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

Pros

There is a lot to learn, people are great, depending on your group, it can be a relaxed work environment. The location in Midtown Manhattan is very convenient.

Cons

Can be hard to get anything done and advance because of the politics. Moving internally is not easy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions based on a long term strategy, not just the short term.

    I have been working at Credit Suisse as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Culture is great, people are very considerate and mature, lots of internal mobility with locations around the globe

    Cons

    Not incredibly competitive if you are someone who wants to win everything everyday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is almost nothing management can really do to address the issues I have. More of a personal lack of fit for me than the company. They are who they are and they do that really well. They dont take unnecessary risk didnt take a bailout but also arent incredibly competitive. If your mantra is "Worlds most admired bank" profits arent always main concern and that can be a good thing
