Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

    Good be a stimulating place if they didn't have such bad managers

    Jul 9, 2014 - Beleidsmaker in Amsterdam

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, like the possibility to work from home once a week. Societal relevance of work. Opportunities to follow educational courses on the job.

    Cons

    Salary for starting professionals is good. But salaries for seniors is relatively low. That's why the people working there are either inexperienced but driven (starters), or experienced but passive and not very skilled (otherwise they would have found job at another company with twice the salary). Several older people who are ' biting their time' until pension. No eye for diversity. There are two people in the whole company who have a dark skin, and there is one of Moroccan descent. Predominantly white males. Via EC guidelines DNB prescribes a certain diversity on boards of the banks and insurers they supervise, but they don't comply with this themselves. Bad managers. The people who get promoted are the people who know how to kick down and suck up. Save a few exceptions, DNB managers are selfish and not exactly people managers.

    Great place to be for economic researchers who would like to stay in The Netherlands for a while.

    Mar 18, 2015 - Research Economist in Amsterdam
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Women friendly working environment, great colleague's, broad possibilities to attend scientific conferences, informal setting of the working floor, few vertical layers between directors and workers, large secondment network (ECB, BIS, US Fed, IMF, other National Central Banks, economic department of many universities).

    Cons

    The part of doing policy relevant work feels as an obligation where it actually should not be like that. Many complain that the amount of working papers is the main criteria to pass the annual review performance even though managers said it was not.

    Engaging and fun

    Jul 12, 2014 - Supervision Analyst in Amsterdam
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to make a difference, learn and grow as a junior employee, especially in supervision (Insurance/Banking/Pensions) where you can literally go straight out of college into the boardroom. Excellent compensation at a junior level, on par with top private sector employers and competitive with junior London financial sector salaries once you factor in the cost of living. Flexible working hours and good work/life balance. Large training budget per employee.

    Cons

    Not very meritocratic at the more senior levels, promotions to management are mostly driven by internal politics, in some cases resulting in very poor management. Together with poor compensation at these levels, this lack of opportunities results in most good people leaving after a couple of years.

    Pros

    Overall it's a very good employer. - Employees are typically intrinsically motivated - A lot of possibilities for personal development - work-life balance excellent - Employees and management are very knowledgeable - Pay is good

    Cons

    Not so many, in my view. - Can be very hierarchical - Low turnover of employees (in part because it's such a good employer) - Not so much pressure (can also be considered a good thing of course)
