Credit Suisse - IBD Associate (London office)

Investment Banking Associate (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Credit Suisse

Pros- Compensation is above the street
- Senior bankers try to understand work-life balance
- Deal flow was high during the LBO era, but slowed down considerably starting in 2008, even when compared to other bulge bracket banks

Cons- Deal sizes tend to be middle-market level
- Some senior bankers are not top-notch material
- Communication from senior management to junior bankers can be improved
- Some MD's do not really have an open door policy

Advice to Senior Management- Some groups have great communication lines between the Head and junior bankers (ie. Energy group). Other groups (ie M&A group) have MD's who tend to let their junior bankers find out important developments from other sources

I worked at Credit Suisse


Pros: Well organised IT organisation with interesting work and good chance to "grow" within your technical area… Cons: Don't expect to get promoted, banding and corporate titles are under very heavy quotas, the size… Advice to Senior Management: none More
