    I worked at DVB Bank as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best team members to work with - super friendly, helpful, and encouraging. Learnt a lot working alongside them, and it's a very flat hierarchy so I could work alongside the MD or the SVP of different divisions, no problems. Very much appreciated the opportunity to work there.

    Cons

    Not really anything. I would strongly consider applying here for a full time. I'm not sure about pay compared to other banks, though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do. You're the dream workplace.

    Pros

    DVB biedt erg goede totaalpakketten (salaris+voordelen) vergeleken met de concurrentie. Op de meeste plaatsen in de cultuur op kantoor redelijk aangenaam en staat een fatsoenlijke werk/privé balans toe. Er zijn een aantal interessante kansen voor afgestudeerden via het trainee programma van de bank.

    Cons

    Opleiding is niet gestroomlijnd. Je "leert door te doen" dus als dit niet je stijl is, kan het onaangenaam zijn.

    Een ander minpunt is het bestaan van veel topfunctionarissen, niet zozeer de helderste lichten en meest hardwerkende van de medewerkers. Dit laat weinig ruimte voor groei nadat een bepaald punt is gepasseerd voor jonger personeel en gaan voor banen ergens anders. De wisselwerking binnen afdelingen kan soms problematisch zijn, tot zekere hoogte door culturele verschillen (Duitse collega's hebben meer de neiging tot bureaucratie vergeleken met Londen, NY en Singapore)
