Former Employee - Investment Banking Associate in New York, NY

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

Pros

great benefits :-). relatively relaxed, very international company. culture open and fairly tolerant, less cut-throat than at other investment banks. management easily accessible. great corporate culture. great place to work overall (not taking into account specific group).

Cons

quite conservative in terms of doing business. swiss stamp is a positive in some ways and a negative in others. investment banking energy group had brutal hours -- expected, but still no lifestyle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

is it possible to start taking more risk? the street views CS as a super-conservative place. Brady has done a great job (in my personal opinion), but CS trades at a discount to other swiss banks (UBS)

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good, hard working co-workers, management looks to retain good talent with internal mobility options.

    Cons

    Too many cost cutting measures in recent years have left most teams well understaffed. At the same time workload has increased.

    Former Employee - Private Banking Intern in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Employees at all levels and in all departments were highly intelligent, very friendly, and willing to answer any questions pertaining to the culture of Credit Suisse or about the more technical aspects of the job.

    Cons

    This has been a difficult time period for all financial institutions and, as such, there were numerous times layoffs were announced or the firm was showing up in the news for being under capitalized, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide employees with a great place to learn and develop their careers.
