I worked at Deutsche Bank

Pros

As a bulge bracket bank with a truly global scope, Deutsche Bank is able to compete for high-profile investment banking transactions. The firm is extremely generous with its holiday/compensation packages.

Cons

Lack of clarity, on the part of senior management, on the firm's strategy. Promotion guidelines seemed rather arbitrary, and crystallized as a source of discontent amongst employees.

    Pros

    the pay is great
    sometimes the prestige of the name is a good thing, although personally that doesn't give me any satisfaction

    Cons

    they have been restructuring some business lines and there is very poor communication from senior management to employees about the changes and how they will be affected.

    people are generally unfriendly and scheming to do anything they could to advance themselves. i guess this is a given for ibanking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate, communicate and communicate! employees want to know what's going on at the top, especially when it will affect their work content and colleagues.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    more conservative than American banks, so less likely it will go bankrupt.
    Management is solid,
    benefit is ok as well

    Cons

    pay is not top, but is ok considering it's a European bank,
    very very hard to move inside the bank, i.e. change functions
    culture is not very exciting, hey, it's German

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aggressive in terms of expanding business and finding opportunities, also be aggressive of retaining best talents, make certain restrictions loose, so that people can be freed to create value.
