    I have been working at European Investment Bank full-time

    Pros

    International, multicultural. Good work-life balance specially for families with children.

    Cons

    Luxembourg is very small and lacks cultural life. The Bank is burocratic, not transparent, good performance is not recognized and bad performance allowed. High risk of loosing employability as all roles are too EIB focused. Big difference in benefits if you dont have children.
