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

    Pros

    Credit Suisse is a good company to work with, with good support around internal mobility and flexible work hours although long hours. Also offers work from home flexibility. If you are lucky, you may get to work on good technologies with free hand to suggest open source ones. Unnecessary processes won't come in between to stop your proposal like many other places.

    Cons

    Absence of strong HR & policies and many things are left with managers to decide that brings huge subjectivity. If you are true believer of work and want your work to speak, this could be a wrong place to work as everything is decided by your manager including your salary - that's so bad - think what if you are not in the good books of your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Please make this place transparent by written & published policies/ controls and don't leave everything on managers to decide. Please have a working strong HR presence in partnership with the departments.
