I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good work/life balance, rarely worked late or from home, opportunities to interact with senior investment professionals

Cons

Fear-based culture, peers are afraid to point out errors or recommend process improvements, hard work is not rewarded, environment is too casual for those with a drive to succeed, co-workers strove to do as little work as possible and take short-cuts which was what our manager wanted as well. Lack of communication and apathy led to many errors. Not rewarding career-wise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My manager was afraid of his manager, there was little opportunity to change ineffective policies or suggest changes. I think subordinates should be allowed to blindly review their manager and peers.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People for the most part were friendly and nice

    Cons

    Management is all old school and cannot be trusted. They need a major reorg.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about the people, by providing support which does not exist at this firm. The large turnover rate at this firm is so alrming and management does not care, but to keep the bottom line low. You also do not pay competively for the industry.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice people who are smart and work hard, care about the clients. Very paternalistic in the best way- great benefits, nice to employees in a crisis

    Cons

    Management changes regularly, frequently putting people in charge who don't understand the business they're now supposed to run

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select senior management from the division or, at the very least, hire from that industry rather than bring in bankers to learn the specific business
