    Incredible working environment

    Summer Intern (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsWorked as an intern in the CFO department, at 21 was offered a graduate program that would have been £36,000 p/a in 2012. The working environment was modern, people were fairly relaxed and the gym in the basement of their canary wharf office is by far the best gym I've ever been a member of!

    ConsAs I was in the CFO department, lots of the work was process focused with very little, if any, challenging work.

    Good to place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsLoved the work environment, open, friendly and international colleagues. Lots to learn and ability to move across teams and regions.

    ConsSlow to respond to market initiatives. Can do better in terms of technology. They have some really outdated stuff. If they overhaul systems and standardise processes - they should be well on their way up. Probably pay a little less than industry standards.

    Pleasant experience, friendly co-workers, open culture

    Summer Analyst (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsOne of the biggest advantages of working at CS is the wide range of support available and the policy of open doors - you get a lot of attention and help from senior people, even if you are just an intern. They also employ some of the brightest people and have a prolific multicultural environment. They are one of the few financial corporations who required no taxpayer money during the financial crisis, as well, and managed to reorganize internally.

    ConsGetting to grips with the systems and platforms in use can be time consuming, but this is only a temporary issue you might face when beginning your job.

    Excellent work place

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsThe work place is extremely professional, can maintain very good work life balance

    ConsToo many Type "A" personalities, some times one can end up with 2-3 supervisors at a time which can lead to confusion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo many levels of hierarchy, the organisation needs to be bit flat

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
