I got to work on interesting projects that impact people all around the world.The office had a dym, swimming pool and various sports courts. There was a good work life balance (typical 9-5)However career progression is slow. It is hard to gain full time employment.
Meaningful work and good life work balance
As an It consultant one expects to be in a partnership with the its customer, this is absolutely not the case at EIB.In IT there's a constant squeeze on the suppliers to protect budgets at all cost, even if that means unsustainable stressul working conditions. The results are obvious, huge turn over rates on consultants or "externals" as they are called. Most likely senior management is not even aware of this, its all done by mid/line management that want to show great savings at the expense of others, absolutely despicable...
IT is a deceiving organasation in EIB
J'ai eu le prestige de enfin pouvoir exécuter en pratiques mes connaissances IATA en travel et tourism et d'assister aux préparations,à la logistiques des Agents partants en missions en Afrique. Contact étroits avec les CIBT. Ce fut revivre la vie que j'ai menée petite, étant la fille d'un Agent d"Etat à la coopération belge. A revivre!

Jobs at European Investment Bank
It is not a meritocratic environment. Depending on the department and area can be a really joyful working place or really bad due to the CDD policy and bad management.
Possibility to run for a CDI with good pension scheme
Not meritocratic culture
My traineeship at the EIB is a real opportunity to discover an truly international workspace and learn from amazing colleagues and managers. the blending is a not a typical work that banks do and having the chance to discover is a big advantage.
low salary fo rthe trainees
Working for The European Investment Bank for a remediation project was a very productive and interesting six months. The Bank really do look after their staff and have all the amenities that you would require to work to your maximum. Even though we worked for an external company on behalf of EIB the compliance team that we worked alongside were very helpful and worked brilliantly alongside them to complete the project
Gym, subsidise canteen, bus service
Pros: - Work life Balance - Salary and benefits - Some great people inside the Bank Cons: - Bureaucratic - Be mentally prepared to hear a lot of "Stereotypes jokes/comments", more particularly if you are a European with African origins. - Not really open to change their bureaucratic way of doing things. Personal comment: If you are looking for a good place to end your banking/finance career with good benefits and a good work/life balance, then this definitely the best place for you. However, if you are young and (positively) ambitious (notably by going back to the private sector) then, this is definitely not the best place for you!
Work life Balance & Salary and benefits
Bureaucratic and not open to suggestions from young colleagues
The job was very interesting and I learnt a lot from an institution that operates in the whole Europe and has such an important task. The transactions that I managed where of big help to officers and help them in the development of their jobs and for the well-functioning of the day to day activities.
