    I have been working at UniCredit (Italy) full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    multinational 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 ManagementAdvice

    good luck. I'm out of here...

    Current Employee - Vice President  in  Munich (Germany)
    Current Employee - Vice President in Munich (Germany)

    I have been working at UniCredit (Italy) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The relationship with most colleagues is very good, and I did not have any personal problem with the management. I can organize my work very autonomously. I got some excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth.

    Cons

    Generally, the situation in my area is confused. There appears not to be a very clear strategy, and duplications in the organizational structure as well as ambiguity in the roles and responsibilities are the norm. This generates a lot of unnecessary stress and room for people to evade commitment and ignore deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Roles and responsibility should be lean and defined in a precise and SIMPLE way.

    2. There should be consequences for poor and "selfish" management.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Especially 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 ManagementAdvice

    Acquisitions and merges era is over. Stop being so political!

    I have been working at UniCredit (Italy) as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    For 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 ManagementAdvice

    Higher salary and a formal first-week training program
