    Great

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEntrepreneurial give a lot of freedom and opportunity to youngsters to show their talent. Also small teams encourage bankers to gain wide expertise

    Land of opportunities

    Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) Mumbai

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

    ConsManagement or boss won't care a single bit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart looking at the organization as an integral part of the group as a whole, not merely as an offshore service Centre.

    False promises

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mumbai

    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

    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

    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

    Its like working in a jail.

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Mumbai

    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.
