    I have been working at EFG Eurobank Ergasias full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment is stable, with no stress for the next day. There is much specialization in what you do daily.
    Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Too much politics for anything. You spend more time in politics than in doing actual job. It is totally unclear how to progress, and also it does not matter at all if you deserve to be promoted or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent, flexible and utilize the people based on skill and not based on whom you are going holidays with.

    Pros

    Challenging environment. Big family and reasonable benefits. Strong leaders and newcomers

    Cons

    Complicated structures, mostly of different banks that merged. Overtimes mostly needed which ruins life balances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be Reasonable and try to put more effort on work-life balance. Do not promote people bacause somebody pushes you, but get the best person and let him/her grow.

    Only "good people" get promoted: they have just one degree, no job experience, and they are mostly above 40 years old

    Former Employee - More Than Two Master Degrees, Many Years of Job Experience in Thessaloníki (Greece)

    I worked at EFG Eurobank Ergasias full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nothing at all, not a single positive aspect

    Cons

    The managers - (mostly "good people become managers")- treat employees like rubbish, they use slang words while talking to employees. Of course, the top managers are aware about those situations, but they do nothing to change them. Simply because, "no one touches their good people".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Typical Greek culture of "getting things done only with the people that have relations with politicians or with the top managers all others are just useless", what to expect?

    Corporate Banking: Relationship Manager Summer Intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at EFG Eurobank Ergasias as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Highly qualified and motivated personnel. Very good working environment. EFG is one of the four systemic banks of Greece, and thus you get to work with and develop relations with all the key players in the Greek Market.

    Cons

    At the moment there are no real placement opportunities, following the summer internship. Moreover, this path is available only at limited locations.
