    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time

    Pros

    Meritocracy is returning under new leadership. Opportunities to re-grow market share as strateg shifts from offensive to defensive.

    Cons

    Annual compensation is heavily weighted towards restricted stock that vests over several years. We could use IT investments.

    Advice to Management

    Build a closer relationship with key employees and leverage their perspective more in making long-term business decisions and new hires.

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

    Pros

    Hire a lot of really good people so coworkers are a big plus. Lots of potential areas to work in and they really encourage internal mobility.

    Cons

    Recently losing touch of some of the human element and focusing only on the bottom line. Many not seeing clear roads to advancement and getting discouraged

    Pros

    Good people, good technology and decent pay. Working conditions are good. People are professional and helpful. Management is open to suggestions.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, reward by association is noticeable. There also seems to be over reliance on project managers. Though not too averse, culture has definitely changed .

    Advice to Management

    Disregard self patting, very suggestive anonymous reviews and talk to people. In spite of lot of cost cutting, there is lot of fat remaining.

    Pros

    Good pay and occasional fun events like a Yankee game. A lot of networking events, the gym is fantastic (but not free)

    Work was boring. Everyone seemed to be spending all their time making dashboards. No free coffee for tech people, only traders get that.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure managers actually have time to take on an intern
