Great Company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Overall, a good place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Deutsche Bank

ProsNice people in most areas that I have dealt with. Very good work life balance. Experience has been relatively good.

ConsWeak infrastructure. Needs a major overhaul of systems and processes. Salaries are not that great, but for the hours worked, it too bad.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
