    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Eat what you kill environment and if you play your cards correctly you can climb the ranks quicker than other sell side shops

    Cons

    Tons of kissing up to the right people despite how good you are...nothing matters unless you cozy up to the right people. Some of the smartest people in the group never get promoted or paid since they can't play politics....

    Advice to Management

    Show some sponsorship toward the younger people on the desk and maybe they will stop leaving for competitors.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank (Less than a year)

    Pros

    DB is a great environment, my colleagues are great people and the work space does not feel like a work place. We work but we work as if we are a unit. No discrimination, no sides being chosen and best of all everyone is always ready to help anyone in need.

    Cons

    My only downside of working at DB is my commute as the office i work out of is in New Jersey

    Pros

    Great employees who were really helpful and good management.

    Cons

    the loan reviewer position is very boring and repetitive. I really have nothing bad to say about the company, but only the position. Little career opportunities to move up.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, clubs, self development classes and online library.

    Cons

    No real difference to make at the bottom. Entry level is mind numbing and you can't excel your way up, there's timelines and proper ways. I felt underutilized and bored.


  11. Good deal flow but very intense

    Pros

    Good group of guys Senior bankers are pretty good in bringing in deals They have a solid reputation on the street

    Cons

    The work was very intense. The group deifnitely needed more staffing as every analyst was working on multiple deals at every time. Therefore, hours were not good but you do learn a ton.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing needs to be increased. This will really help make the analysts more effective in their jobs. Overall, the team is very solid and brings in great business.
