Productive and very professional
Data Centre Engineer (Former Employee) –  London4 September 2018
Very much enjoyed the location of the Deutsche Bank/ Sungard location as it took me one bus to get there.

A huge HP hardware infrastructure so there was always something to do and was kept very busy in my short contract at Deutsche Bank.
Pros
Excellent location
Cons
Not much management communication

Cultural differences prevent progression
Chief Operating Office (Former Employee) –  London31 August 2018
This global organisation is stuck in a time warp. Although there are many professional people working there they work in silos and have regional differences which prevent progression. Nothing is delivered or agreed
Pros
The money was good
Cons
Job satisfaction zero as nothing ever delivered

Work Shadowing (Former Employee) –  London5 August 2018
Having only worked briefly at DB, I didn't get a huge insight into the company culture as a whole but I was welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
I was able to work in a number of departments and see the various requirements for each job role.

fun place to work, too much bureaucracy
Vice President (Former Employee) –  London30 June 2018
Great start to career at DB. moved around. Lack of controls and elevated levels of bureaucracy made getting things done harder. Too much decision making power in the hands of mid-level management. Good opportunities available if able to navigate culture to get things done.

Needs to improve
Financial Crime Analyst (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands29 May 2018
The bank is large and un organised with many of the projects being knee jerk reactions which do not achieve their purpose.

Recent change in the board may help but there appears to be a lot of cuts at the moment.
Pros
Big Bank
Cons
not as professional as it should be.

Well-paid, culture needs an overhaul
Marketing (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London14 May 2018
DB is a well-paid company but it needs to modernise. It is a very bureaucratic place to work and out of touch with the needs of millennials and others seeking more than just money.

Productive and Good opportunities to advance
Secretary - RREEF Real Estate Division (Former Employee) –  London3 May 2018
Due to the nature of the work, a typical day evolved providing administrative duties to my team and handling their busy workload.

Even though a had worked for large corporations before Deutsche Bank was a very structured company and had specific ways in which work was carried and out and their complex systems.

Despite that Deutsche Bank was a hard working place they also had a good environment and culture ethics to work in. The diversity was great and equally opportunities and fair working environment.

The hardest part was there was no room for error at times due to their complex technological systems.

The most enjoyable part was the rewards and benefits they offered and provided. They believe in working hard but also rewarding their staff for their hard work and commitment.
Pros
Good company ethics
Cons
Long hours
