    Great culture, and many smart people, latest technology. Lots of opportunities to learn and internal mobility within the firm is great.

    Doing great.

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

    Pros

    Learned a lot. Every team uses different technologies so plenty of things to learn. Can work from home if needed. All my managers there were easy to work with. Company paid for my masters degree.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy. Company rules are not flexible. Big team in India so group meetings (from NYC) can be difficult. It's a global company so many people/teams you work with are in a different state/country. Software development process is slow due to all the paperwork required.
