What are co-workers like at Deutsche Bahn?

Pros

The colleagues I worked with were very professional and structured. So I was able to learn a lot from them. Most of the projects within Deutsche Bahn are very interesting (also a lot of digital projects)

Cons

Seemed to be a typical, stiff german corporation with a lot of bureaucracy and where processes take a long time. I was interested in their digital practice and aimed to come on a digital project. However, as an intern you do not really have a choice. So I ended up on another project which I also did enjoy though.

The colleagues I worked with were very professional and structured.
