    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Brand recognition (especially in Europe and Asia, not so much in the US recently because of the recent negative headlines)
    -People are pretty nice compared to other IB's in SF; not as many egos
    -Location (beats working in the South Bay)
    -Very strong semiconductor practice (other verticals, not so much)

    Cons

    Aside from the typical cons of working in IB as a junior banker (such as long, unpredictable hours):
    -Deal flow was lacking; possibly due to a lot of negative headlines in 2016-2017
    -Infrastructure/technology is laughable. No such thing as collaborative software (i.e. Google docs)

    Advice to Management

    There have been a lot of cultural overhauls to DB (and other top banks) but still not a great place to work for junior staff. The handling of bonuses for VP's in 2016 dealt a big blow to the morale for junior staff.
