I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

A great place to work in. A lot of philanthropic events, and great individuals to meet and learn from. Credit Suisse has provided me with a great experience and challenges.

Cons

In general, challenging environments to work in the financial industry. As teams shrink and have been downsizing, it is challenging to find different opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement and make decisions quicker. The management does a great job informing others of changes. They promote and work with employees to make things work.

    Strong Entrepreneurial Culture but Rewards Not Aligned With Industry

    Former Employee - Investment Banking Analyst in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Investment Banking Analyst in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Great entrepreneurial culture - everyone has to pitch (investment banking business), but the company values everyone's ideas. Most people are understanding and work well together

    Cons

    The biggest con is the lack of transparency with regards to firm goals. During the downturn, most were told that CS was doing fine (which it was) but our compensation was also low. Most were willing to take a cut on their pay due to the downturn but that just didn't sync with how well the firm was doing in relation to other banks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better transparency with all employees as to the direction of the firm and the reasons for certain actions
