Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Professional atmosphere, compensation scale is decent, employees treated with respect. Have been at Credit Suisse for over 2 years and find the work enjoyable.

Cons

The work culture varies from group to group. Some teams have good systems and procedures in place with a predictable work load, while others tend to be a bit chaotic. Promotions, pay raises etc., are too dependent on the group that you are in.

Advice to Management

Management team should be commended on the effort taken to solicit employee feedback. Effort should be taken to isolate and recognize individual contribution distinct from the overall team's performance. Promotion and internal mobility processes should have quicker turnaround cycles.
