    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Travel opportunities for this role were great - very professional team to work with. Learned many new skills and had opportunity to work with some really brilliant colleagues. Started as a maternity cover which resulted in a permanent hire.

    Cons

    Long hours however the team I worked with were very cohesive and supportive. Went through a technical upgrade in the candidate management system which made the first year a bit tricky.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing specific - I thought teams were well led and we had a very influential and charismatic leader. Felt I was given plenty of opportunity to succeed.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Excellent prospects for long-term contractors/consultancy staff, always a budget available at the expense of permanent staff.

    Cons

    - Discrimination if you are permanent with the bank (Salary and Career Opportunities in-existent, even internally); - Offshore staff are not SMEs, shocking level of product ignorance in India; need to be constantly spoon-fed; - Directors moved around even when useless, politics is rife.

    Advice to Management

    None, they could not care less.

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

    Pros

    Location is great. A lot to do in Jacksonville and cost of living is cheap compared to traditional investment banking city's

    Cons

    Long hours. Not enough bonus. Need to recognize junior level employees and compensate better.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to invest in junior level bankers. Career development is slow and exit options can be slim coming from Jacksonville Fl
