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

    Pros

    While I was at my department, all of my coworkers were a joy to work with. They really do integrate themselves into your life. The supervisors and managers are all very understanding and see you as a team player. The pay is good, since youve entered the shadow realm of banking, and

    Cons

    The environment can be a bit dull. Silence is interpreted as golden here. Other than that, I really didnt see any cons.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest to management to liven up the office. Perhaps they should paint some walls or restructure their cubicles/productivity setup just for the sake of more engagement. I understand that the corporate banking culture is a very serious one, but thats not a reason to remain stagnant on many things.

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Supports meritocracy. Very professional conduct. You will learn daily. Opportunity to grow. Supports mobility. High into D&I campaign.

    Cons

    Under resourced, so more work and long hours. Regional bias, Americas aren't the favorites. Hard to justify high cost center position if you're in NY, oddly no issue if you're in London or Zurich.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down unnessary change/strategy organization or hire right people to do that job. Those are in these org survive by the knowledge and contribution of other org they liaise with, only to take the credit of SMEs of other org.

    Pros

    Smart people, civil and respectful culture, lots of opportunity to drive improvements if you aren't afraid to be a leader and drive things.

    Cons

    Sometimes feel like many of the smart people are waiting for somebody to give them permission to drive change - need more people that will take initiative to drive change w/o over syndicating for permission and approval. Risk adverse and too consensus driven.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make the tough decisions.
