    Former Employee - Management Support Analyst in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Management Support Analyst in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Deutsche Bank as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Friendly Office Culture
    - Open to providing training courses to interns
    - Experience with multiple teams and multiple roles
    - Positive work environment
    - Team work was encouraged, hard-work was valued

    Cons

    - Some employees seemed to have a 'who can be at work the most hours per day' competition
    - Very large organization and building meant there were many people you didn't know
    - Not enough fridge space or microwaves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good to have team separated rather than large open plan offices where many teams work in essentially the same room, to make the teams feel more united as a team rather than a one fish in a school of hundreds.
