    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Solid ultra high net worth customer base globally, after all this is a Swiss bank

    Cons

    Mgmt eats their words. Middle managers have no power to give promotions or bonuses as they see fit. They burn people out and replace after people quit.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the people in the front lines, the engineers and even middle managers, so they can live up to their potential. Higher pay is desperately needed.

  10. "Loved my time there."

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues -- smart, creative, collegial. I had many opportunities to move around in different roles over the years and learned a lot. (Not sure that's still the case, in the current climate.) Excellent benefits, including maternity leave. Emphasis on "giving back"; plenty of volunteering opportunities. The 5-star rating reflects my overall experience at CS.

    Cons

    The strategic reduction of US- and EMEA-based businesses means there are fewer opportunities in these regions. There have been many rounds of layoffs.

    Pros

    entrepreneurial, frank and open door policy

    Cons

    Painful restructuring, ambiguous compensation communication, overly political & uneven promotion process across the desk, job security concerns

    Advice to Management

    too much uncertainty, political infighting, focus much more analytics
