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

Deutsche Bank
Associate - Financial Control Accountant (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands4 April 2018
A very tough place to work and I learnt to handle pressure and how to manage stakeholder expectations.

The Birmingham office had a London working ethic and a typical day was from market opening to when the last work of the day was complete.

Fast Paced and Exciting Environment
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands27 March 2018
Deutsche offers a world of opportunity to develop and expand your career in either your current area of expertise or by the utilising internal mobility into a new area. There is strong emphasis on the values and beliefs of the bank, these include client centricity and integrity, and this is seen throughout all areas and levels of the Bank. It is fast paced and demanding but there is also a lot of encouragement for self development via a range of training schemes. It is however a difficult time for Deutsche Bank and strategic decisions have been made which have, and will continue to result in, job losses which has had a detrimental effect on morale.
Pros
Training Opportunities and Internal Mobility
Cons
Long hours, weekend working, job security

Good company but infrastructure needs improvement
Vice President (Current Employee) –  London17 March 2018
A company with a great history but poor IT investment. Some of our IT systems are really old and unwieldy. There are too many legacy systems and the company is struggling to unify them.

The company is presently struggling with the Markets division and has been loss making for the last 3 years.
Pros
Good brand
Cons
Compensation not great as compared to some similar American banks

Busy and productive workplace
FO Client Account Administrator (Former Employee) –  London City4 February 2018
I worked in a small yet very productive busy team. There were very tight deadlines and high volumes as we were dealing with lots of Client queries, requests and reporting. I am lucky to have had the opportunity to work within this sector of the Bank.

Focused and driven
Internship (Former Employee) –  London28 January 2018
I only spent six weeks with the events team at Deutsche Bank as I was there to assist with one of their bigger events. Deutsche are the main sponsor for the Frieze Art Fair and provide a VIP lounge on site for their guests.
While working with the team I was to provide support in any way necessary to enable a smooth and organised event for the Deutsche guests to attend. This included such things as putting together promotional packs and ticket packs, collating all of the guests personal details and ensuring that all guests and staff had the relevant passes.
I was offered support where needed and given the freedom to work on other projects were I required to help.
Whilst at Deutsche I was given the opportunity to visit possible locations for Clients to stay or dine at to deem if they were suitable.
The hardest part was that as an intern I was there for one specific reason, when I was not needed on my project or had completed my work I found that tasks to fill my time were hard to come by.
Working on the Frieze Art Fair was thoroughly enjoyable and allowed a glimpse into an alien world that would have otherwise been difficult to see and to learn from a fast paced work environment.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Detached work environment

Good brand but highly political place to work
Vice President (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London26 January 2018
Good brand but highly political place to work

Pros:
See good deals come your way. The bank is always in the top 5-10 places in the league tables so that adds credibility to the dialogue with clients

Cons:
Highly likely that you don't get credit for your work.
People burn out and then they're shown the door.
