Current Employee - Senior Software Developer in New York, NY

I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time

Pros

- Office facilities, space, location
- Benefits, including a very good health insurance and a decent 401k plan

Cons

- Horrible management, extremely limited communications and feedback. Kind of 'the least you talk to employees, the least mistakes you make' attitude
- It's who you're friend with
- Constant threat of layoffs
- In the end it feels like nobody cares about anybody else

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Merit should come before short term business interest. But I guess I'm discovering the corporate world here.

    Current Contractor - IT Consultant in Morrisville, NC

    I have been working at Credit Suisse as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company and policy makers have fairly good understanding of the business and have come up a long way of success in the recent year. This company is definitely going to be among topmost IBs and would love to work again if given a change

    Cons

    Less staff in almost every team, leading to overtime almost everyday. Due to this, I had to stop going to gym and I personally feel that I have made a mistake over here. No other hard feelings.

    Tremendous work pressure in almost every team I have worked with

    Fairly limited space for growth if you are a senior professional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start evaluating the work of your contractors/consultants in addition to your regular employees and try to retain them if they are exceptional

    Try to have some sort of exams that evaluates the candidature of everyone in the team (discretely and secretly)
