    Pros

    - great office - work life balance is there - cheap food - great clubs that will get you discounts in concerts

    Cons

    This feedback is about Digital Sales in Dublin: - lack of transparency about promotions - managers can't share the real news - They will ask you to over achieve but they can't fight for your or for your promotion - Managers will try to keep you at the lowest level and salary possible, and if you are not happy they will just let you go and hire someone new who will get more than what you used to get. - New joiners get more attention, salary, and level then the people staying, and believing the career development sessions (that managers will hammer what you have to show, and will always want to keep you) - Salary increase is a disgrace, it is 1% each year - Bonus at the end of the year (CBI) is not clear, no transparency how it is calculated
