    Pros

    Variety of projects and technologies to get involved in.
    Excellent benefits.
    Work/Life balance is really valuable.

    Cons

    Promotion appears to be based on gender diversification targets and political correctness, rather than ability. This is a shame because is demeans the achievements of those that fit this category and have been promoted on merit.
    Salary reviews are non-exitent.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people on ability, rather than ticking a HR diversification box.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It depends on the team.
    If you're lucky enough to be in the right team, it can make all the difference.
    Anyway, Db provides a lot of in-house tools to keep learning with, however it is up to reach individual to make use of it.

    Front office is competitive, but where is this not true.

    Cons

    The technology stack is not the most up to date, but then it makes sense to pride stability over experimentation.
    However, this is changing, as Db is becoming more adventurous.

    Advice to Management

    Deb's best years are ahead. Keep going.
