    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time

    Pros

    I last worked at Credit Suisse in 2011. I worked with great colleagues there. The firm was created from the former First Boston and Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette. They merged in about 2000.

    Cons

    Most of the people I worked with at Credit Suisse are no longer with the firm. Thee are many excellent alumni across Wall Street. Credit Suisse stock is a fraction of where it was when I worked there from 2009-2011.

    Advice to Management

    Credit Suisse continues to evolve. Management should focus on those businesses that have he lowest risk relative to the potential returns on capital. It's wealth management business in Europe generally fits this bill.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay, some co-workers are great - professionally, but are also personable

    Cons

    Moving around the company isn't easy, a lot of layoffs and lack of direction have led to declining morale in recent years

    Advice to Management

    Need direction and motivation. If employees can't see why changes are being made and they're disincentivized through a changed rating system / compensation, then they won't work hard and will leave
