    I worked at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    I worked with a great team of talented people, most of which were contractors. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Departments are very silo'd, very little cross department collaboration. Too may people covering their own behinds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the bigger picture, look for synergies and encourage cross business working.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    DB is a very good company to work for.
    Very friendly people.
    Lots of responsibility.
    Forward thinking culture.

    Cons

    Very process driven and lots of delays throughout. The problem with any process driven organisation is if one step in the process is missed this affects the preceding steps.

    A lot of potential, but the center has a serious identity crisis.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people, on an individual level are good. The benefits package meets or exceeds everything in the area (especially on vacation / sick policy). Work from home allowance seems flexible, but appears to be at the discretion of your direct manager.

    Cons

    I was hired under the impression that this was a "Google like" dev workshop, but every time we have a visitor from New York or London, we have to put on suits and ties to pander to our overlords. This center has zero autonomy, and no control over the products we are "in charge" of delivering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the cord from New York and London. We are perfectly capable of running and developing software well above and beyond the short leash that we've been put on. The politicking needs to end.

    Former Employee - Assistant Vice President - Technology in Cary, NC (US)

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

    Pros

    DBGT has great benefits packages, reasonable pay packages.
    The team I worked with in Cary was great.

    Work hours were relatively manageable.

    Cons

    There are not enough resources for self learning. Very few CBTs available.
    Relatively few trainings held in classroom as well, other than the ones pushed down from management.
    DBGT is a separate legal entity - meant for software development for the bank. Downside, it got disconnected from the business and employees lack exposure to business knowledge and requirements, yet the organisation as a whole is just as regulated as the business, coz its still a bank. Makes it extremely hard to actually work and get ahead in your career. I have tried networking extremely well across the organisation, but DBGT has too many strategic issues, leading to a lot of internal politics to fight against, to get anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the impact of strategy to the people and business:
    ex: Moving jobs from London and NJ to Cary - and then hiring people in Cary to report to managers in NJ and London - caused complete disharmony and a conflict of interest among teams. This impacted deliveries across the board.

    Too many vendors - Lead to lack of accountability and the piecing together of ridiculous SLAs across all teams.
