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

Pros

Still has some good 'old school' high calibre people, still very strong/top tier in specific areas of IBD and capital markets. Still offers good exit opps.

Cons

Best people are rapidly leaving the firm, no longer as good as it was in a number of areas, is falling down the ranks. Swiss regulatory issues don't help either.

Advice to Management

Seems like there is too much change in strategy at too high a frequency.

    Protect the employees, please

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

    Pros

    The people are nice and mostly capable at what they are doing. Good work culture where almost everyone is helpful and willing to assist you even though it's outside their formal responsibility.

    Cons

    Cost-cutting and outsourcing measures being implemented everywhere, often by not taking into account the effect of such measures on surrounding business units / departments / systems. As a result there's a lot of human capital loss and performance degradation.

    Advice to Management

    Be more careful in cutting costs / outsourcing business units. Although the target numbers are achieved there may be repercussions in the future.
