Work for life in DB IT - quite possibly

IT Manager (Former Employee)
London, England

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

ProsGood comp, unlimited growth opportunities for those who are ready to take them, accessible learning and development, very large

ConsBureaucratic, everything is slow, often unclear or messy org structure, sometimes team work is inefficient

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the basics instead of changing the senior management structures. Help people on the ground do their daily job more efficiently by removing impediments. You will be amazed by how much more efficiency you can gain from the same team.
