      Pros

      Free food, travel vouchers on airbnb (500 usd every 3 months), some nice people

      Cons

      Lack of authenticity, global fakeness from the management downwards, my manager told me that i looked like i got a chemical peel because i have a skin condition. They talk about mobility and promotions but its almost impossible to do so. I was told my manager would not support my application to another role since other more tenured agents would be applying and it wouldnt be fair to them if I got it having only been in the company for 7 months.

      Pros

      Free Food Insurance Travel Coupon every 3 months

      Cons

      If you know the right people you will get promoted - if don't you will not - no matter how good you are! People got promoted in management positions with no experience! If you criticize what is going on you get blamed and ridiculed - criticism is brushed off. Bullying is common and if you complain about it, you are blamed. HR and Management are incompetent and they back each other, so no change will ever happen. The salaries are a joke! Especially for Dublin! The competition pays for similar roles 5-10k more per year. Staff turnover was so massive, people were told not to write any "goodbye" emails anymore as it would affect everybody negatively! There are very few career opportunities, and these are reserved for people who have connections!

      Pros

      - Free Food - Pension - Travel credit - Mostly great co workers. - Dog friendly - Work from Home policy - Yearly Holidays - Nice office. - Stock options

      Cons

      - Little chance of progression. - Very poor salary. - Management just don't care, any feedback given you are told you are being "Negative" - Very poor yearly pay increases. - Huge difference in % pay increases from team to team even if you got the same rating. - Poor work life balance. - Tech company we certainly are not. We use more google forms then any other company in the world. - They pretend to have a culture but are more interested in getting ready for the IPO. Very hypocritical. - Many of the management are inexperienced, young, and were promoted internally, most have no idea what they are doing. - So much red tape for a tech company - Very poor internal systems to help you do your daily job. - Christmas bonus would be nice ! - Company continuously asks for feedback but does nothing when feedback is given.

      Pros

      Free food, 8 days paid time off for "free" at Christmas

      Cons

      Management are extremely poor, nobody knows what they are actually doing but they consistently reply with being too busy. Not people managers. The culture has disintegrated and too many lines of engagement with everyone looking for "power. I have a lead, a market manager and a terrority manager disgraceful loyalty to employees who have been in the company almost 3 years. Everyone is extremely unhappy and Big Managers say they are "hurt" when feedback is given.

      Pros

      Free Food and Drink Good People Nice Office Space 2K Coupon to use on Site Job itself is fine Birthday Day off Days off at Christmas Opportunities to Travel

      Cons

      The office has changed completely over the last number of years A proper Dog Eat Dog environment Execs hired from Google and Facebook etc have destroyed what culture and atmosphere there was. No trust is shown from senior management and most are fake Lots of talk about wanting to improve things but nothing ever comes to pass Leads try their best but are stuck between a rock and a hard place I would have left a long time ago if it wasn't for the support of my lead Lots of people have left this year and a lot more to come Golden circle environment also and lots of favouritism shown to a select few
