    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank

    Pros

    Lot of scope of learning new things, IJPs are pretty good

    Cons

    Current situation in Deutsche bank Pune is pitiful. Non deserving candidates get promotions as they lick manager's feet. Deserving candidates should learn to do this only the they are eligible to get promotions.Dirty politics is the integral part. Managers focus on putting employees life on stake.They don't care about pandemic situations, natural calamities, illness.Unnecessary work pressure, yelling on team members, humiliating team people in front of others. AVP and VP do not have process knowledge and they keep on bullying team for no reasons.Team feedback not taken seriously from higher management.HR does not have any role to perform there.No work life balance, employee unfriendly.Ridiculous work place!!
