    I have been working at European Investment Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    IF you are EIB agent then you have pros - however there is a great work life balance and good atmosphere

    Cons

    1- too much people working there and dont care a thing about the bank ( some only care are about the benefits they receive. 2. Some HOD hire individuals and even if they dont perform they still keep them and they receive salary making it difficult for others to work with them. This problem is so because the hiring process is so heavy and tedious. 3. Some individuals have been doing the same job for 10+ years and... have no motivation whatsoever - just waiting to retire 4. Not forgetting the fact that if you are external ( interim,consultant ) - You will be treated differently and there is no shame in the game with it - they will make you see that you are not ''staff'' 5. Some indiviuals sit all day and do nothing .

    Advice to Management

    Equal treatment for ALL - NO matter what EIB agent or NOT ! Have your HOD's be honest with personnel about staff performance.
