Pros

This organization is dedicated to leveraging superior technical talent to build next-generation applications for the bank. They are willing to take the time to make the right design decisions and take the longer view of building applications across silos to decrease long-term costs.

Cons

Navigating the bureaucracy to get anything done, especially as it relates to even the simplest modifications to production systems is very painful. Organizational politics and power grabs are a bit ruthless for my taste.

Advice to Management

Watch the empire builders and work at streamlining the production deployment process. There are a lot of great technologies being used, but not often a clear path as to how to use them in your environment. Wikis exist, but they are too spread out to be of much use. This needs to be integrated into the company's internal social networking tool.

    Pros

    The people of DB are friendly and hard working

    Cons

    The infrastructure of DB is very poor. The management has tried to reduce cost by offshoring the jobs or nearshoring the job to low cost locations. Good performers are not rewarded adequately or motivated. If you stay in the bank for a long time, the pay would be below average as the increase is minimal year over year regardless of the performance.

  2. The more you are able to sacrifice your personal happiness and balance, the more you will earn in this company / job

    Pros

    Good experience, great name to have on resume

    Cons

    The days of investment banking is gone; company is making less and less money despite making it's employees work the same or more. The industry itself is declining

    Advice to Management

    Remove the inefficient way of making so called "pitchbooks"; provide employees with decent computer so that it does not crash in the middle of the night; and basically stop ripping clients off by giving wrong advice
