    I worked at Bank of Ireland full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people, interesting business, mostly 9 to 5 with little or no overtime

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for promotion. 4 years on a graduate salary when qualified as a chartered accountant after 3 years. No other company tries to pay fully qualified chartered accountants as if they were still new graduates. Will keep losing good people

    Cons

    The hours and shift times aren't great. You're told you work 1 week of lates every 6 weeks, but I had 2x11-7 1x12-8 and 1x2-10 in the space of 6 weeks, so 4 latesin the space of 6 weeks. Also, the job itself is awful because people only call when they've a problem and 9/10 times it's 'your fault'. It's not a job you could stick at (mentally) for more than 1-1.5year. You should do your stint and then progress in the...
