    I worked at Deutsche Bank part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and work environment. Ability to gain knowledge is completely dependent upon your work ethic and desire to learn.

    Cons

    Slim guidance from upper management. More of a sink or swim environment. If your unable to teach yourself or unable to figure out how, this job is not for you.

    Current Employee - PWM in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I have been working at Deutsche Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vacation time is generous, not restrictive with corporate card use to entertain clients/prospects, relatively easy to communicate with senior management, great people.

    Cons

    Archaic systems, e.g. LOTUS NOTES!, no training except for analysts who don't deserve or appreciate it, bonuses are subjective. Bankers not held accountable for overspending or not producing results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRAIN THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN LOYAL AND ARE ASKING FOR IT! REWARD LOYALTY AND MERITS WITH MORE COMPENSATION OR YOU WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE GOOD PEOPLE AND HAVE TO REPLACE THEM WITH MORE EXPENSIVE HIRES.
    WHY HIRE OUTSIDERS AND PAY THEM A LOT MORE THAN THE CURRENT EMPLOYEES?

    Pros

    - many small discretionary projects for interns

    - low to no tolerance for errors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - don't fund government, do not interact with politicians, and stay out of the business of making regulations, laws, rules etc.

    Pros

    Lot of opportunities, need to be looking constantly for challenges. Great team of people to work with lots of motivating people around in different teams.

    Offen changing management and organisational changes, demotivating / lack of vision in some of yhe team members dampen your aspirations and also creates a lot of stress.

    Change is inevitable but we need to keep these changes to the minimum. Its a great place to work different cultural background.
