    Wannabe yuppee's willing to step on each other's toes to get a 20p/hour pay rise. Salary is not great.

    ProsEasy to get in and grab some Tier 1 experience for your CV.

    ConsIt's a hard graft and too easy to get into politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMainly headless chickens. The ones who are good normally don't last due to deep politics.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Safe job

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Birmingham, England (UK)

    ProsIf you're after stability, Db will give that to you.
    Also great location for family - if you want to get away from London

    ConsAs there isn't much other investment banking companies in Birmingham you will find it hard to negotiate salaries etc and will probably have to stay out unless you're willing to move location.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore opportunities for loyal employees are needed...

    ProsNo pros at all, rubbish bank to work for.

    ConsA big bank from outside, Rotting inside. Bullies, never appreciate hardworks, love bullshitters. No clear career development, concentrate on rubbish internal campaigns, treat staff as a number.London control and treat Birmingham staff like slaves

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep an eye on middle management in Birmingham. Senior management in London

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
