What is the salary like at your company? Do you have any comments on pay and bonuses at your firm?

2015

"Although I feel that for the hours I work, I could receive higher remuneration, otherwise I do think that my remuneration is fair."
Graduate, Dublin
"The salary is very good, and there are increases in pay when you achieve certain educational qualifications on the job."
Graduate, Dublin
"I think that the salary is very fair, and it will increase depending on performance, and when made permanent."
Graduate, Dublin
"Overall for graduate level I would say the pay I receive is quite good - and this is alongside an excellent pension. The Professional Diploma in Financial Advice exams are paid for, which is very good."
Graduate, Dublin
"In my opinion, remuneration here is appropriate, and satisfactory for the type of job/work involved."
Graduate, Dublin
"I think that it is a great starter salary."
Graduate, Dublin

2014

"I think the graduate salary is fair, and I wouldn't expect a bonus at this stage; however, the pay rise once you roll off the programme and are made permanent is minimal. In my opinion, the bank won't keep people at the Associate/Deputy Manager level unless they raise wages."
Graduate, Dublin
"I think that pay could be higher, with overtime and more financial incentives to encourage staff and boost morale."
Graduate, Dublin
"I believe that the pay for graduates in my company is much better than the average pay for graduates in other accounting/audit companies."
Graduate, Dublin
"The bank offers a competitive salary based on the industry average."
Graduate, Dublin
"There are bonuses for completing a QFA exam but this is your only bonus. Graduate pay seems average to below average, with salary after the programme increasing steadily. There are no allowances for career progression such as ACCA or CFA on offer to graduates."
Graduate, Dublin
"I was initially very happy with the salary, but as I got more experienced and progressed through my accounting exams I expected increments which did not happen."
Finance, Graduate, Dublin
"Working in Belfast previously the pay was excellent compared to the cost of living, but since moving to work in London, the salary is not as favourable given the increase in living costs."
Graduate, London
"Graduate salary is good, however there isn't a big step up after rolling off the graduate programme to become an FTE in my opinion."
Graduate, Dublin
"Salary is in fine with other graduate roles however, the cost of Dublin is quite high and the fact the programme is four years without any pay rise can be quite difficult, my rent has already increased 10% since last year, but I have no rise in salary to coincide with this."
Graduate, Dublin
