    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.

    I worked at Deutsche Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Diverse work force. Great office spaces. Regular work hours and good benefits. Better than average PTO days. You can also take advantage of a number of company sponsored technology or business classes.

    Cons

    For me, working in bank IT is less exciting as working for one of the tech companies in the Silicon Valley. The culture of large investment banks are also less "uplifting" than SV companies.

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

    Pros

    The Cary, North Carolina physical plant is very nice. It is located right next to the Black Creek Greenway, a pleasant afternoon walk. Promised future renovations include a cafeteria and gym.

    Cons

    They never do things right the first time. Middle management seems incapable of learning from its many failures. Senior management encourages middle management to blame subordinates instead of taking responsibility. The pervasive culture of blame means people spend more time and effort finger-pointing than actually doing work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees ignore what you say but attend to what you do. Act accordingly.
