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

    Pros

    Pay and hands on experience of IB world

    Cons

    Drinking culture in the office (people would get "ice" and have to drink up to 5 smirnoffs before client meetings) and unprofessionalism by employees. Hit on by a senior level employee. Not given work because I was not from a top recruit school (and flat out told that). When I asked for things to do I was told to stop asking (waited 3 days of sitting at my desk while the guy next to me got staffed on 3 projects)... It keeps going

    Advice to Management

    The IB team needs to look at the employees running the intern program and vet them better.

    Pay the people who put the work in. Not everyone should get paid the same.
