    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, co-workers, vacation, learned a lot

    Cons

    No work life balance could never plan anything. Bad middle manager's. Need to invest in IT, too often when there was a problem it would take hours to get it corrected because there were not enough IT people or people who knew how to fix the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the people who actually do the day to day jobs so you could understand what is really going on. Not always smart to look at the bottom line.

    Pros

    Competitive pay on wall street and great experience to have under your belt for you to hop to other companies for more growth.

    Cons

    Investment banking is not as profitable as before the crash of 2008 so bonuses aren't as good as the good old days. The work you do is also very dry.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You make a lot of money, plain and simple. If you get a rush from powerpoint decks, then it is the right job. You will not truly contribute until at least 4 years experience.

    Cons

    Awful work hours and completely unpredictable when it comes to weekend plans or really any plans at all.

    Advice to Management

    Treat you subordinates how you would want to be treated
