    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and decent pay for most people

    Cons

    Upper management has set the tone and that is to intimidate and punish people who do not fully meet their standards. VP's normally do not speak with their subjects below them and instead leave that up to their mini bosses under them to do the dirty work. All this leads to fear and paranoia throughout the establishment where the only strategy is to constantly code code code regardless of how mundane and unsatisfactory the task is. In my team the upper echelon of the team are almost all white, who are often heard making snooty remarks of the worker bees mostly Indians on their H1B visas.

    Advice to Management

    When you create an environment where all members of the organization are treated equally, all the way down to the little guy magical things start to happen, instead of wasting energy worrying about the toxic work environment, their productivity goes up, when people feel that the people working with you have your best interests at heart instead of trying to stab you in the back and take your credit you start bonding and working as a well organized highly productive team.

    The problem is not the people it's the leadership, you need to fix that first before you start on anything else.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global bank. All or most banking products. German powerhouse. Big in Europe. Relatively big in Americas. New leadership, given the large scale drop over the years, there is room for growth.

    Cons

    Tough to get anything done. Too political, no vision, hard to deliver strategic solutions. Problems are one too many to solve overnight.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate analysis paralysis, eliminate non decision making etc...

    Pros

    Vacation, co workers are mainly good people and try to do the right thing. Nothing else to say. Lots is BS

    Cons

    See the TITLE: does anyone read these and how people both working there and have left are treated. The Politics is ridiculous and people at the Director level do nothing more than try to impress the management while the VP (some) do most of the work. Have some real skip level meeting and listen.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in Cary and listen to the people doing the work.
