    I worked at Credit Suisse as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Credit Suisse has a great environment, for interns at least. My managers were very supportive and always willing to answer my questions. I was able to work on many relevant projects and also to hone my skills for the rest of my career. You get to meet a lot of smart people and also get the opportunity to receive career advice from people that are experts in their field.

    Cons

    Work can get stressful at times but that is expected of any job. Management support really helps to alleviate this so it really wasn't much of a problem.

    Amazing relationships, access to senior management, culture

    Difficult industry environment and one that makes a work-life balance nearly impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in people and maintain culture....the guy that has been here 20+ years is the culture. Don't drift into ambitiousness.

    Pros

    A great place to work, positive can do attitude that fosters collaboration. They practice what they preach in term of treating people with respect and as a result, people from diverse backgrounds enjoy success at the company. Their graduate program is also very good.

    Cons

    While a great company, the red tape can be at times very frustrating. It takes a while to get people through the hiring process particularly when it is close to the end of year. The best time to join CS in my opinion is February or March, when recruitment budgets are open.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the red tape

    Pros

    Exposure to new challenges working in a different setting from what I am normally used to working. I am eager to market myself at NBC

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am a team player, reliable, honest, trustworthy, time conscious individual. I take pride in all my work and will always put my best foot forward in representing your company/firm through my work and in communications while at work.
