Great learning, potentially poor growth

Analyst (Former Employee)

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

ProsGood culture, can learn a lot from fellow employees. The pay is good and the work hours aren't too bad, much better than some of the other BB banks

ConsThe job can get mundane at times. Middle management in my experience seemed a bit clueless and redundant. Career progression is more often than not a simple matter of putting in the years.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your people happy

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Jaipur has no independent identity or standing in any business decisions or work environment.

Team Manager (Current Employee)
Jaipur, Rajasthan

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

ProsNice work environment
Work place is appealing clean and well maintained with good premises and work conditions.
Transport has improved a lot with timely pick up and drops
Work life balance is maintained
Nice incentives for learning

ConsJaipur does not have its independent identity
All decisions are driven by Managers siting in Mumbai/Bangalore
No support from AVPs or VPs. They are just technical heads with no involvement in driving change or improving people involvement
Worst is Managers are more postmen instead of heads who can drive change
Work is totally with lower level management and higher levels only delegate their work and responsibility while claiming success for others work.
HR is afraid to take action or verify any mis-work or complaint and it is just informed to management as an improvement point

Advice to Senior ManagementTake responsibility
Try to take stance than just being swayed around by other locations
Identify Talent and not promote under name of diversity.
HR is something that has become a highly paid bureaucrat who behaves more like a politician rather than as an driving force

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
