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

    Pros

    Good people with a can do approach despite the cons. Should you choose a job, choose wisely and ask the difficult questions before diving in.

    Cons

    Lack of coordination, very siloed organisation, processes are lacking and consistency suffers as a result. Could be so impressive...but lacking true leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate and be leaders

    Pros

    Worked in IT as project manager. Work is relatively not stressful and allow for good work life balance.

    Work may not be too challenging and becomes boring after a year or two. Not much career progression especially in the middle to back office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more structured global mobility for employees who want to move into other areas.
