    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of people to meet with great opportunity to grow. Visited many offices in the US and all the workers are very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    So many managements and changes that the support team have a hard time following. Recently assigned team leads are a joke. Instead of mentoring and provide supporting for their team member, they are nothing but manager's puppies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent deskside outsourced management does not not have a clue how to run the business. Please bring back the old management team.

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

    Pros

    rotational period before finding a full time desk, lots of mentorship opportunities, very respected bank

    Cons

    they run a lean shop and that means every person is doing a lot of work and can be rather stressful at times (even more so than at other banks probably)

    Pros

    the bank has excellent product platform in Brazil with good funding and smart co workers. compensation is adherent to market. the bank has a strong client base.

    Cons

    Brazil is not one of the main hubs of the bank so certain businesses might not get the attention one would wish it got. also, the bank is fast to change its strategy and adjust to the market which is a negative aspect for clients looking for relationship banks.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time

    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

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    DB has a great graduate training program, with very structured training material and classes with rotations on various desks and great people who manage the whole program. Lots of smart and very capable people working in the bank.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are some limitations on the IT side of things in terms of infrastructure investment and sometimes there appears to be a lot of internal competitions between people for business etc - but that may be expected of any bank

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think having more personal growth would be very beneficial with courses for personal training, development and growth; management programs etc;
