Good place to learn the investment banking industry, bad place for a career.

Pros

Deutsche Bank allowed me to get a good start in finance after my MBA program. I really liked my peers and thought the culture was a bit more laid back than some of the competing investment banks.

Cons

Senior bankers care very little about subordinate's time and are often focused only on their own career progression. As with all investement banks, the work life balance is downright horrible.

    Pros

    Nice vacation package
    Nice people
    Short commute and I love the weather in Florida

    Cons

    "Strategy" changes every 3-6 months so every time you start to make progress they make you change. Very little investment in IT, and it's even worse since the last earnings report!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage client expectations, don't overload people to the point where they are looking to leave at the first opportunity.
