    I have been working at Deutsche Bank (Less than a year)

    Pros

    DB is a great environment, my colleagues are great people and the work space does not feel like a work place. We work but we work as if we are a unit. No discrimination, no sides being chosen and best of all everyone is always ready to help anyone in need.

    Cons

    My only downside of working at DB is my commute as the office i work out of is in New Jersey

    Pros

    Great employees who were really helpful and good management.

    Cons

    the loan reviewer position is very boring and repetitive. I really have nothing bad to say about the company, but only the position. Little career opportunities to move up.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people, interesting work, great internal transfer opportunities. Competitive pay and ability to work from home depending on role. Big bank with many different roles and lots of chaos to sink your teeth into and fix.

    Cons

    Lots of chaos. Outdated technology and policies. Cut-throat at senior levels and promotion process is painful. Less accountability and hard to get decisions made. The one thing constant is change! Salary is hard to get increased without a promotion anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Working from home is being minimized now, but it is the future and a way to save building costs. Consider allowing more of this again!
