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

    Pros

    -Super Team, man kann mit allen gut arbeiten
    -flache Hierarchien
    -spannende Aufgaben
    -viel Verantwortung, auch als Praktikant
    -steile Lernkurve, grade als Praktikant

    Cons

    -Wie das im Banking so ist, können sich die Arbeitszeiten nunmal etwas ziehen, aber das ist bei allen Banken so, also kein Problem
    -Die Teams sind recht klein, was an sich kein Problem ist, aber ich hätte es schön gefunden, nicht der einzige Praktikant gewesen zu sein

    Advice to Management

    Alles top, kann die Firma nur empfehlen! Alles, was zu kritisieren wäre, ist eher branchen- als firmenspezifisch bzw. aufgrund der geringeren Größe der IKB im Vergleich zu den anderen Banken einfach nicht anders möglich
