Okay for Interns
Very relaxed, so much so you have to be very proactive to get some good experience otherwise you will be left alone all the time.

It might have been because it was initiating stage so there was not enough time for interns as everyone was super busy with the integration period.

No loyalty there
Overall it's a nice place to work in, but IW is not doing anything to develop the loyalty of its employees. Combined with a lack of transparency and questionable management (that is completely disconnected from the employees), good elements tend not to stay too long.
Pros
Working in the water industry
Cons

It was the best place to learn new skills
My working experience with Irish water was relatively productive to my career. The typical day at work was starting with integration testing systems to ensure all servers talk to each other and to test a desire set of module advice by the test manager.Then later carry on with the regression testing. I co-ordinate with my colleges if any major defect found and notify it to the test manager and escalate it to the development team on the managers go. All over, the time worked in Irish water was unforgettable learning experience.
Pros
Free snacks and option to work from home
Cons
None
