      Pros

      I had a really positive experience with Bank of Ireland, very understanding regarding mental health and required time off work. Dealt with the COVID situation promptly and safely.

      Cons

      More and more scripting being added to each phone call, making it difficult to keep on top of everything.

      Pros

      Good benefits. Currently promoting Work life balance. Have started to engage with staff.

      Cons

      Poor salaries. Lack of internal promotion. Sexist. Lack of diversity and cross training. No foresight regarding staff development. Far too many Roosting middles comfortable but with no structure - top salaried yet mid level people holding up budgets to tackle recruitment. There is no definitive plan, scattered management heavy with tasks - but no clear stated goal. Management heavy Vs worker bees. Creation of new Roosting teams to tackle unknown objectives, pulling worker bees further into confusion. A LOT of pressure and frustration on the bottom rung due to the subsequent outflow of staff. Disappointing and frustrating having to fight for recognition and support to do daily workload. No support or training for individuals or management to tackle almost rampant bullying by both management and staff, which is an accepted part of working with Bank of Ireland. Lack of diversity with other cultures and people with disabilities.

      Nice people - lots people I have met across teams are great!

      Cons

      You are not part of Bank of Ireland - this is made abundantly clear, yet you have to complete their nonsense online courses.

      Badly Managed

      24 Jan 2018 - IT Analyst in Cabinteely, Dublin

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some of the people I worked with were great, although most have left.

      Cons

      I work in IT in Bank of Ireland and I would not recommend it. The bank are overly reliant on outsourcing and consulting contracts for IT operations and project management. There is little oversight of what these 3rd parties are doing or whether they are providing value. The result is a secretive, inefficient and frankly depressing working environment where it is difficult to get anything done. I believe working here engenders cynicism in people who genuinely enjoy working in IT.

      Pros

      Bank of Ireland was a really eye opening experience. They provided an insight into not only one area but many.

      Cons

      From my own experience there was not much that was that bad. I was allowed interact with so many parts of the company over a short space of time.

      Moving in the right direction (but watch who's steering the ship).

      Pros

      I was delighted to come on board to work for Bank of Ireland. I believe the company is trying to move forward and compete and I worked with some really good people in my time there.

      Cons

      I had the misfortune of reporting directly to a person of questionable integrity and it became impossible for me to remain working there, despite the fact that I was making progress and forming good working relationships elsewhere in the company. Upline management were unsupportive, HR sympathetic but ineffective. It didn't surprise me to learn that she had left the company shortly afterwards. A damaging experience at the time but what doesn't kill you etc...
