    Pros

    Location is very central, great colleagues and lots of opportunities in wider group of Irish Life. Lots of activities for staff, encourages staff engagement

    Cons

    Not many challenges to be honest, or nothing unusual for such a large company. A little bureaucratic at times, but open to feedback and change

    Advice to Management

    Value the staff, a lot of experience in the company.

    I have been working at Irish Life (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been there 6 months now and have to say it's a fantastic place to work. Great culture of corporation on the team and always very friendly colleagues and management. The place has been extremely professional to date with regular feedback meetings to review progress and outline new targets etc. there is a great canteen facility and fantastic sports facilities do you can exercise on your break if you prefer. There's also a great culture of sports with regular activities which people are encouraged and supported to participate in. Also the cream on the cake regular beer evenings where people relax and unwind in lovely surroundings. All in all a fantastic place to work so far.

    Cons

    I think there have been s few leavers recently who are leaving (it appears) for very minor reasons. Heard grumblings that pay may be an issue for some. But as far as I'm concerned if pay is an issue up skill and they fully support educational opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe introduce a mentoring programme to ensure staff are on the path to success.
