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

    Pros

    - Great Work Life Balance & Benefits
    - Depending on the group - Hours can be reasonable
    - Internal DB University database is a useful learning resource if utilized
    - Great Employee Networks
    - Depending on the group, most people are knowledgeable and are willing to share that knowledge

    Cons

    - Organizational structure constantly changes
    - Promotional Process could use some improvements (eliminate favortism and maybe incorporate a peer, colleague, manager influence to promotion decisions - weighted average of nays wins)
    - Pay is not comparable to the industry
    - Sr Managers do not have much influence on change or decisions regarding mid-level / lower level staffing roles
    - Near / Off Shoring hubs to NY / London Hubs relationships are strained due to uncertainty of roles and responsibilities, which are not clearly defined or constantly changed by management

    Advice to Management

    - Pick a path and stick with it.
    - Bring key staffers up to market
    - Consolidate & Trim the fat from the top, not the bottom
    - Figure out a way to better value your employees that work hard and smart for you everyday. The company is still standing because of the business strategies from the Top but are executed and kept afloat by the mid-level and junior staffers.
    - Continue to encourage work life balance - it is what is keeping a lot of employees there given these hard times.
    - Staff want to feel appreciated and rewarded for their contribution to there departments and across functions, where applicable. And they should be able to be clearly evidenced and substantiated by the teams that work closely to that staffer.
