Excellent progression opportunities, great atmosphere
Being the first point of contact for the customer, and over the phone, it is not uncommon to get rude and abusive customers and it can be draining At the time I was working there all bonus and share benefits were cancelled due to recession

Good people and solid culture.
No people development owing to lack of funding. Equally Salaries and bonus are poor which can also be attributed to lack of funding

Worked with some really good people who in spite of the morale at the time still performed to a really high level
No real careeer progression and management lost a lot of respect for the way they handled the bonus issue. Shame at whats happened to the bank since.

When I worked there, I understood that 'process' and 'bureacracy' were two different things. AIB has both. If I was given a choice between two companies, one that has both, and another that has neither, I'd go for both. If you're a software development contractor, I'd say it's good. You'll get contractor rates but much better stability, because there's lots of work to do and very few permanent staff to do it. There was a lot of 'dead wood' in middle-to-upper management
Before the pay/bonus/promotion freezes, it was widely known and openly spoken that, except in exceptional circumstances, non-management staff got the precisely the same % increase and bonus regardless of performance. After the pay / bonus / promotion freezes, staff who had joined as graduates and spent years working hard to become cornerstones of their departments, were still on first year wages. Many critical teams lost skilled staff (in some cases, entire teams left) but were unable to hire replacements due to 'strategy'. Some low paid staff were 'double-jobbing' as team functions were amalgamated on top of them. Critical services were running threadbare, and underpaid staff at the lower end were stressed and overworked. The mood around the office was bad when I left. Ex colleagues have recently told me that it as deteriorated since then.3

supportive work environment in so far as personal stats go. some treats for the workers on a weekly basis. very up front, if you make mistake it is immediately brought to your attention. could eb a negative for some people.
a lot of false promises, and poor career progression. very difficult lateral movement too. can be very busy at times and due to this the availability for holidays go down. also no christmas bonus or raises
