    Stay away from IT in the AMRS region at least in the equity derivatives space.

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location and having the name of a "big" bank on your resume.

    Cons

    1) I was hired after the crash in 2008 after mass layoffs at another firm. They gave me a lowball offer that I unfortunately had to take - not a great way to start building trust.

    2) All the decisions for this company are made in other regions. Equity derivatives IT was a bare-bones operation in AMRS. The management decisions were made in London and nearly ALL of the development and tech talent was in Singapore. Every ounce of knowledge I needed to learn was offshore and specifically in Singapore. I consider myself a fairly motivated person driven to succeed but you can't build a good initial knowledge base of the systems you need to work on if the only folks you have to talk to are in the complete opposite time zone and too busy to teach you which leads me to my next point.

    3) The folks in Singapore(mostly from India) were worked like they were at a Foxconn factory and we in AMRS were expected to compete with that. This essentially means no upward mobility if you want any kind of a life.

    4) The lower level managers are pretty weak and transparent in their efforts to pull results out of people and teams. I wouldn't consider any of them good leaders or even good mentors. Managers are afraid of upper management and just whip folks below them. Part of this is company culture but years later being in that position myself I either mentor and look after my folks properly or it's time to leave.

    5) Insane amount of bureaucracy but this is typical of a Swiss bank - you wouldn't see this at other investment banks at that time.

    6) Insanely cheap; penny wise and dollar foolish - management couldn't wait to get their hands on the next up and coming tech-region where folks were even more desperately looking for work. This year Singapore, next year close down that hub and head over to Malaysia or somewhere else all the while killing continuity in your development projects and team growth. It's not like they were paying the folks in Singapore anything good either compared to a salary in the EMEA or AMRS region. Beyond that, offshoring everything and providing everyone an awful service just to save a buck just gets annoying to all but upper-management. You're constantly trying to sync up with folks in other regions and more time is spend doing that than actually getting anything done.

    Years later I have learned that offshoring can be utilized but there are limits. Follow-the-sun models and regional dependencies look great on paper but in reality they are much tougher to execute properly for the folks actually doing it. You'll wind up with a high turnover rate.

    7) No free coffee - this seems small and petty but it raises an important point. If a company is too cheap to offer free coffee at the bare minimum you do NOT want to work for them. This is the cheapest and simplest daily "thank-you" lifestyle accommodation a company can make for their employees.

    I'm sure there are folks who are very happy in this company but they are at least at the director level where they can stay above the churning of the masses. Don't be dazzled by big banks for IT; you will not get ahead there. Unless you're coming in at a high level use the short time you have there to learn how they do things and how not to do things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Who am I kidding, they wouldn't listen to someone who had this low-life position.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
