    Pros

    Good salary, that is why people stay

    Cons

    Too political
    People that talk too much and concentrate attention and everyone's time in meetings normally get the best roles
    Lack of gender diversity
    Senior management tend to favour staff that they have an affinity for,
    Cultural change looks elegant in the policy documents, however most senior management are still bullies and don't actually do what they preach

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more objective and assess staff talents and potential objectively, as opposed to give opportunities just based on likeness
    Culture change should be seriously adopted by senior management and lead by example

    The Best IB Working Environment

    I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work in DB was the culture of teamwork. Its a high pressure industry - but the fact that you have your colleagues and manager looking out for you makes it a great environment. Some of the brightest minds in the industry are in this place

    Cons

    Same as other IB's - sometimes too much focus on the tactical lets the strategic goals slip away and then there is a last minute rush.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue Investing in Strategic Goals.

    Pros

    Work life balance, office culture are all good. People are good. Lot of learining opportunities involved.

    Cons

    Salary hike should be based on performance appraisal, also incentives should be given based on how critical client is the employee handling.

    More transparency should be brought in to judge all these factors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not be more objective.

    Pros

    Quality and intelligence of people
    Expertise in wide range of products make it easier to pitch clients
    Global reach to be able to answer any question
    Powerful brand name

    Cons

    Highly competitive. Company culture is to let people step on others' mandates in order to see who can do best. Of course you are not made aware that someone is trying to do your own job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More respect to employees and clients would benefit. The competitive culture exhausts staff, and in the end those who are able to climb to the top, however smart and outstanding, are those who do not care about the wider ecosystem.

    Back office, good pay, limited exit oppos

    Pros

    Compensation, work-life balance

    Compensation by general standards is really high. The sad bit is that it doesn't compare much to the front office. Being a back office, the office is slightly shielded from cycles in the economy.

    Cons

    Exit opportunities are limited. Attrition rate is really high. Little scope of movement to front office jobs within DB. Management does not seem very investment in their juniors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take an active interest in the human capital invested here. That would go a long way forward in ensuring that people are equipped to handle responsibilities and assume leadership roles.

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

    Pros

    Very smart people to work with, interesting projects (at least if you're an engineer) and a nice office space. It's a great place if you're a junior engineer and want to start you career. You'll learn all the essentials that help you to deliver large-scale and complex IT solutions. Very cool (local) senior management.

    Cons

    No career opportunities for senior engineers. You either become a manager or have look for opportunities outside of the company. Definitely too much bureaucracy and a lot of cost-cutting and travel freezes over the last years.
