    Pros

    Besides a competitive salary and good benefits, I liked working at Deutsche because I got to expand my knowledge.

    Also, as a woman, I like that they took an active role in trying to improve women's experiences in the workplace. The annual Women on Wall Street (WOWS) conference was great, not only for information, but for networking as well.

    Cons

    Departments can become very "clique-ish", which can have an impact on your career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    When a senior manager is wrong in dealing with a subordinate, acknowledge and try to resolve it instead of sweeping it under the rug. That only breeds discontent and resentment in the wronged party.

  2. High paced intense work place.

    Pros

    There isnever a dull moment. From the opening bell to the end of day the work is non-stop and the challenges are different in complexity and need for resolution. Exciting place to work if you want to end the day saying where did the time go ?

    Cons

    Sometimes the Bureuacracy can be a challenge to getting things done in a timely manner. Take a while to learn how to navigate the system.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen the boots on the ground to stream line processes and procedures. Many of the processes are excellent but lean towards being cumbersome.

    Pros

    Can't speak for all departments but, in IT my colleagues are talented, responsible and industrious, the work atmosphere positive and collegial, and the pay competitive.

    Cons

    No more than at any large corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Desktops are excessively locked down; no on-site support. Non-developers can't obtain needed utilities and/or update their software (like Acrobat!) without opening a ticket. Situation is expected to deteriorate further with planned administrative changes.
