    I worked at Tourism Ireland full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice people to work with at lower levels

    Cons

    CEO interested in himself only. only interested in PR for himself. Senior management are not working together as a team. Hard to progress. HR has no idea what they are doing. I saw lots of bullying that no one dealt with.

    Advice to Management

    There is more than the top levels of the company to take care of.

    I worked at Tourism Ireland full-time

    Pros

    There were some opportunities for travel, and a lot of the employees are friendly

    Cons

    Extremely hierarchical, but sometimes unclear in structure. Very poorly organised internally, a lot of management have poor interpersonal skills. Participants in the Global Graduate scheme were badly-treated, with poor pay, inflexibility in the roles, precarious situation in work. While the graduate programme promised hands-on experience, in reality this was often outsourced to third parties, and the graduates... work mainly consisted of administration. HR were ineffective or frankly rude in many ways.

    Advice to Management

    Please overhaul the graduate scheme

    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for. Head Office in Dublin incredibly helpful and supportive of information on how to promote the Island of Ireland around the world. Incredibly passionate team.

    Cons

    Challenges in reporting to other hub areas instead of head office. Very strict in terms of marketing spend and expectations. Very low salary was the only reason for leaving.
