    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

    Type of work varies and career depends a lot on the desk you work for. Senior management bothers much about compliance these days.

    Cons

    Switching roles isn't straightforward. Processes are slow and time consuming. Working hard and delivering results may get unnoticed unless you highlight them.
