    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    flexible work hours, diversity policy. colleagues are almost always civil.

    Cons

    Risk adverse culture that perpetuates bureaucracy with layers of processes, and hence inefficiencies. Unnecessary, impractical control processes are imposed that inflate effort, costs, and frustrates the workforce. Need to be disciplined, smarter and bolder about using technology in the right ways for the right things. Have been in a cost control and reduction mode like forever. Mid-management morale is not great. Always feel that jobs are on the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Impose strict accountability, don't use risk aversion as a shield to avoid accountability. Don't accept mediocrity and actively promote meritocracy rather than cronyism and presentism disguised as "effective networking". Try to keep things simple. In danger of becoming a clunky ineffective inefficient bureaucracy. Let's be smarter. Let's be bold. Lowering costs by penny pinching isn't the way forward.

    Pros

    Credit Suisse has a great reputation with a major boost in your resume/CV if you are employed. Work is done professionally and with immaculate detail.

    Cons

    In-department work culture is full of bureaucracy and politics. Unofficial hierarchy chains are created even though the bank promotes a vertical chain of work command. AVPs deemed themselves on par with VPs and isolate themselves from ENOs creating an even further gap when added on with the said hierarchy issue. Elitist cultural is rampant in the bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To enforce work culture that the bank promotes.

    Pros

    Good people and culture. Work is manageable. Company takes care of employees needs well. Managers are very accommodating. Pay for a given level work compared to market is relatively higher.

    Cons

    Work is not challenging. No room for title promotions. All though internal mobility is talked about a lot in the company, it really is not an open and transparent process. You really need to gain internal mobility through traditional means (networking, constantly upgrading and making your skills relevant, education etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work needs to be challenging and title promotions should come according to market standards.
