OK place to work

Investment Banking Senior (Former Employee)
London, England

I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBig global bank; presence with clients is good; some good opportunities available; high aspirations

ConsHighly political; Need to be connected to the right people or left behind (ie inconsistent application of performance expectations); Suffers from lack of confidence in own grown people and always seems to look outside instead of growing from within; very poor track record supporting women in front office positions

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Genuinely entrepreneurial, definitely political

Quantitative Strategist (Former Employee)
London, England

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

ProsA 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.

ConsExcessively 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 Senior ManagementBreak down the silos and encourage teamworking.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

False promises

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mumbai (India)

I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time for more than a year

ProsBonus
Great colleagues - frankly too smart for this place

ConsMumbai office CIB is a back office - no client interaction allowed, no advancement in work role for 3-5 years, terrible work life balance with no glory

Advice to Senior ManagementBe transparent about no client interaction.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Overall, good place to work on Wall Street

Vice President (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time

Pros- Highly entrepreneurial
- Challenging/interesting work
- Good salary and benefits

Cons- Highly political environment: pick mentor(s) who are well-regarded and know their way around the organization
- Highly bureaucratic environment: need to go through a lot of hoops to get things done/approved; only gotten worse with onset of external regulatory forces (a lot tougher to get things done)
- Sharp elbows among colleagues: at the end of the day, everyone is out for themselves and wanting to maximize their comp at year-end.
(I should note that the above all all pretty common to most, if not all, investment banks)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
