Pros

Employee benefits, working hours, job security.

Cons

Cronyism; decisions made for political reasons, not based on merit; obvious when staff hired with no relevant prior work experience. Senior management is top heavy and support staff/ support teams are overstaffed with no discernible output. Many old timers who have not developed any new job skills in about 20 years.

Advice to Management

Hire people based on qualifications. Organisation needs more transparency. Sack HR and staff with real HR professionals. Look closely at ever-expanding senior management and overstaffed support teams. Technology and facilities are outdated.

    Pros

    Good salary, subsidised lunch, good company in the moral sense, good life/work balance, subsidised gym membership, patient senior management, good atmosphere

    Cons

    Very difficult to progress in the career sense, especially very difficult to move up from the back office roll to a middle or front office role

    Advice to Management

    Carry on in the same vein but pay more attention to the employees' performance, pay more attention to the course/university which the graduate applicants completed

    Pros

    EBRD provides good benefits, competitive salaries, a good employee cantine, reasonable work life balance if you're used to working at a bank, no taxes

    Cons

    Technology is 10 years outdated, Private sector salaries are outgrowing those at the EBRD despite not having to pay taxes

    Advice to Management

    Current upper management seems to be selected arbitrarily and without prior knowledge of the field they're managing. Smartest people at the company are at the analyst associate level.
