Very friendly and helpful across departments
Not enough adcess to Bloomberg
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I 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.
