    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I was there I my coworkers were great. Positive, mentally healthy people who cared about doing a good job. Some bureaucracy but could always be overcome by people who know how to get stuff done. My best job in finance.

    Cons

    I was downsized shortly after the new CEO come on. There have been several rounds of layoffs since. I'm told it has impacted the culture and atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Downsizing may be necessary but please be careful of impacting the culture.

  6. "Loved my time there."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues -- smart, creative, collegial. I had many opportunities to move around in different roles over the years and learned a lot. (Not sure that's still the case, in the current climate.) Excellent benefits, including maternity leave. Emphasis on "giving back"; plenty of volunteering opportunities. The 5-star rating reflects my overall experience at CS.

    Cons

    The strategic reduction of US- and EMEA-based businesses means there are fewer opportunities in these regions. There have been many rounds of layoffs.
