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

    Pros

    Reputation and brand image
    Mobility
    Senior Management trying to drive change

    Cons

    Political and hierarchical
    Race discrimination- people stick to their own kind and lack of diversity. Local bank work environment rather than multinational bank.
    Process focused workforce - limited commercial vision
    Poor systems and even worse project management
    Big Bang approach to change rather than well planned and methodical- leads to wasted resources and frustrated employees when projects go live
    Unfriendly
    Zero work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the push for diversity and calling bad behaviours
    On the job training is not working - reinforces bad processes and there is ab underlying unwillingness to change. Need regular shake-ups and proper training for existing and new employees to limit attrition

    Give teams in Cary authority to make decisions. Move IT work out of the three most expensive cities in the world.

    Bureaucracy, bureaucracy is everywhere. Even to do a small change in code, you need to collect dozen of approvals.

    Consider to delegate responsibility to lower-level executors, rather than supervise each their step.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Jersey City, NJ (US)

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

    Pros

    Great company to work at. Worked as a consultant in IT for a year. Pay was in line with market standards. This company is very into their human capital and is committed to career advancement and retaining talent. Direct management very aware of potential challenges within the bank and are quick to focus on avoiding disruption.

    Cons

    This large organization is constantly changing. This often shifts priorities of management and changes objectives to where it is difficult to maintain progress on current projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create consistency in management without reorganizing every few months.
