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

Great work environment. You get to work on cool technologies. Benefits are very good. Management is fair but all major decisions are made in the U.S. Reviews are very tough.

Aspects to be improved.
Collections Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dublin22 August 2016
The company culture should be clarified and more visible in the workplace so the employees identify themselves with both.
Possibilities of progress within the company are very poor causing a high level of turnover. Also rewards and benefits are not clearly and professionally monitored.

Everyday Life in Havok (Microsoft Ireland)
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dublin19 May 2016
Being privileged to work in the finance department for a software company, the atmosphere is slightly more relaxed and quieter while still maintaining a high level of professionalism. Our hours are flexible depending on deadlines like month end closing for example. The management treat all employees with the highest level of respect and praise. The hardest part of my job is probably the last 4 days of the month when we look towards closing the month end accounts. We generally are incredibly busy with journal entries and nominal postings for our consolidated accounts.
As my roll is predominately operations so I enjoy taking on new challenges and daily tasks that fall my way.
Pros
Enjoyable atmosphere
Cons
laborious month end at times

This company is going down hill very fast. Managers punish you and don't keep promises. Not a real sales environment and not a good place for gaining sales experience.

great team
Supply Chain Information Manager (Temporary Role) (Former Employee) –  Leopardstown, D11 November 2015

Pros
Management poor level

Very diverse company with a requirement for continuous learning and overtime.
Transaction Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dublin, Dublin 1822 July 2015
Management could have been stronger, Communication occurs through out the team but retaining the information being shared was the issue. Constant updates and changes in protocol were made daily with very little training. Therefore errors and uncertainty are common.

Subsidized food and free food during overtime was nice and we had some other good perks including a pool table during quiet periods.

Future progression within the company is bleak as a new phase in the Company's sourcing will see many positions and work loads being sent abroad within the next 5 years.
Pros
Subsidized and free meals, excellent colleagues from all over, learning advanced Microsoft systems/programs
Cons
Constant overtime, high stress, not enough training, low incentive

Company focused on delivering results- fast
Operations Deal Desk Manager (Current Employee) –  Dublin28 March 2014
It's a great company to work for when you want to be a part of world changing solutions. Everyone is 100% committed and working hard on delivering the best results as fast as possible. It's a fast paced environment, where everyone has the liberty to manage their work life balance with the support of the management. It's definitively not your standard 9-5 job, and it gives you the chance to take on new challenges every day.
Pros
Canteen, on site post, nail bar, cleaners, car wash
Cons
Difficult to schedule post work activities, as weekly hours may differ week by week
