      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at EBRD for more than a year

      Pros

      Multiculturalism, if you're into that sort of thing. Fairly decent people, for the most part. The rest are just plain nuts.

      Cons

      Heavy workload, stressful environment, short-term contracts, absolutely NO chance of advancement.

      Positive Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at EBRD full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Being a part of an organisation that actually changes people's life, seeing the impact, talking to people and understanding that what I do actually matters.

      Cons

      Manager. Even going downstairs to get a coffee gets you in trouble. Leaving home on time gets you in trouble. Mistakes of other people gets you in trouble (it takes 1 minute to actually see who has done something but much easier is, of course, just to assume and point the finger). It was like a kindergarten.

      Advice to Management

      Change the management...
