    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun and collegial environment, smart people.

    Cons

    There is yet no real thought process around retaining women at the bank long-term and at senior levels. The lack of flexibility in working schedules puts too much pressure on working mothers. There is also not enough support for women in general.

    Advice to Management

    Better long-term promotion opportunities for women beyond at mid-level. Less face time, more flexibility for working mothers.
