      Not a bad place to work

      Jul 8, 2021 - Executive in Dublin, Dublin
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Employees until certain levels are entitled to 'flexi-time' which gives extra days of leave, educational support, great opportunity to get involved in interesting projects and work with very experienced professionals

      Cons

      Employees from a lower level are not heard, suggestions for change are not received very well by some leaders, bad HR practices with lack of transparency in interview process, some managers are not very experienced and have the public sector mentality of doing little and delegate all the work to other levels without giving clear directions
