    Risk IT - Utter incompetence

    Current Employee - Vice President - Technology in London, England
    Current Employee - Vice President - Technology in London, England

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Deutsche Bank is a well known company and is good to have on your CV - a decent springboard
    Banking benefits are good
    A few talented people - reducing by the day
    Lots of calls from recruitment consultants.

    Cons

    Risk IT is like an unfunny game of musical chairs where only the most incompetent win.
    Long-term vision of cost reduction through mass-firings instead of innovation.
    Promotions are handed out through nepotism and sticking around over intelligence and delivery.
    Redundancies managed in a Blackadder-esque way where you are "invited to a meeting in Appold Street"
    Fractured, temporary strategy. Delivery at the end of year never matches the intent at the start.
    Department head has zero respect - deservingly so.
    The "leadership" team openly insult each other and switch allegiance with every power shift.
    Technology archaic and driven with 1990's insight.
    Batch processes and RDBMS are the order of the day with vision dating back to the leaderships hay-day of VB and Java 1.3.
    Building monolithic platforms to land-grab power is key to success.
    You cannot challenge decisions made by department head - even when they are usually wrong or out of date.
    A department head who cannot remember my name even when I have spoken to him several times.
    Lots of calls from recruitment consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fresh-blood across the board.
    There are far better people to lead than the team you have in place.
    Question what you have actually got for the amount you have spent over the past five years
    Find people who understand technology not powerpoint theorists.
    Try your best to remember the names of your staff - or provide badges like McDonalds.

    Decision making by senior management is definitely seen as a weak point across all areas in the bank

    Please hire decision makers and empower them to do so without the red tape

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    I have been at the bank for a considerable period and like the work culture and have been able to explore different roles in different areas. People are supportive and environment is collaborative

    Cons

    Recently we have seen many management changes and re organisation. Compensation has been slow moving over past few years unfortunately.

    Summer Analyst Intern - Markets

    Former Intern - Summer Analyst in London, England
    Former Intern - Summer Analyst in London, England

    I worked at Deutsche Bank as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    A big company with plenty of opportunities for moving around and finding a desk that suits you well. Good pay for an internship. The buddy and mentor systems are both useful; it's good that they're separate at Deutsche. During my internship, there were spaces for all the interns if they were good enough - this reduced backstabbing/competition between interns.

    Cons

    -"Macho" culture
    -Management are not down to earth or in touch with the general public, nor the people on the trading floor.
    -Very cut throat, like at most banks. Lots of redundancies all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go out and spend some actual time with real people outside the city, instead of taking employees on useless corporate volunteering days, which are some of the worst managed volunteering experiences I've ever taken part in.
