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

    Pros

    Great benefits. The bank wants people to be happy and productive and tries through many initiatives. A lot of smart people, but motivation is low. Good work is rewarded.

    Cons

    Very politcal, need to step carefully. The systems are terrible and the proposed solutions are so large that they end up failing. Long term goals are routinely overruled by new initiatives from senior management. There's a lot of talk about communication and making things better for employees, but cost cutting and new regulations routinely trump those initiaves. It can be hard to make meaningful changes from the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of mistrust of management. They know this, and have instituted Town Halls and other forms of communications, but it doesn't seem to hold. The most honest thing I heard in my tenure was "the next couple of years will be bad", but I never was convinced that a proper plan was in place to make the time afterwards better. Management is in a hard spot, DB's capital is low, income is down and there is no clear path on how to make things better (other than "let's do what Goldman is doing").

    Pros

    High quality and hardworking people. Delivery is at the forefront of everyone's mind.

    Cons

    Lots of politics at higher levels. Things get done but in a chaotic and difficult environment. Comp has been lackluster and will continue to be so with the current focus on cost cutting.
