I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Supportive environment filled with good people, the firm also provides opportunities to improve skills.
Great culture with focus on the quality of work, good collegial atmosphere

Cons

The IT systems are a joke. Expect to do plenty of manual work to compensate for the lack of tools available.
Upper Management always shifting around, with no clearly defined strategy at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should really be able to show a clear vision for the businesses and demonstrate the commitment to spend money on systems when need be. The inability to follow through on these things can be demoralizing

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Possible global network and opportunities in a well established company. Pockets of talent exist in most centres and one could say that improvement is possible.

    Cons

    Culture gone wrong over time with too many old hands left in the company which cannot be removed. No intercompany cooperation exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create workgroups to eliminate inter-company cannibalism

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
