    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.
