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

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

    ProsNothing at all, not a single positive aspect

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementTypical 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?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Corporate Banking: Relationship Manager Summer Intern

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHighly 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.

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

    Demoralizing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Athens (Greece)

    ProsAs one of the larger private Greek banks with an expanding network into emerging markets, it had the potential to be a very exciting place to work.

    ConsLengthly, highly detailed annual reviews that were meaningless. A complete lack of transparency about pretty much everything related to position within the bank including grade level, salary levels, career path etc. Advancement and remuneration had little to do with merit and were certainly not linked to annual reviews. Management regularly paid lip service to current marketplace "values" and were startling in lack of any management skills or training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAn working environment characterized by hypocricy is very demotivating. Can only hope that major changes brought about by the financial crisis and nationalization will ultimately make it a better place to work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
