    Good but over reliant on offshore contractors and consultancies

    I have been working at Credit Suisse as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people, permanent staff tend to be highly experienced on multiple areas and very interested in the industry.
    Internal mobility is promoted, included on a temporary basis to enable an analyst to gain hands on business experience
    Taking credit for others work is heavily frowned upon at all levels. Even borrowed illustrations in informal PowerPoint docs have credit given.
    Interesting variety of work. Technical managers try hard to match the work to the analyst's stated interests.
    On the job training by technical staff when given is of good quality and interesting. Senior analysts come from the business originally and so are able to answer most queries and provide good feedback.

    Cons

    Because of the amount of offshore temporary staff promotion opportunities 'platforms' tend to be in people and project management. This leads to 2 issues - technical staff leave as they have little chance of promotion and there is a lack of product and system specific knowledge at project onset which leads to delays.
    Analysis is often duplicated (Change and IT) in projects for political reasons (no doubt due to the promotion platform based on people management above). Recent organization structure changes have exacerbated this.
    Offshoring means that you will spend a substantial amount of time training new starters, and their replacements 6 months later.
    The over reliance on consultancies damages the morale of existing staff (who as a result lose out on opportunities for experience and cross firm contacts (often at FO or board level) as well as being demotivated by the pay differential) and leads to a catch 22 situation whereby the firm has to use consultancies when the existing staff have either left or have no knowledge of the area.
    There are very few senior (director/senior director) level analysts which means you can expect to get caught up in IT vs. business politics and have to be prepared to fight your own corner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use staff from all job lines (not just PM) for projects from the onset rather than allowing all technical knowledge to leave the building when the consultancies do.
