    Pros

    The internship allowed us to see all of the front office divisions in depth.

    HR put on great networking and social events.

    The people seem keen to help and the culture is different compared to other places.

    An emphasis on pipelining us to the summer program throughout the week with various skills sessions.

    Cons

    CS is seen to be a middling bank, but the trade off is more than worth it if you want to work in a friendlier environment.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe more personal feedback during the week? And perhaps just send over a structure of the week beforehand.

    Pros

    Very helpful, lots of networking, useful insight sessions, attentive recruitment staff

    Cons

    Nothing that I would particularly think about. One thing that could have been done better: the HRs did not send us our schedule before the insight week.

    Pros

    Room for personal growth and a supportive team that wants to help you further develop. Wiling to find internal movement to stay within the company if you want to try something new.

    Cons

    It's not the easiest to gain all of the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing the pay for many of the employees to match competition

    Pros

    I was a participant on the 1st year spring insight program and I had an enjoyable week. Credit Suisse seems like a great company to work for with strong company values.

    Cons

    I hadn't undertaken work as such but the hours depend on your role. As expected, front office roles have longer hours than middle and back office roles.

    Advice to Management

    Constant feedback should be provided at regular intervals throughout any programme.

  11. Overall, very good company to work for in a long term.
