    Pros

    If you are wanting to stretch and grow and realize your potential, DB is an excellent platform to go after it. Salary. Pension. Bonus. Stock Options and value for balance is important.

    Cons

    I have not seen cons. I am an eternal optimist and want the chance to be all I can become. DB is an excellent company.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and 401k Plan and flexible working environment for working moms. Great People to work with and good IT system support.

    Cons

    The opportunity for advancement was not always readily available. Busy working environment doesn't always allow for additional education and training .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more job specific training and cross training so account managers don't feel so isolated. Provide more training materials for reference purposes rather than just have minimal job specific training.
