    Pros

    Credit Suisse uses a strong technology stack

    Cons

    Job security is low, due to sustained losses
    Firm is trying to shore up expenses, so locking down many systems, making it very difficult to get your job done in technology. Also, skills are not reusable due to requirement to use custom in-house systems.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the need for cutting expenses, but at some point you need to weigh the value of the people and systems you are keeping and eliminating.

    Pros

    - highly reputable with name recognition
    - competitive pay and good health care benefits
    - Smart and hard-working colleagues who have amazing global perspectives

    Cons

    Although I have worked at 4 other banks and understand it is not a warm and fuzzy place to work, this was by far my worst experience. The managers at all levels have no regard for their employees. When a large number of my co-workers got laid off, the department head couldn't even fake empathy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat US employees better, there should be more parity between policies and such in Switzerland as opposed to everywhere else
