I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great team atmosphere and focus on worklife balance.
Serious focus on agile and doing projects right.
Lots of OSS in use.
Challenging projects with notable impacts.

Cons

Antiquated technology (i.e. Win XP, IE)
Bureaucracy and resources are the hardest part of any IT project.
Politics of higher ups often subverts otherwise logical implementations, dilating project rollouts.

Advice to Management

Further reduce bonus pay tied to "getting it out" by the end of the year. Focus instead on defect rates and production lifecycles as these are more critical and will tie management's decisions to proper SDLC.
Be more stable at the top. We've seen so many heads come and go it is dizzying.
