    I worked at Euroclear Bank (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to build expertise if you are in the right team, offers a lot of different great training opportunities. They compensate for overtime and respect work-life balance. There are a lot of young people from all across Europe so it's a good place to make friends if you're new in Brussels. I think most people make some very meaningful friendships with their coworkers which despite all the issues (see below under Cons) is a big deal.

    Cons

    The base salaries are quite modest unless you work a lot of overtime. The opportunities to advance up the ladder are few unless you are Belgian (preferably French speaker). This is one of the very few successful companies of French speaking Belgium, therefore promotions mostly only go to Belgians who then clique up to make sure no non-Belgians cause any disturbance in the force. Overall in your daily work not much room for individual initiatives, do the job as per the SOP and shut up, it feels a lot like working at an assembly line in a factory. Overall it's extremely bureaucratic, I remember once to get reimbursed for some minor expense of literally a couple of euros I needed to follow a manual with 29 steps, I accidently skipped one step and had to start all over again.

    Advice to Management

    I found the Director level of management to be mostly OK, usually the right people are in the right places, however, curiously enough one level lower there are huge issues in the manager-team leader level, full of people who lack both the professional expertise and the people management skills. Lazy unmotivated Belgians who generally have very poor knowledge in their field and make no effort to improve it. Some try to compensate by being overprotective with their team, but mostly they just don't give a hoot. Normally things only get done if you manage escalate to director level. Of course, there are exceptions but they are definitely the exceptions not the rule. I think a lot of truly talented people leave before spending enough time at the company to be even considered for promotion, leaving the aforementioned unmotivated, bored and boring French speaking Belgians behind to run the show, ultimately causing a vicious cycle as these Belgians will only promote those who are exactly like them.
