    Internal campaigns are embarrassing Diversity is good if senior managers understand it Senior managers are poor role models Senior managers are mostly political Talented hard working Employees should be valued higher than the social worker who attends events

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent fellow staff; very well positioned site in the centre of Birmingham; good social life associated with work and the site managers made an effort to maintain the energy levels of the staff

    Cons

    Treated too much like an external service provider to London by some of the senior managers in the bank, and not like part of the same company. Too many senior managers in DB looking to blame others for major projects not being delivered rather than look for solutions.

    Advice to Management

    None for Birmingham Management; but London Managers could learn to work more collaboratively with the very talented staff they have in Birmingham.
