    Former Employee - Summer Analyst in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Summer Analyst in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Deutsche Bank as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    A big company with plenty of opportunities for moving around and finding a desk that suits you well. Good pay for an internship. The buddy and mentor systems are both useful; it's good that they're separate at Deutsche. During my internship, there were spaces for all the interns if they were good enough - this reduced backstabbing/competition between interns.

    Cons

    -"Macho" culture
    -Management are not down to earth or in touch with the general public, nor the people on the trading floor.
    -Very cut throat, like at most banks. Lots of redundancies all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go out and spend some actual time with real people outside the city, instead of taking employees on useless corporate volunteering days, which are some of the worst managed volunteering experiences I've ever taken part in.
