The projects I worked on were challenging, and my supervisors made themselves available and were more than willing to answer my questions. Despite the fast-paced corporate environment, my co-workers were friendly and approachable. Also, the company made sure to organize company events and outings where you got to know each other outside the workplace.
My only con was that there were language barriers at times because I don't speak German.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Deutsche Börse in September 2011.
There were two rounds of interviews. Unusually, you are interviewed by the more senior member of staff first, they decided if you are generally a good fit for the company, in my case they didn't really care about specifics they were investigating how communicative and professional I was more than anything else. Once you are accepted then you move on to the more technical interview. Mine was for a junior role so there weren't too many technical questions and it was very laid back, in fact I think the interviewer perceived that to be their 'style'. I was slightly frustrated as, as is so often the case, they weren't prepared and couldn't really describe what I would actually be doing. I would recommend having some very specific questions to be able to ascertain what you need to know as it won't be offered.

It was a junior role and I really needed a job so I didn't negotiate...also, they are known for paying well so it wasn't necessary.

Frankfurt is Germany's largest stock exchange, and Eurex (which Deutsche Börse jointly operates with the SIX Swiss Exchange) is among the largest futures markets in the world. The company licenses Xetra, which boasts more than...
