    I have been working at VTB Capital

    Pros

    Pay well, generally good people to work with, good location in the city

    Cons

    Non-pay benefits not that great, still dependent on Russia and this impacts the direction of the business, no office canteen

    Former Employee - Operations Associate in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Operations Associate in London, England (UK)

    I worked at VTB Capital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Well paid, fair bonus. Lots of opportunity to learn new skills. A lot of good people, despite politics. London office is in the heart of the banking district so an easy commute.

    Cons

    Very manual work, sometimes very long hours, a lot of politics. Unusual mix of Russian and UK culture, not necessarily a bad thing, but Russian colleagues can seem blunt. Limited progressing due to flat organisational structure and current precarious position of Russian sanctions.

    I have been working at VTB Capital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Can speak only about Infrastructure Capital & Project Finance department experience.
    Professional team, meritocracy, great career prospects, best deals in Russia, friendly and respecting atmosphere, great career prospects, hours could be worse.

    Cons

    Low pay (discussed individuaally, so it can be my idiosyncratic problem), sometimes red tape is painful, no sponsorship of certifications like ACCA and CFA or any other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Economing on salary of employees having low bargaining position at the moment of joining may be a not wise strategy in the long-term. Professional certifications often take a lot of time and money, it would be nice for the company to share this costs at least in part.

    Pros

    Quite literally only pay ! everything else is appaling. This is not a place that supports non-russians who wish to leave before 10pm

    Cons

    Bullying culture, borderline racist and hours are impossible

    Doesn't Recommend
