U.S. employees of a German investment bank filed a $1.4 billion discrimination lawsuit Monday, portraying the company as a sexist playland where women were hired as “eye candy” and one was referred to as “the Pamela Anderson of trading.”

The lawsuit accused Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein Securities LLC of letting inappropriate and offensive behavior flourish at the U.S. wing of Dresdner Bank, which provides a full range of capital markets and advisory services for clients. It is owned by Allianz AG.
