    Pros

    If you are wanting to stretch and grow and realize your potential, DB is an excellent platform to go after it. Salary. Pension. Bonus. Stock Options and value for balance is important.

    Cons

    I have not seen cons. I am an eternal optimist and want the chance to be all I can become. DB is an excellent company.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is descent and the company has documentation for some of its processes.

    Cons

    Just like any big bank, the expectation of staying late even when you have nothing to do is necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a plan and stick to it. Instead of changing everything on a daily basis.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Cary, NC

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits package is good. People are great.

    Cons

    We originally joined to build a 'software company' which was what the CIO told us we would be. A reorganization in 2013 killed that and now we are a low cost maintenance factory. The good leaders who cared have left this year and the middle managers that remain are mostly concerned with politics and empire building. Local staff have no authority. Most control is from London or New York. Work is mostly maintenance or *legacy* development. This place used to be interesting but it isn't any more. Most people I know are looking for another job, but stay because the pay is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some interest in the center. Give people in Cary responsibility as was originally planned and promised.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It was a paid internship which was nice. The people are very friendly and helpful. It was a good resume builder

    Cons

    The opportunity to move up was slightly limited. The actual work itself was not very challenging and kind of mundane.
