How do you expect to keep young talent if you pay all the 1st and 2nd years the same amount? They will leave for the buy-side or to competitors

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

    Pros

    Overall it's more laid back than e.g. Morgan Stanley or Goldman. There's plenty of freedom to innovate when replacing legacy systems. The location in Madison Square is excellent in terms of great food options all around.

    Cons

    For reasons unbeknownst some people take a "principled unhelpfulness" position. The constant rounds of layoffs are unfair and random. Lots of hurry up and wait on all projects, all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Being cheap with pay caused many of my CS friends to leave firm, work elsewhere for more, and then reenter CS at a higher salary level. Obviously a waste.
