    Pros

    Mostly nice, smart people. great on-site cafeteria. great perks include free admission to a lot of NYC museums and galleries through DB sponsorship of culture.

    Cons

    i'm guessing that it's all about cost savings; IT support is very spotty. from time to time you get someone who actually knows what they're doing. most of the time one gets the impression of a person reading from a script who may not be able to find the on/off switch without instructions; nice people, but totally not up to the job. makes for frustration when a (sometimes) minor tech issue takes weeks to resolve.

    Advice to Management

    again on the cost saving thing; seems that departments are always being moved around within the building. this disrupts work and must cost a lot. not to mention that so often one of the internet jacks doesn't work, or the phone doesn't work, etc,

    Pros

    Global bank, good benefits, relaxed atmosphere, opportunities for career development, job security, great people, some opportunity for mobility

    Cons

    It is difficult to get promoted or move to a different area of the bank.

    Advice to Management

    The promotion cycle is not ideal. Talented people leave the bank because of lack of motivation. Greater focus on talent development

    Pros

    Very intelligent and cooperative coworkers, more laid back atmosphere than the location on Wall St. Management is in general good at directing day to day activities.

    Cons

    The Jax office is turning into an analyst churn shop. They are underpaying 2-3yr analysts and first year associates big time. In fact, brand new interns are making more on an adjusted basis than 3rd year analysts due to the company moving interns to the new higher pay scale while leaving existing employees on the older, lower scale.

    Advice to Management

    The pay is the most blatant issue for the Jax office. There's also the fact that communication and travel between Jax and NY can often be shoddy and advancement opportunities seem fairly limited.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with good perks and benefits. Working with Deutsche, you learn a great deal from a diverse group of people.

    Cons

    I don't really have a negative but moving certain jobs overseas creates an employment gap in the United States.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your outstanding and performing employees, keep an eye of the management team and ensure they are performing their duties appropriately.
