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

Pros

Smart coworkers who are willing to work hard. I met some longstanding friends from those years in investment banking, and continue to call on those networks today.

Cons

A bank is a bank, and Deutsche Bank has no real defining characteristics. The job you do there will be exactly the same as the job you do anywhere -- and they don't do much to try to retain the best and most loyal talent.

    Great on a resume, but major restructuring due to cost cutting measures

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great resume experience, ability to run projects, multi-functional cross team work, great benefits packages

    Cons

    Very little respect or sympathy for work-life balance. Average work day is 9-11 hours, depending on volume, market circumstances, and time of the year. They will pay you less than industry standard if you're not an AVP or higher. Once you advance to a Senior Analyst role, there is little room for movement as there are not often positions opened above you. Can be difficult to move laterally to another department for a new opportunity - more than once during my time there, the departments underwent a hiring freeze for several months or more and that meant you couldn't move anywhere. VERY fast paced environment - this is not a job where you will have time to deal with many personal matters during the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff to help deal with the volumes that you know are coming with the Clearing Business resulting from Dodd-Frank. Respect that not everyone on staff is comfortable with working 11 hours every day and may actually have obligations outside of work.
