    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.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people to work with, interesting projects (at least if you're an engineer) and a nice office space. It's a great place if you're a junior engineer and want to start you career. You'll learn all the essentials that help you to deliver large-scale and complex IT solutions. Very cool (local) senior management.

    Cons

    No career opportunities for senior engineers. You either become a manager or have look for opportunities outside of the company. Definitely too much bureaucracy and a lot of cost-cutting and travel freezes over the last years.

    Pros

    It is an awesome place to work. There is a lot of diversity in terms of the kind of roles you can practice.

    Cons

    There are not too many drawbacks that are there. Work-life balance would vary depending on the role and geography you are working for.
