    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Credit Suisse - VP - research

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsLittle to no "difficult" people. Nice people.

    ConsCredit Suisse is embattled in a defensive stance that makes management forget about revenues and focus exclusively on cost cutting. Even if you demonstrate that spending 1$ makes the company 5$ they will say no.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive people upside otherwise they lose motivation and go somewhere else. Those who accept to work for no upside are not the achievers that will make this business top tier again.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Spring IBD Intern programme

    Spring IBD Intern (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    Pros- Great presentation skills exercise
    - Networking events
    - Trading game

    Cons- Lack of 'real' work
    - Interpersonal skill emphasis was too great
    - Lack of role rotation (to shadow/see both equities and fixed income is impossible).

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire individuals with intuitive ability rather than individuals with textbook knowledge.
    The firm seems to operate on a basis of meaningless small talk, similar to RBS in the sense that a few individuals pretend to know what they are talking about, the interview process should be more thorough.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
