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

    Pros

    The bank cares for its employees, which can be seen by the policies implemented for employee benefit. The environment is chilled out and you arnt scorned for asking any obvious questions. Transport facility saves travel stress and conveyance. Salary is above average compared to local competitors.

    Cons

    The company being top heavy, one needs to have patience to get promotions. 2 years is average tenure after which you get promoted.
    Less visibility of how your work helps the company's top line or bottom line , thus affecting your motivation to work.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internal transfers to keep employees involved and help them gain diverse skills

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time

    Pros

    The company has a ton of opportunities to get involved in employee resource groups (think "clubs", or common interest groups), promotes equality in every aspect, and communication is pretty good from the top down.

    Cons

    It can be tough for internal transfers, raises, or promotions. There is a still a bit of that old school, "good ol' boy", days of Wall Street yore mentality that makes it even tougher for women and/or minorities to feel appreciated, equal, or valued. With that being said, I do believe the company is TRYING to make it better and becoming more progressive.

    Advice to Management

    Be your employee's champions - promote them when they deserve it (not just if they ask), recognize your dedicated employees, and when you know there's an opportunity for them elsewhere in the bank that would help progress their career, champion for them - the goal should be to keep good employees at the bank and helping them grow. Holding them as long as you can on one team without any growth or new challenges will make them feel undervalued, and the bank will lose those assets.

    Pros

    Vacation and area is nice. Weather in NC is good all year round but real hot in summer. Nothing else to say.

    Cons

    Cary Management, Cary Management
    It's about whose butt you can kiss and not about actual work ethic. Hiring practices and location strategy is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Gut the people at the D level with the exception of a few.

    Work life balance is good, you can work from home when it is required. Support is there for training ad well.

    Pros

    Nothing really. You shouldn't work there unless you're desperate. Location not great either. Women are not taken seriously. One off managers can be good.

    Cons

    Cost cutting. Everything is very slow and bureaucratic. Women are not treated as leaders. While some managers are good, most are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Create a proper culture.
