    Internship in Financial Transactions

    Internship (Former Employee) Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

    ProsThe people were very friendly, the office culture was very good. The department was one of the best within the company. The building in Frankfurt is very nice, good food opportunities in the subsidized restaurant.

    ConsThe project I got on was very low-profile and led to relatively monotone excel-grunt work. I did not get to go to clients, so I was without my team in the office for 1/3rd of the time.

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

    Good if you seek stability

    Consulting Intern (Former Employee) Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

    ProsThe cantine was great and the German HQ is a modern skyscraper in Frankfurt. The offices offer free coffee and tea, and a nice view over Frankfurt. The location is very central and there are nice restaurant and a new mall in the neighbourhood., The project where I was staffed was not too interesting, but my colleagues were great and the performance of the supporting functions and backoffice (IT support) were excellent.

    ConsPeople were not overly ambitious at the firm and I lacked cognitive challenge during my internship. There might have been more variation in my tasks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease make sure your interns are learning something new every week. They are not there for the pay but to learn.
