    Pros

    Generally friendly people, open culture. Most staff are highly educated and smart people.

    Cons

    Very strong silo culture in the bank, hard to move across to different business divisions. Management is not always honest and will underpay or not promote if employees do not expressly ask for it.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to your employees, try harder to retain your talented employees. Clean up the most incompetent parts of the bank which are holding DB back from true greatness: Technology and HR.
