      Pros

      Good access to trainings, codes and standards. Good work-life balance.

      Cons

      If u want an average salary, no professional satisfaction, bad management, no recognition, frustration, retirement company, lack of diversity, a company that will not fight (not even try) to keep you, a place that will not help you grow, a company where you need to reinvent the wheel every time ....well this is your company :)

      Terrible place for Architects

      7 Sep 2021 - Registered Architect in Louth

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There were not that many to be honest, surprising for such a global company.

      Cons

      No healthcare or pension despite being promised at the offer stage. Work is not varied and becomes stale quickly They don’t train you in new tech despite initially promising to. Terrible management structure and lack of visibility for workers into what projects are coming up They would rather make an entire department redundant and rehire than train existing people in new tech Potential career killers
