    Pros

    - Good Stock Program. - Starting Salary is respectable. - People you work with are very friendly. - Free Coffee on-site. - Health Cover. - Site/team management in Cork is excellent in my experience. They are fair, approachable and friendly. - Relocation support.

    Cons

    - Slow career progression. - The salary increase, year-on-year is disheartening. - In software roles, work can become stagnate/boring, leaving you feeling like you are not developing your skillset.

    Pros

    Great team, highly talented, great work/life balance, going the extra mile is both recognised and rewarded. Focused on life long learning with huge resources to help you become the best you can be.

    Cons

    Exceptional ability expected - its "work hard or doing start playing the game". Company under some global pressures at the moment, though this is more being felt in other countries than Ireland.
