      Good company, great people

      Pros

      Great city centre location with lots of transport routes and solid choice of places to eat. This area of Dublin is only going to get better with the new building work that is going on around the office. Realex is a fantastic place to grow your career if you're willing to apply yourself. You'll be working with some very best people and the latest technology. On occasion you may have to dabble with some older tech so you'll be getting a wide variety of experience. Realex lately are quite flexible in terms of the work environment, having recently renovated the desktops in favour of laptops, there are quite a few people working remotely when it better suits them. There seems to be a lot of opportunity for travel if you're in to that. Free coffee and lots of free fruit. Occasionally there is beer and pizza in the office while someone gets to show off something clever that they've been working on. Great social aspect to working at Realex, you'll probably be out on the tear with your colleagues a lot. Sports and Social have a healthy budget too, for company social events, they organise all sorts from Secret Santa, to charity based events, to cinema trips and the odd drinking session.

      Cons

      The open plan office can be a bit counter productive sometimes and for the number of people in the Dublin office it can be a bit cramped in certain areas and at certain times. It's fine if you get yourself a pair of noise cancelling headphones. The laptop screens are ultra low resolution, so despite having the mobility, you're tied to your desk. No breaking away for some quiet time. The culture of the company has changed a bit since Global Payments took over (there are pros and cons to this and if you're joining new then you probably wont see the cons since the cons are largely by contrast).

      Pros

      Great people, nice perks including regular work outings, culture of promoting from within - amazing rate of promotion from the support team. Nice chill out area with pool table and xbox

      Cons

      Business changed significantly after acquisition and while this wasn't necessarily a negative, it did impact a lot of former employees. Could be a pain waiting to play pool while the guy with the egg shaped head was playing and kept changing the rules to make sure he would always win. Would have been nice to have more holidays also.

      Is it a bank? Is it a tech company? Neither! It's Global Payments

      Pros

      Huge opportunity to learn about every minute detail of the payments landscape. Great people, seriously, the best. Dublin has an infectiously positive outlook.

      Cons

      It's an old-school corporation trying to be a technology company by doing the minimum amount possible. The politics would embarrass Westminster. Choices based on short term results are frustrating. Legacy attitudes are dangerous. It's an old-school corporation trying to be a technology company by doing the minimum amount possible.

      Pros

      some perks like nespresso coffee, pool table, S&S etc, made some good friends there

      Cons

      poor salary, reluctant to give earned bonuses and increases unless you were deemed valuable, some managers who thought they were untouchable and were very resistant to change or suggested improvements if it didn't fit their way of thinking, the assignment of busy work in the very rare time when we were not slammed due to staff shortages or just poor product releases that were clearly not QA'ed at all.
