    Former Employee - Financial Analyst/Credit Workouts Officer in Athens (Greece)

    I worked at Alpha Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice workplace
    Good compensation compared to the unemployment rates dominating the Greek workforce, let alone young professionals

    Cons

    Dreadful promotions scheme. One has to really wait for many years to get something better than entry level
    Management has cut any remaining benefits, leaving us with base salary
    Not the greatest way to start your career as it will have you really condensed focus-wise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try escalate some of the responsibilities managers have assumed to the divisions' staff. Impossible to prove worth if there is not a clear project in line

    Pros

    Good working environment and climate, customer oriented philosophy on sales, not target oriented without considering client needs, almost 200 years of banking history, well established into the market

    there is a good balance between sales bonuses and real client needs that managment must not be scared off
