    I have been working at WestLB

    Pros

    Great benefits package, you don't pay for medical or dental, a small amount for vision for you and your family members. Work life balance is awesome, nobody works more than 40-45 per week. You get 20 days of vacation, 3 personal, and unlimited sick days. It's a relatively laid back environment, not like a stodgy investment bank.

    Cons

    Software/hardware is oboslete, it's hard to deal with people in Germany as they have a different way of doing things. Bonus/salary structure is lower than the industry standard. Overall company moral is low. Everything is done in Excel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more into the staff. Offer more training for career advancement.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at WestLB is the people. Overall, local management/HR is great but many times their hands are tied.

    Cons

    There is a lack of transperancy regarding compensation. WestLB currently pays its employees below market especially in terms of bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Head office needs to understand that if they want a successful U.S. presence, they need to pay their employees appropriately.
