Good work/life balance in a talented global office
Senior UX Production Designer, EMEA (Former Employee) –  Dublin29 August 2018
Great place to work. International team of knowledgable members. Benefits including subsidised canteen and very flexible working hours. Management was good for me but not always for other teams. Little autonomy: heavily centralised to US HQ.

Great benefits and salary but poor management in Dublin
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin1 June 2018
Not a positive culture for introverts, a one size fits all attitude towards personality types.The low partitions made it very noisy and hard to concentrate, especially for introverts, but management didn't care.

Management in Ireland is ineffective, too focused on keeping their own jobs rater than moving the business forward.
Pros
Salary and benefits
Cons
Dislike of introverts

Hit refresh didn't work!
Inside Sales, Corporate Accounts (Former Employee) –  Grad Zagreb16 April 2018
Very good products and services, CEO and top management have a great vision, but middle and lower management are killing the company. Burning so many great professionals and careers just to save themselves and cover their own inability to change and grow with the company new strategy and priorities.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Very bad midle management, worst company culture

Ambiente excelente, poca probabilidad de crecer.
Agente de Soporte Técnico (Former Employee) –  Irlanda2 October 2017
Gran experiencia a nivel internacional, trabajo realizado en Inglés, Español e Italiano a nivel global. Al ser un departamento global y de reducido tamaño, las posibilidades de promocionar eran escasas. A pesar de éso, el trabajo era muy gratificante si bien es cierto, la gestión de los mánagers no progresaba a la misma velocidad que el resto del equipo.

Its a company that is constantly changing and fast moving. They are also pushing forward at a very quick pass. They have a tendency to move at a pass so that information are not correctly flowing thru all levels.

Processing agent
Agent de traitement // Process Executive (Former Employee) –  Dublin18 April 2017
8 hours a day I processed orders and queries from Microsofts partners.
I learned how to do Credits, transitions, transfers, add-ons, C5 database, name change, partner change and regular orders.
I didn't have much interaction with my managers, but I liked my teamleaders.
The atmosphere in the office was relaxed and noone was looking at you the wrong way if you went to your colleague to chat. There was several groupings that always ate breakfast and lunch together and everyone could join if they wanted to.
The hardest part of the job was the overtime. Every last week of the month and 3 weeks in the end of the quarter was blocked for vacation.
In the end the colleagues and the team atmosphere was what kept me here.
Pros
The team
Cons
Overtime
