Project management analyst intern

Project Management Analyst Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Deutsche Bank as an intern for less than a year

ProsThis was a really great company to work for, and for a bank they had a really great company culture. I have friends working from Morgan Stanley and Goldman, and I would say I enjoyed my work way more than them.

ConsThe big cons I had working there is similar to any other big company. It's hard finding out who to contact for which problems, but they try there best to fix that issue.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Compared to local alternatives DB Moscow Dev center is an oasis for IT specialists

Head of IT Development Unit (Former Employee)
Moscow (Russia)

I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 8 years

Pros- international exposure and friendly atmosphere
- mobility opportunities - can stay with the company but change profile
- no much bureaucracy (for those who saw real bureaucracy)
- compensation package and insurance
- real business

Cons- attempts to build service based models by the central IT organization has seeded non-delivery roles for "talkers" and politicians

Advice to Senior ManagementBe aware: people get spoiled by too much good. So just raising the bar of what the organization gives to employees would not retain your best people
