    Pros

    Quality and intelligence of people
    Expertise in wide range of products make it easier to pitch clients
    Global reach to be able to answer any question
    Powerful brand name

    Cons

    Highly competitive. Company culture is to let people step on others' mandates in order to see who can do best. Of course you are not made aware that someone is trying to do your own job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More respect to employees and clients would benefit. The competitive culture exhausts staff, and in the end those who are able to climb to the top, however smart and outstanding, are those who do not care about the wider ecosystem.

    Former Employee - Quantitative Strategist in London, England

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

    Pros

    A truly entrepreneurial organisation with a "can do" work ethic and solid European culture. When you have good idea that should make money you should get all the support you need to get it done.

    Cons

    Excessively competitive organisation with multiple silos leading to scary political infighting. Different groups pursue the same goals in competition with the adage that "winner takes all". Co-heads are often appointed to encourage management struggles with one victor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down the silos and encourage teamworking.

    Pros

    Work life balance, office culture are all good. People are good. Lot of learining opportunities involved.

    Cons

    Salary hike should be based on performance appraisal, also incentives should be given based on how critical client is the employee handling.

    More transparency should be brought in to judge all these factors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not be more objective.
