    "Good place to work if you find your niche"

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at EBRD full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Interesting projects, interesting countries to work in. Colleagues are great too, there are very few of the full-of-themselves city boys and girls here. Directors are usually very good, higher up it gets a bit more variable.

    Cons

    Senior management is too stale, place is becoming more and more bureaucratic. Career chances are not great, but as I said, if you have found your niche, you can do what you like and have some freedom in it. If your niche is to make lots of money quickly and rapidly move up the greasy pole, this is not your place to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Change for change's sake is probably not such a great idea. There is value in stability, and not everyone who disagrees with change is a disgruntled stick in the mud.

    I have been working at EBRD full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You can still make a difference if you manage to navigate the organisation.

    Cons

    Increasingly hierarchical, losing focus on operations, follow-the-leader cult. HR is useless, and increasingly fad-driven. Increasing job insecurity for junior staff is tilting the organisation to inverse pyramid structure, and will create big problems soon.

    Advice to Management

    Increasing complexity and bureaucracy is not the way to take the EBRD forward. Get the headcount cap removed.
