Current Employee - Senior Software Developer in New York, NY
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.

    Former Employee - Trader in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Trader in New York, NY

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    People are hard-working and smart.
    Great place to learn a thing or two from more senior people.
    Lean organization, so lots of responsibilities given to junior guys.

    Cons

    Culture is not great. Hours are bad.
    Technology is HORRIBLE. The Traders are awesome at what they do, Salespeople are awesome at what they do. But someone please fix the technology. The technology becomes so problematically bad such that the junior traders become way too preoccupied in fixing stuff during the day when the market is moving around. The mishaps in technology seriously cost many traders money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better technology people. Actually, hire more tech people. Treat the tech people better.
