      The times they are a changing!

      3 Feb 2023 - Lead Compliance Assurance Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Doors are open to new recruits or external candidates who can negotiate salaries. From my experience, in the teams I have been working with there is a great camaraderie and a sense of collaboration, ownership and accountability. There is a huge amount of support for employees where they have significant personal 'situations' going on.

      Cons

      It is not the same bank it used to be and you can see a decline in the culture and or tone from the top. A lot of rhetoric and they talk the talk, but it is not being reflected on the floor. A lot or staff attrition by longer term experienced staff. The opportunities for existing experienced staff is limited and where there is a job opportunity, their is no option to negotiate remuneration, which discourages movement up the ladder in the business.

      Good first step into Finance and Branch Banking

      19 Jan 2023 - Branch Customer Advisor in Cork
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good team work ethos Work/life balance is perfect. Every weekend and bank holiday off Good supports for training and advice They fully fund QFA attainment Employee pension scheme No banking fees for staff

      Cons

      Entry salary could be a bit higher for work expected Can be tricky to get time off for annual leave. First come first served but on a seniority basis. Summer fills up fast leaving you with off peak holidays to choose from You have to be a quick learner and really take it seriously or you'd quickly find yourself in hot water with the amount of responsibility given. Seems difficult to see a clear career path ahead as a lot of openings are recruiting existing staff that have many years under their belt. Feels like a locked system so to speak.
