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

    Pros

    Company Values are excellent. Partnering between teams works well. Horizontal relationships are first rate.
    Challenging work environment is stimulating.

    Cons

    Management is generally out of touch with their employees day to day work experience, making realistic opportunities impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the false posturing and bland platitudes. Learn what your subordinates are dealing with every day so you can identify with their experience.

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salaries
    Good people (mostly)
    Interesting work
    A few good managers

    Cons

    Cost cutting has meant quotas for letting people go - no longer any incentive to do good work or contribute beyond what it takes to make your management look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and acknowledge that all of your HR programs are meaningless. Start rewarding good managers who look out for and develop their people.

    I have been working at Credit Suisse

    Pros

    They pay money and the office is walking distance.

    Cons

    Not the best company. Terrible HR department (I don't know how any of them got their jobs, but they are pretty bad at hiring). Credit Suisse doesn't pay enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I thought simple advice could fix the atrocious management I would give some.

  10. Great culture

    Nothing, Food on site, i got to leave.
