    "IT PMO Officer"

    I have been working at Credit Suisse (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, Salary & Vacation

    Cons

    Efficiency nor process improvement is valued. Neither is training for new employees to enable them to perform at an optimal rate.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent during recruitment process and rewrite job descriptions so the job duties are clear. An AVP level job with a Six figure salary should not be performing data entry and capturing meeting minutes every single day. That's an administrative assistant/secretary job. Hire the right people for jobs. Run from the IT PMO Officer position in Raleigh!

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Until recently it was a great place to work, good people, good culture

    Cons

    Pay is ridiculously low and despite what they will tell you, not competitive, The New York office looks down on the Raleigh office, even here people are worried about losing their jobs, the place seems way off its former track. With the poor economic situation the bank is in the vultures are circling and management are infighting. Mood is not good and it is not fun any more.

    Advice to Management

    Go the way that some other banks have gone and you will destroy what is left of the good parts of the company
