    Pros

    sick days, maternity leave, paternal leave ,flexible work hrs

    Cons

    promotion process is not properly defined, getting to next level takes years and very disappointing as there is no unique process, it all depends on the manager

    Advice to Management

    take acre of your best talent, most people leave Credit suisse because they are not able to move up to the next level and it takes years to get there

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome people, great work-life balance, great culture, strong investment in diversity, great opportunities to explore mobility to other roles internally
    Started my career here out of college and have grown so much professionally as well as met a ton of incredible people!

    Cons

    The analyst program lumps all Technology new college hires together for the same salary, which means that it may be more or less competitive to other offers depending on what you majored in in college.
    General sense that technology/back office is a 'lesser' role than front office/finance positions in the eyes of the firm as a whole.
    Lack of an Associate title in Technology means that new college hires have to wait 4+ years for a formal promotion, which gives a sense of a lack of upward mobility and stagnation and can be off-putting.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries in technology should be comparable to tech firms, not to other ops etc roles

    Add an associate title in technology for a sense of upward motion

    Important to align early on with senior bankers to continue to ensure appropriate staffing -as they request specific individuals. Otherwise can get sidelined and end up with not enough execution experience.
