    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time for 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

    This is place where technology meets and finance. We build vast majority of technology to the bank including connectivity, pricing, risk, data warehousing. On a business there is fx, fixed income, money markets, options - so all verity of financial instruments are for you. If you enjoy finance and (server side) technology it would be the best place to work in St. Petersburg.
    Company provides good opportunities for trainings including all soft of soft skills, technology skills and participating in relevant meetings.
    For graduates there is amazing Java School which not only teaches with advanced (and demanded in real world) tricks in Java but also provides jobs with amazing compensations.

    Cons

    Getting promoted to managerial positions might be tricky in some teams (however is relatively easy in others)
    Big distance to the actual business built by organisation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you could do one thing do this: close the gap between business and IT organisation
