    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 for 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?

    I worked at EFG Eurobank Ergasias as an intern for less than a year

    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.
