    I have been working at Pobal

    Pros

    Good pay for relatively little effort. A big plus is that you don't get too pushed with getting work done either if that appeals to you. If you've given up on a career, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    I'm not there too long, but first thing you notice is a strange atmosphere. People I work with didn't seem to like company very much. I couldn't understand that at first, but I do now. Such low morale, very little push to get things done from so called management, you sort of start of becoming a zombie about your work. I feel like I'm losing knowledge I previously had! Also, doesn't matter how hard you work... as it will be no different to somebody who spends they're whole day on the internet. Management know about it but don't do anything. In fact, if you're good you're more than likely to be used by your senior management for their own self promotion, with little thanks or recognition.

    Advice to Management

    I've no advice to management. I have such little interaction with them and see no sign of what they do. Communication really poor, emails, events don't really happen. My guess seems to be that they are more concerned with looking after themselves than realise how much people really are demotivated about things. What do they do, what are they at? Plus, it seems like that positive review about the place is... from HR or management - I wish they'd give some detail regarding why the place is so great??
