    I worked at Deutsche Bank (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in Capital Market team (fixed income sales and trading) in Asia. DB has a big network and a huge business operation in the world. You get to see many trades and deals not available from other banks.

    Cons

    Very political place. In general, compensation is not higher than other top tier banks. The seniors push their work to juniors and get all credits

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This place was is a good starter for your career, because you learn to do everything, since that is the only way work gets completed. Good vacation time and benefits.

    Cons

    The management here is the worst. I've had good managers in the beginning, but as time went by there was a strong lack of knowledge from the management. Careless decision making, which puts the bank at great risk.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your senior management (VP/Directors) and use the evaluation of their direct reports to see how they are actually "managing". The bank is cutting the workers who are actually doing the work, but not the dead weight that is apparent in the management. Also, experienced gender discrimination when it came to promotion time. The bank is good bank, you just have really terrible management.
