    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There's always new work and initiatives to keep you busy; you will never be bored for long.

    Cons

    Promotion is very hard unless you are in the US or UK. There is a lot of cronyism.

    Financial governance is getting out of control, and it's becoming hard to even do simple things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure the we don't lose sight of pragmatism and efficiency when it comes to financial management, and nurture up-and-coming employees by promoting meritocracy.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    A fair place to work and management really pushed work life balance for the staff. Financially it was paying at or above market.

    Cons

    Hierachical structure of the bank in the finance department was entrenched. Often had to stay late to finish off reports and systems were not the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The One-Bank culture being pushed seemed superficial, promotion or movement to other areas of the bank was very political. If job opportunities were issued to all staff in an open manner it would improve and motivate more staff.
