    Pros

    Stable working environment, company culture tolerates normal working hours (8 hour work), very nice health plan.

    Cons

    Constantly minimizing various benefits during the last years (2010-2014), strong bureaucratic structure, not merit-based promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask inferiors what they really want to do and reassign them to such positions. "Shuffle the deck" and you will see wonders.

    Pros

    There are several pros for this employer such as the friendly environment, the stability and the insurance. Moreover payments are always on time.

    Cons

    People with skills need to wait until the supervisor resigns or gets upgraded until they upgrade. Something like military philosophy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branches need to become more modern.

    Pros

    The biggest bank in Greece and Balkan. You really have good salary and values. The employees have the best benefits of all of the banks.

    The Information Systems that they use are really old and they need updates. The bank is big but it need to get rid of the paper process that made the transactions slow.

    Organise the customer service with more technology and better information system for your employees

    Pros

    respect from superiors, good work-life balance, dependable employer, good working climate

    less than average opportunities for advancement, few educational possibilites (funded by the company), very little room for innovation and/or initiative

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make room for innovation coming from the lower management levels, capitalise on the strengths of the existing workforce by giving more career opportunities and especially by utilising the skills and competences in the most suitable manner.
