I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Still has some good 'old school' high calibre people, still very strong/top tier in specific areas of IBD and capital markets. Still offers good exit opps.

Cons

Best people are rapidly leaving the firm, no longer as good as it was in a number of areas, is falling down the ranks. Swiss regulatory issues don't help either.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seems like there is too much change in strategy at too high a frequency.

    Pros

    1. Brand value, CS is considered amongst top employers in Investment banking technology domain.
    2. High salary.
    3. Open culture.
    4. Decent work life balance.

    Cons

    1. No regular transportation ( only after 10 pm though).
    2. CTC is a lot bloated, so you need to negotiate on more in-hand amount.
    3. Politics as in other companies.
    4. Personally, I felt there was a less quality of work for people in Technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to maintain the Open culture and ward off the growing politics.

    Nice people and human capital but badly rewarded with increasing cost-cutting measures

    Pros

    The people are nice and mostly capable at what they are doing. Good work culture where almost everyone is helpful and willing to assist you even though it's outside their formal responsibility.

    Cons

    Cost-cutting and outsourcing measures being implemented everywhere, often by not taking into account the effect of such measures on surrounding business units / departments / systems. As a result there's a lot of human capital loss and performance degradation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more careful in cutting costs / outsourcing business units. Although the target numbers are achieved there may be repercussions in the future.
