    The mission of the institution. Work life balance. Job safety. Diversity. Great support for women.

    Not merit based. Consensus driven bureaucracy. Most important factor for progress are the number of years spent in a role, regardless of performance. Senior management is low quality.

    "Outsourcing of IT"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Senior Management
    Former Contractor - ITSM Sector in London, England
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at EBRD for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Friendly place to work, great benefits for permanent employees. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    The EBRD IT department is having its very own Brexit scenario. The outsource (leave) campaign was overplayed with a promise of unrealistic financial benefit. The previous high service level from a small team of long-standing members with a wide range of technical experience and all performing 1st, 2nd and 3rd line support, was an unusual model for a service desk. It was cost-effective and efficient, but its... value was overlooked. The IT dept was a shadow of its former self when I left earlier this year, moral was low amongst the remaining staff as more and more top level management were recruited and skilled workers were replaced with inexperienced tech from the new Indian service provider.

    Advice to Management

    Should have put the brakes on this fiasco 3 years ago. Let's face it, it was pushed in by an unscrupulous woman who was eventually fired as her figures didn't add up.

    I worked at EBRD full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance indeed superb

    Cons

    Most people in Banking department have no idea about banking as such, they are paper pushers. Most people non-stop complain about pay but are way overpaid for what they do. All senior management are office politicians vs professional bankers.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture by replacing the dinosaur management.
