    Large Organization striving to return to profit

    Senior Risk Manager (Current Employee) Milano (Italy)

    Prosmultinational with potentially lots of opportunities all over Europe.
    great for long term career paths without great targets (family people)

    Cons- Internal job market does not really work. Positions are created ad hoc for already selected candidates. Only a few are really open to everyone.
    - Not very meritocratic environment. Follows the old habits of assigning roles to friends rather than best performers.
    - Little transparency
    - Old dinosaurs give little space to new entrants and young motivated professionals
    - salaries low. prefer UK or Switzerland

    Advice to Senior Managementgood luck. I'm out of here...

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

    A decade of struggling with reorganizations

    GBS Area Analyst (Current Employee) Milan (Italy)

    ProsThe pay is good and there are many international projects and activities. The new HQ in also a very nice place to work

    ConsEspecially outside business related areas, you gotta be connected to get the minimum level of visibility and have a career. This does not apply to Legal, Risk and few other functions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAcquisitions and merges era is over. Stop being so political!

    I found my experience very useful for getting a first touch to how to work on an international company.

    Administration (Current Employee) Milan (Italy)

    ProsInternational team
    Opportunity to interact with seniors sooner than expected
    Opportunity to learn from seniors in a top bank

    ConsFor an intern, the salary level is minimum and it should be raised.
    As intern, you do not get a formal training process but you are just thrown into the office to work

    Advice to Senior ManagementHigher salary and a formal first-week training program

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The worse company ever!

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Milan (Italy)

    ProsI wish there were, but sadly, there is none whatsoever. The worse company ever!
    Incompetent managers. Unicredit does not respect it´s own integrity charter!

    ConsVery bad management!!
    Only those who can comply to irregular business reach the top.
    Use of old tech. Not transparent to customer or employees. Management only concerned about own growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo need...the managemnt at Unidcredit would never take good advice.

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