Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB

Advice to Senior ManagementIntegrate better

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

False promises

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mumbai

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

ProsBonus
Great colleagues - frankly too smart for this place

ConsMumbai office CIB is a back office - no client interaction allowed, no advancement in work role for 3-5 years, terrible work life balance with no glory

Advice to Senior ManagementBe transparent about no client interaction.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Management doesn't give two hoots about people

Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Mumbai

I worked at Deutsche Bank CIB as an intern for less than a year

ProsMoney - The pay is pretty good. If you're looking for a good place to learn about finance, DB CIB is perhaps a good place with a very steep learning curve, but just for the initial days. It is the perfect back office that does (almost) everything in financial markets, so, it's good if you want a diversity of stuff to work on.

ConsThe HR is perhaps the worst part - They're inefficient, arrogant, unhelpful and especially treat interns and new hires like crap. The senior management also never gives the impression that they care about you or your career, only about how much movey you make. Moreover, the job that most people do is extremely trivial and huge underutilization of talent. Most the job is just to assist and verify the work onshore.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo start caring about your own people. I know a ton of people who refused to join you just because they knew they'd never be cared for.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It is a decently good place to work for but there are better opportunities

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
Mumbai

I have been working at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time for more than a year

ProsIt pays a relatively good salary. The work life balance here is good. We get top have a good interaction with our onshore counterparts.

ConsIt is a front-office extension. We cannot directly trade or pitch to clients. It lacks career opportunities beyond 3-4 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementShould open up some form of trading and client pitching. Should increase percentage of variable compensation

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Its like working in a jail.

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
Mumbai

I have been working at Deutsche Bank CIB full-time

ProsHigh salaries & comfortable chairs to sit. Nothing else is worth it. The world thinks that you are a star working in CIB.

ConsKnucklehead leadership, false commitments by the company, extreme work hours, sick work culture, no team spirit. If you say 'NO' u get fired.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to treat your employees well and they will partner in your success. Stop treating them like animals with a badge. Take care of their life balance.
