    I worked at Piraeus Bank S.A. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the most innovative banks to work within Greece and EU.
    A lot of different and interesting projects to work on.
    Regardless of the financial circumstances, the working environment was very positive. Kudos to my ex-colleagues.

    Cons

    There was no way of getting a promotion.
    I personally felt that even If I was valuable for my team and the department - the management never cared to help me or promote me.
    Too many politics - across departments
    The Head of the Department never saw the value of UX Design.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to give at this moment, knowing how difficult is the current situation in Greece. The only thing I can comment on is that it was a pity to let all the young, hardworking and passionate people go.
