    Pros

    Work life balance, office culture are all good. People are good. Lot of learining opportunities involved.

    Cons

    Salary hike should be based on performance appraisal, also incentives should be given based on how critical client is the employee handling.

    More transparency should be brought in to judge all these factors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not be more objective.

    Pros

    It is an awesome place to work. There is a lot of diversity in terms of the kind of roles you can practice.

    Cons

    There are not too many drawbacks that are there. Work-life balance would vary depending on the role and geography you are working for.

    Pros

    Type of work varies and career depends a lot on the desk you work for. Senior management bothers much about compliance these days.

    Cons

    Switching roles isn't straightforward. Processes are slow and time consuming. Working hard and delivering results may get unnoticed unless you highlight them.

    Pros

    If you are one of the kind, you can make through all the obstacles to a niche for itself.

    Cons

    Management or boss won't care a single bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at the organization as an integral part of the group as a whole, not merely as an offshore service Centre.

    Great colleagues - frankly too smart for this place

    Cons

    Mumbai 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 ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent about no client interaction.

    Former Intern - Financial Analyst in Mumbai
    Former Intern - Financial Analyst in Mumbai

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

    Pros

    Money - 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Do 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.
