    Pros

    Challenging, opportunities, good balance to work, exposure to multiple areas and tiers of management.

    Cons

    Outsourcing and offshoring of teams and split globally makes it challenging to work on projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline operating model, less focus on cost and more on quality.

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

    Pros

    The graduate program is very thorough and offers varied job rotations and qualification opportunities. Also being a global investment bank means there are options to move abroad internally and are often encouraged by senior management.

    Cons

    Being a large bank can mean that any change initiatives being undertaken can be very slow and sometimes ineffective which can damage employee morale with large sums of money being wasted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement change at a smaller level as opposed to trying to change the entire bank at once.

    Pros

    A reasonable place to work with some great people.

    Cons

    Management. There are far too many people at director level and above. What they need to do is cull the majority and actually get in some people who can do the work and improve things. Project costs spiral out of control because of the management overheads and management interference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk away. Do your bit and then let others get on with the work.

    Pros

    Good, competitive pay and great benefits. Decent career progression if you work hard and actively seek it. Given a lot of responsibility and autonomy from day one.

    Cons

    Management structures change seemingly daily with no real purpose, clarity, focus, or ultimate goal laid out before the changes are made. As such the work seems aimless and the intentions of the reorgs are 'retro-fitted' to meet personal agendas.

    Pros

    You can take a way a lot of good things networking with people around you.

    Cons

    Management has little incentive in making you grow in the company or in trying to lead and motivate you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be looking more after its own employees instead of working under the model" I don't need to talk to you unless I hear there is a problem".
