I met many fantastic colleagues whilst working here whom I enjoyed collaborating with.
The company is experiencing a lot of change and very often. Therefore there is a lack of stability and feels disruptive for staff. There is a lot of emphasis on the structure of the company. There should be more focus on the actual work as opposed to management hierarchy. The company doesn't need so many directors and vice presidents. Too much focus on management who aren't doing an effective job.
The amount of redundant work is high and we could half this by not repeating the work we do. Sometimes feels like the company is trying to reinvent itself every 6 months.
Only the brightest and best in DB. Brilliant people, lovely offices, great working atmosphere. Opportunities to grow your career with a market leader in asset and wealth management. Highly competitive salary and all kinds of other benefits, strong graduate training programme and a chance to work abroad.
Very bureaucratic company culture. Internal systems are sometimes frustratingly slow and senior managers seem highly risk averse. Difficult for employees to swap to a new team once you've made your mark and this can hold you back. There's definitely a silo mentality.
Employee pricing scheme: uses DB's leveraging power to get you brilliant deals on almost everything from mobile phones to minibreaks.
Fair pay shouldn't be a benefit!
