I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Global company with good benefits.

Cons

Very political, do not promote within, old technology, most people I know that work there would rather be someone else, but I doubt anywhere else is different.

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

    Pros

    Smart engineering staff
    High salaries
    Large bonus pay

    Cons

    Hours are frankly abusive
    Chaotic - frequent total reorgs mean you wrong be working with the team you joined within a year
    Most projects are uninteresting and grueling slogs
    Politics are by far the rule of the day and hinder nearly all efforts
    Local management is fixated on "alpha," a vague term borrowed from banking with little basis in reality for the center

    Advice to Management

    Stop going through the motions and commit to the center's started goals. Stop tolerating middle management empire building and infighting. Stop protecting managers who are demonstrably ineffective.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many of the co-workers were great to work with.

    Cons

    First of all, the management there is very bad. Most of them don't have a clue how to manage software and they move up the ladder based on connections instead of competence. They have some big holes in their software process which tends to burn developers out or frustrate them beyond repair. The UK office basically runs the show so the US site feels they don't have much autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Quit bringing in crappy management to the site. There has to be a better pool locally that can fill those roles much better, unless they are staying away. They need to attract better projects to the site instead of turning themselves into a major league dumping ground for the entire global company.
