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

    Pros

    Great location, solid benefits, strong salary raises in front office, does not have a stuffy attitude. Internally mobility is a great idea, just may be harder than it appears

    Cons

    Declining culture, layoffs seems never ending, there are 0 "perks" like free lunch (unless paid for out of someone's own pocket), many good employees are leaving for other firms.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more!! Also, please fix the elevators

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

    Pros

    Great people and collaboration, diversity of staff is leading edge, outstanding international product mix with emphasis on wealth management taking shape. A Swiss bank with employees having strong principles and solid morale compass.

    Cons

    C-suite management works in a bubble, needs to better communicate and lead the strategy execution with the troops; good people that understand collaboration and getting things done are being let go to simply cut costs.

    Advice to Management

    Group Board needs to ensure strategy remains on track, instead of letting Executive management change up strategy on regular basis.

    Pros

    When I was there I my coworkers were great. Positive, mentally healthy people who cared about doing a good job. Some bureaucracy but could always be overcome by people who know how to get stuff done. My best job in finance.

    Cons

    I was downsized shortly after the new CEO come on. There have been several rounds of layoffs since. I'm told it has impacted the culture and atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Downsizing may be necessary but please be careful of impacting the culture.
