    Pros

    Pleasant team. Good support from managers and colleagues. Strict four eyes principle. Very efficient IT systems. Training opportunities available. Work generally interesting.

    Cons

    General public-sector issues - some simple things take a very long time. Quite of lot of gossiping.. Job for life mentality and the pros and cons that entails.

    Advice to Management

    As is always the case, it will depend on who your manager is. I'd say I was fairly lucky on the whole.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bundesbank

    Pros

    Deutsche Bundesbank has a very good life-wirking balance with flexible working hours. For example if you can 2 extro hours today, you can work less two hours tomorrow or some day in the future.

    Cons

    On the other hand, the bank has a quite stil working environment, that means people are quite sticking to daily routines. The personal management department is particularly a trouble with a lot of paper working to do if you have something to ask them for.

    Advice to Management

    First of all it is a very precious to have a working experience in a central bank. The German central bank has a really hard-working staff force. Every one is delicated to his or her own task. But sometime there are difference between interns and formal staff. We understand that, but still hoping a more welcome working air.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is Relaxed Atmosphere and Nice people all around you Nice benefits like your own desk - no startup environment which is usually crowd etc.

    Cons

    Uncompetitive: for young aspiring people this is probably not the right place Also ECB is starting to take BuBas position as it is gaining more sovereignty in Europe

    Advice to Management

    Reforms, increase importance as ECB takes Bundesbanks position in Europe. The BuBas place is not safe and they should try to build a USP

      I have been working at Deutsche Bundesbank part-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Zeiterfassung sichert geregelte Arbeitszeiten, es wird Gleitzeit angeboten; die Tätigkeit im öffentlichen Dienst sichert gleiche Bezahlung bei gleicher Leistung, Teamarbeit. Es werden regelmäßig Fortbildungen angeboten, die Teilnahme an diesen wird erwartet.

      Cons

      Die Strukturen sind sehr hierarchisch, der Aufstieg ist schwierig, wie überall im öffentlichen Dienst Unterscheidung zwischen FH/Uni-Abschluss.
