    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay above average for my profession, able to go home on time nearly every day (rarely does work pile up), benefits for LGBT employees & their partners / spouses, great sizable year-end bonus

    Cons

    Rarely thanked, institutionalized "class system"

    Advice to Management

    Try to do away with this 'class system' (bankers vs. support & admin) with leading by example. If Directors and MD's start interacting more with support & admin employees, it will filter down.


  2. "Associate - Private Bank"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people, good culture. Really liked it.

    Cons

    Like any large company, the bureaucracy and systems can be a bit cumbersome at times.

    Advice to Management

    Shouldn't have sold the US Private Banking unit.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Solid senior leadership. Good deal flow. Will have the chance to work on lots of live deals. They try to give you from Fri at 6pm til Sunday at noon off.

    Cons

    Horrible technology. False deadlines. Other obvious cons about banking in general but you would find those at other banks too.

    Advice to Management

    Give more realistic deadlines for projects that are due well in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between management and junior resources
