Project management analyst intern

Project Management Analyst Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Deutsche Bank as an intern for less than a year

ProsThis was a really great company to work for, and for a bank they had a really great company culture. I have friends working from Morgan Stanley and Goldman, and I would say I enjoyed my work way more than them.

ConsThe big cons I had working there is similar to any other big company. It's hard finding out who to contact for which problems, but they try there best to fix that issue.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
