    I worked at Commerzbank full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Short work hours compared to rest of industry

    Cons

    Joke of a staff. If you are lazy and don’t want to work hard and make out just fine then this place is for you. Most of the front office would get laughed at by BB yet they actually think they are special. No talent here pretty much a place to build a resume or to end retire at. Nothing more to be said here.

    Advice to Management

    Get real management and stop hiring lazy unskilled Santander employees.

      I worked at Commerzbank full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Average salary, good vacation time, office location

      Cons

      Poor management, ZERO opportunity for growth, technology resources are archaic!

      Advice to Management

      Place is a three ring circus- only difference is these clowns are wearing suits. Spend less money flying people around the globe and invest that in your employees and systems. Anyone with a decision making capability does anything, but that. Management should take a long hard look at their overall objectives—the only good rate at this place is turnover.
