(based on 8 ratings in 2014)

How would you describe relations with management at your firm? Does the management keep you informed of firm-wide decisions? Are you able to contribute to these decisions?


"In my experience, managers have been very accessible. I have worked closely with my line managers on my different projects, and I have been free to go to them with any questions or queries. They have made sure that I have settled in with the teams I work with and have regularly asked for my feedback on how I am getting on."
HR, Graduate, Naas
"This is something that struck me from the beginning. All members of management are extremely approachable. After only a few months of training the Managing Director approached me and asked me how my training was going and was genuinely interested in my feedback. Most managers are good role models but graduates are also provided with mentors who are not their line manager whose role is to answer questions/help with problems that the graduate does not feel comfortable asking their line manager. This can be as trivial as asking what the dress code is to a staff event."
Graduate, Newbridge
"I have only had one manager since starting, but I am satisfied with the manager I have and mentoring I have received. Internal communication is frequent and informal and we make sure that everyone on the team is up to speed. Performance feedback is mainly carried out in your appraisals, every six months for your first 18 months, then once a year. Praise and recognition is good, fair and honest from my line manager but I have never received any from any higher position."
Midlevel, Newbridge
"I have found that managers are easily approachable and honest open feedback is regularly received."
