    qualified but small-minded co-workers, full of old rope teams, long-term dependence

    Research (Former Employee) Munich (Germany)

    Pros- qualified co-workers
    - self-motivated people
    - positive attitude of some colleagues

    Cons- the biggest problems: almost no leadership skills on any level!!
    - a lot of fake friendliness, everybody's looking only on his own career
    - very bad incentives to change this behaviour – it's sink or swim
    - long term dependence (people stay only because they don't want to go to Frankfurt after living in Munich for a couple of years)
    - diversity, if any, only on the paper, people with 200k/year would call colleagues behind their back f****t (a very insulting word for gay people) in front of the whole division and no one would care
    - incapable recruiting department (unable to attract good people, frustrated applicants)

    Advice to Senior Management- Headhunt for experienced leaders from outside
    - Give the right incentives to good people, as some of the best people from my department left for competitors like BayernLB which is like transferring a dissatisfied Philipp Lahm from Bayern München to FC Augsburg.

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

    good if you are lucky to work in the right team

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    Pros- good work/life balance, especially good for your last few years before retiring
    - there are a few very professional and knowledgeable people all around

    Cons- some projects are taken ahead for months before suddenly dying
    - crazy people worked here in the past who set up transactions which make no economic sense and you may happen to be restructuring one if you are unlucky
    - pay in line with results, so do not expect big money
    - no cafeteria, need to go to expensive places to grab lunch
    - things that should be secret are public knowledge
    - things that should be known to employees are in fact unknown/uncertain/unconfirmed

    Advice to Senior ManagementA company focused on merely surviving will never attract big talents.

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

    Lost some identity after acquired by Unicredit

    Relationship Manager Corporates (Former Employee) Munich (Germany)

    ProsSalary compeitive (like in most banks)
    Located in Munich in comparision to all other banks which are in Frankfurt
    Big corporation with many opportunities

    ConsMore and more controlled from Italy
    Italians don´t understand corporate business (Unicredit is a retail bank)
    More and more benefits are cut

    Advice to Senior ManagementEducation of employees is key. Currently employees are not really valued, which might be mainly due to the GFC.
