  1. Great team with strong cross discipline collaboration. But it is, like many others, a broken European bank.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Deutsche Securities (japan) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team members, good global networking opportunities, and strong franchise in most asset classes.

    Cons

    As it is a broken Euro bank, there is an outsized focus on cost control--every dollar you make for the firm will disappear into a Frankfurt black hole, never to be discussed again. And, as the Japan market is seen internally as a necessary evil, the local managers are the worst sort of shortsighted 'yes men'.

    Advice to Management

    Try your hand at used car sales. Please.

    Pros

    Can take advantage of its strengths in Europe and Emerging Markets for providing advisory services to the clients.

    Cons

    Markets side is too strong and influential for investment banking actovities and very political.


  3. Over time, very japanese domestic, just following global decisions

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of intelligent people with good character outside of work ( although unfortunately get togethers outside of work were very very rare).

    Cons

    Lots of overtime. 7:30AM- 11PM Under staffed due to off shore project with minimum enhancement changes done onshore. Global decisions are absolute, changes occurs without not really put in consideration about oversea subsidaries. We were uanble to have a work/life balance. Only work, work, work. Impossible to leave work before 7PM for any private reasons.

    Advice to Management

    We need a stronger leader who will hear our voices. We complained to the MD weekly but our voices were ignored. Promises were broken and as a result 5 out of 6 people left our team.
