    I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time for 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.

    Great place to get started, grow and develop a career in Leveraged Finance.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank CIB

    Pros

    Rewarding commercial/ investment bank to work for. Employees work with a sense of ownership of the firm.

    Cons

    Promotions take longer. More responsibilities may not be accompanied by more resource allocations. Challenging working environment at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Messages from top executives sometimes do not address key concerns of middle management.

    Pros

    If you are one of the kind, you can make through all the obstacles to a niche for itself.

    Cons

    Management or boss won't care a single bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at the organization as an integral part of the group as a whole, not merely as an offshore service Centre.

    Current Employee - Director in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment. Still growth in many businesses. Could really turn around with the right regional management and some hands on leadership

    Cons

    Weak leadership and highly political. Very little diversity in several businesses. Management openly undermine new and upcoming women leaders. Needs to introduce a culture of accountability and consequence from the top down. Still in boys club mode which will continue to get them into trouble as a firm. NY is worse then other regions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity should be an important element in management. Clear mandates and a path to success is in everyone's best interest and makes for a better quality of work. HR should play a more active role to educate management about unconscious bias and introduce a environment of accountability and consequence. I would steer away talent from DB for these reasons at the present but believe the platform could be stellar with the right people at the helm in NA

    Pros

    the competitive environment makes everyone to make all effort to excel. people there in general are quite nice and professional. The dress formal is quite good to work there.

    Cons

    the organization up-down structure with local and Europe leadership is confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce the leverage and increase the capital
