    Pros

    - Good place to learn new things. - Global working environment. - Most of the people are nice and helpful.

    Cons

    - Lack of advancement opportunities- Managers are only interested in meeting their own KPI' s and not interested in promoting career advancement of their team members. Performance appraisals are just a formality. -Don't spend much on training to upgrade the skills of the current staff. -Compensation has been flat.

    Advice to Management

    Hire 'Leaders' instead of 'Managers' and make them accountable. Provide employees an opportunity to ask questions to senior management by having regular town halls.

    Pros

    DB is based in London Wall, so that is a better location for some, than canary wharf. You may do well in DB if you are a politician.

    Cons

    Bonus system is not merit based, rather based on who you know. When I was there, I travelled to Frankfurt and did not get reimbursed travel expenses (flights, hotel) which proved expensive for me. When you want to move up, you have to move on, unless you are in with the right crowd. All in all, a rather unfriendly, officious and political place where you have to watch your back at all times. I was in IT, maybe it's ok if you are a trader.

    Advice to Management

    treating staff with respect costs nothing and creates loyalty to the company. To do that you have to know your staff, and reward based on merit.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant group of people, strong culture and diversity. Mostly everyone had an mba, phD, licenses. Lots of intellectual capital there. 20 vacation days. Small relocation bonus. Some opportunity for working remotely.

    Cons

    What good are all those days if you can never take them? They promise 20% bonuses to entice you to relocate there, since there is next to NO talent in Jacksonville. Then you get a 3% bonus. Don't fall for it. Disorganized management at the upper levels. No opportunity for advancement. Bosses are indifferent to your efforts. No adequate direction in how to do your job so your efforts are wasted when you do your job and bosses make you start all over due to a new rule. Lots of politics and some annoyingly nosy team members. LOTS of turnover be it doesn't take long for the smarter people to realize morale sucks and leave.

    Advice to Management

    Top level down reorganization would be a good idea. Middle managers need to help their people advance, not encourage stagnation. Some directors are NOT qualified to be directors.
