Great company to work for.Good work life balance.Corporate values are important to leadership team - management 'walk the talk'.(I was on a fixed term contract but would go back if I was offered a permanent role).


Training and development opportunities, Remote working a day or two a week if your role permits (before COVID made that concept 'a thing!'


Can't think of a single con!

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.

Good company

Relaxed atmosphere in the workplace and everybody are friendly. Organised outside of work activities to allow networking and to meet new people. Diversity company that treats everyone as an equal. Flexible working hours to promote a good worklife balance.

Great Work experience

Was working within a small persistent team of GIS specialists, Editors and Project Managers that were involved in the maintenance and transfer of water assets.


Easily understandable


No Cons

Pleasant staff, and nice culture

Collaborative culture with a great work life balance and fantastic work colleagues. Work is challenging but helpful staff. No hangover from water charge controversy.

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.

A dynamic and interesting place to work. An exciting and challenging work environment, with technical expertise and a big job to do to improve the nations public water supply and wastewater network.

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.


Free snacks and option to work from home
