Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Ireland4 November 2019
Very, very weak management. Great engineers but terrible managers. Completely different skill set, and most managers there are out of their depth. Badly in need of management training.

Not all lower management fault though, as the regional strategy and directives coming from up on high were a joke. Completely disconnected from reality.

Dangerous place to work in too, as I saw a lot of highly "questionable" attitudes taken towards certain employees. On paper they profess themselves to be impeccable.

Culture is one of intimidation. Saw many colleagues "heavily encouraged" to travel to dangerous locations to keep utilisation high. Very much "the boy's club" mentality. Was always amused at the exact same dress sense all the managers had.

Unclear deliverables, poor pay and very high workload. Highly competitive environment with little or no collaboration.

Not personally recommended as life is too short. Some people may like that environment though. Each to his/her own.
Pros
Travel to atypical locations. Get free immunization jabs and malaria pills.
Cons
No direction, training, clear deliverables. Management structure is non existent.

Not enough work
Software Development Intern (Former Employee) –  Athlone, County Westmeath10 July 2019
Really great people, but as an intern there really was not enough work going through the team for me to ever feel involved. Sprints would go by as where I had very little to do as more senior members of the team would take any available stories.
Pros
Flexi-Time
Cons
Not enough work

Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin28 March 2019
A company that has changed in recent years but had a great culture of collaboration and focus on customers, doing well again with 5G and hope to see it rebound, learned a lot there and great opportunities to travel and work with people around the globe.
Pros
travel, new technology
Cons
managers tend to stay in their roles a long time so internal mobility can be slow

Indoor work with no heavy lifting
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Athlone, County Westmeath7 February 2019
Job security. There is no culture of responsibility or consequence so nobody gives out when you make a mistake. You are more likely to get into trouble for having a bad attitude then for being a bad programmer.

However, since most of the time nobody will ever tell you that you made a mistake and there is no culture of mentoring, it can make it very difficult to learn how to do things better let alone learn new skills.

Career progression is minimal. Junior to senior after five years but no technical path after that. On paper, there are master and principle engineers but they are political appointments and are very rare.

The people are nice and generally relaxed and it is easy to pass a number of years here.
Pros
Flexitime
Cons
poor pay

Pros
Great working environment, free tea-coffees, gets hand dirty with latest technologies
Cons
Not much interest shown by management in career movement

Poor salary and career advancement prospects

Poor salary and career advancement prospects for technical staff. New roles consist of managing off-shored resources and fronting projects towards the customer.

Unfortunately I believe this is a dying company.

Cons
Poot pay and lots of travel
