    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    DB has a great graduate training program, with very structured training material and classes with rotations on various desks and great people who manage the whole program. Lots of smart and very capable people working in the bank.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are some limitations on the IT side of things in terms of infrastructure investment and sometimes there appears to be a lot of internal competitions between people for business etc - but that may be expected of any bank

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think having more personal growth would be very beneficial with courses for personal training, development and growth; management programs etc;

    I worked at Deutsche Bank as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    (Note: This is the the investment banking division, called Corporate Finance) Good remuneration and benefits - dinners are subsidised and taxi rides home after 11 pm are free. Working with other divisions is quick and efficient as there are well-established protocols for cmopleting work quickly.

    Cons

    Long hours - but that's to be expected in any investment banking job, especially in Hong Kong.
