    I have been working at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time

    Pros

    High salaries & comfortable chairs to sit. Nothing else is worth it. The world thinks that you are a star working in CIB.

    Cons

    Knucklehead leadership, false commitments by the company, extreme work hours, sick work culture, no team spirit. If you say 'NO' u get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your employees well and they will partner in your success. Stop treating them like animals with a badge. Take care of their life balance.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Great learning experience for interns.
    -In-depth analysis of financial markets.
    - Good exposure to different product markets.
    - Great facilities near the Hong Kong office.

    Cons

    -You can't change management's first impression. It's quite permanent. If you are having a hard time, don't struggle too hard to meet expectations. It's probably fixed.
    -No personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give clear instructions about what you want.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment. Still growth in many businesses. Could really turn around with the right regional management and some hands on leadership

    Cons

    Weak leadership and highly political. Very little diversity in several businesses. Management openly undermine new and upcoming women leaders. Needs to introduce a culture of accountability and consequence from the top down. Still in boys club mode which will continue to get them into trouble as a firm. NY is worse then other regions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity should be an important element in management. Clear mandates and a path to success is in everyone's best interest and makes for a better quality of work. HR should play a more active role to educate management about unconscious bias and introduce a environment of accountability and consequence. I would steer away talent from DB for these reasons at the present but believe the platform could be stellar with the right people at the helm in NA

    Pros

    Bonus
    Great colleagues - frankly too smart for this place

    Cons

    Mumbai office CIB is a back office - no client interaction allowed, no advancement in work role for 3-5 years, terrible work life balance with no glory

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent about no client interaction.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Money - The pay is pretty good. If you're looking for a good place to learn about finance, DB CIB is perhaps a good place with a very steep learning curve, but just for the initial days. It is the perfect back office that does (almost) everything in financial markets, so, it's good if you want a diversity of stuff to work on.

    Cons

    The HR is perhaps the worst part - They're inefficient, arrogant, unhelpful and especially treat interns and new hires like crap. The senior management also never gives the impression that they care about you or your career, only about how much movey you make. Moreover, the job that most people do is extremely trivial and huge underutilization of talent. Most the job is just to assist and verify the work onshore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do start caring about your own people. I know a ton of people who refused to join you just because they knew they'd never be cared for.

    Pros

    If you are one of the kind, you can make through all the obstacles to a niche for itself.

    Cons

    Management or boss won't care a single bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at the organization as an integral part of the group as a whole, not merely as an offshore service Centre.
