Challenging environment to deliver change, unless regulatory drivers for your project, which are currently the priority.

Project Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Deutsche Bank as a contractor for more than a year

ProsDirect access to senior managers when needed, a huge number of long-serving staff that know great amounts of information, a board-level desire to improve the corporate culture for the better.

ConsHigh turnover in IT, legacy systems and processes that slow delivery down, to at times a standstill. A huge number of "big four" and other consultants.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Assistant Vice President (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsWork/life balance, remuneration, culture, benefits.

ConsIf you deal with front office this can impact on your work life balance and expose you to the cut throat, P&L oriented culture they have.

Dump. Some great people let down by poor top down management. Work elsewhere if you can.

Software Developer (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsSalary is okay, but other banks pay more
Canteen okay
Some great benefits such as share options which are used to lure you in.

ConsHR are a miserable and can be aggressive. I got to see this because I asked for a few improvements which virtually all other banks had (multi-faith rooms etc)
Good staff and line manager can be found but ruined by everything else.
Poor facilities, gym overcrowded (if you can get a place in the first place)

Bureaucratic, endless restructuring within the IT organisation

Assistant Vice President (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere are some aspiring people on the business side

ConsNo leadership and roadmap on the IT side in the past 5 years, senior managers rather play political games to protect themself than contributing real value to the business.

Promotion does not depend on performance and contribution.
High performer got pissed off every year.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou pay peanuts, you got monkeys

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
