    Pros

    The best reason to work in DB was the culture of teamwork. Its a high pressure industry - but the fact that you have your colleagues and manager looking out for you makes it a great environment. Some of the brightest minds in the industry are in this place

    Cons

    Same as other IB's - sometimes too much focus on the tactical lets the strategic goals slip away and then there is a last minute rush.

    Advice to Management

    Continue Investing in Strategic Goals.

    Pros

    It is an awesome place to work. There is a lot of diversity in terms of the kind of roles you can practice.

    Cons

    There are not too many drawbacks that are there. Work-life balance would vary depending on the role and geography you are working for.

    Pros

    Rewarding commercial/ investment bank to work for. Employees work with a sense of ownership of the firm.

    Cons

    Promotions take longer. More responsibilities may not be accompanied by more resource allocations. Challenging working environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Messages from top executives sometimes do not address key concerns of middle management.

    Pros

    Work life balance, office culture are all good. People are good. Lot of learining opportunities involved.

    Cons

    Salary hike should be based on performance appraisal, also incentives should be given based on how critical client is the employee handling.

    More transparency should be brought in to judge all these factors.

    Advice to Management

    Should not be more objective.

    Pros

    Quality and intelligence of people
    Expertise in wide range of products make it easier to pitch clients
    Global reach to be able to answer any question
    Powerful brand name

    Cons

    Highly competitive. Company culture is to let people step on others' mandates in order to see who can do best. Of course you are not made aware that someone is trying to do your own job

    Advice to Management

    More respect to employees and clients would benefit. The competitive culture exhausts staff, and in the end those who are able to climb to the top, however smart and outstanding, are those who do not care about the wider ecosystem.

  11. Great place to start your career as an engineer.

    Pros

    Very smart people to work with, interesting projects (at least if you're an engineer) and a nice office space. It's a great place if you're a junior engineer and want to start you career. You'll learn all the essentials that help you to deliver large-scale and complex IT solutions. Very cool (local) senior management.

    Cons

    No career opportunities for senior engineers. You either become a manager or have look for opportunities outside of the company. Definitely too much bureaucracy and a lot of cost-cutting and travel freezes over the last years.
