no parking), great starter company for experience out of college/school, good benefits such as 25 annual leave days with option to buy more and charity days as days in lieu, VHI, bike to work, a lot going on outside of the day to day (guest speakers, pride day, mental health week, sports and social, etc.)

      Cons

      Really missing a lot of the basics in order to become a great (or even good) place to work. Management is based mainly on who you know and how much of a "yes man" you are. Pay is below standard, no increase for internal moves and promotions, no incentive to work harder as poor bonus structure. Great people leaving in droves for better money and better experience, and they don't care because they will get someone cheaper. Little communication between wholesale and retail, it's very them versus us. A lot of blame culture with management wanting staff to character bash each other. Facilities team are the rudest people I've ever met, no people skills whatsoever.
