Decent place to work if you can cope with the politics. This place is about who you know, not what you know.

I worked at Deutsche Bank

Pros

Decent pay, great offices, relaxed atmosphere most of the time, but hard working and professional

Cons

the internal politics, the lack of senior managers admitting mistakes, and the gap in pay and promotion to a lot of people who deserve it to the people who tell the bosses they look great every day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't listen to the guy trying to butter you up for a big bonus. There are a lot of people in this place doing a great job making their managers look good and getting pain nothing.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    Global brand name, huge history, world wide presence, decent compensation. The bank is place with peers who have amazing knowledge. The bank is among the best in the business and has been a leader in investment banking.

    Cons

    Very low communication at the lower level. Back office & support functions do not get enough visibility in terms of promotions and career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards greater transparency in providing information to lower grade employees. Work more towards employee satisfaction. Senior most management needs to by pass middle level people and listen to what the lower level wants.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    Its a tech friendly place to work in. There are a lot of good people, who are easily approachable and friendly, usually supportive of employees and allows you a good balance of work and life.

    Cons

    lack of established processess, information sharing especially from management side is lacking, you only get told at the last minute. Sutck to some pre concieved ideas even though there is clear signs that it is not working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people working on the ground and don't make too frequent changes on the roadmap. Accept when things are not working.

    No opinion of CEO
