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

    Pros

    Very compfortable place to work. If you are smart or if you are stupid, if you are fast or slow-thinker - there is a lot of different tasks in DB, suitable for any employee. You can follow the tasks delegated to you. Or you can find new opportunities by your own and make them your project. Crazy mix of heavy bureaucracy and edge-tech startups.

    Cons

    a) If you will stuck in any "legacy" project - you will be lost in a swamp or you will fight to change existent environment.
    b) All internal processes are incredible slow. However they work. Slowly, but work.
