    Contractor

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Deutsche Bank as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Talented people, good work experience, opportunities, time off schedule and other key benefits that I heard of but did not get any since I worked as a contractor. Great place for someone who is result oriented.

    Cons

    Very limited access to information to do job, not sure if it was because of my status as a contractor, the manager style or company policy, which limited my ability to do my job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From a contractor's perspective - improve inter-group communication to be more open and transparent.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Free Parking and Convenient Eateries Nearby.

    Cons

    Unfriendly working environment. No one wants to share. Management is stifling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't send department wide emails telling people not to speak English in the common areas - that does not look good on your cultural diversity kudos. I'm 100% English and I'm ashamed to have experienced this.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    - Deal volume
    - Access to opportunities

    Cons

    - teamwork is not part of culture
    - old boys club/frathouse mentality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    culture is toxic. Associates and Analysts do not help out - you are on your own to learn

    NY IT all about cost/headcount cutting

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Jersey City, NJ (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ (US)

    I worked at Deutsche Bank as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Perhaps if the company / IT org gets turned around.

    Cons

    Observation of a recent contractor and former employee. Bare bones IT headcount while an increase in the amount of IT governance and regulatory policies to be followed. Outsourcing of everything is not always effective. Hard work with a view toward doing the right thing is sometimes overshadowed or trumped by politics and not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't create an environment that's all about cost reduction and also say you are (or want to be) an "employer of choice".

    Former Employee - Financial Services  in  Birmingham, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Financial Services in Birmingham, England (UK)

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent fellow staff; very well positioned site in the centre of Birmingham; good social life associated with work and the site managers made an effort to maintain the energy levels of the staff

    Cons

    Treated too much like an external service provider to London by some of the senior managers in the bank, and not like part of the same company. Too many senior managers in DB looking to blame others for major projects not being delivered rather than look for solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None for Birmingham Management; but London Managers could learn to work more collaboratively with the very talented staff they have in Birmingham.
