Pros

Well renumerated and I gained a great deal of experience in a fast paced high pressure enviroment.
Good place to gain exposure to many aspects of the business

Cons

The working culture can be a bit brutal where personal survival and neopotism seems to trump the greater goals of the business
Long long hours

Advice to Management

Allow the teams to do what they do best, cut a few people from the top. You have a very talented pool of staff if you would just let them work.

    Change is constant and sometimes one change is not complete before a new one begins
    Egos can sometimes get in the way of good work

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to listen, your people know what to do.
    Walk the talk, there is a lot of "do as I say, not as I do" happening

    Pros

    the best part of working at Credit Suisse is the people. my co-workers and the investment bankers are appreciative, there is a collegial environment, and i felt like a valued member of the team.

    Cons

    Credit Suisse suffers from poor management -- and as they continue to cull their support staff functions this will only be exacerbated.

    Advice to Management

    my advice to upper management would be to talk to the "man on the street" -- the remaining folks below manager level who are there who are working as fast and as hard as they can. they can often problem-solve solutions better than their managers, and are a great resource to fix big picture problems that will continue to plague the financial services industry, i suspect, for a long time. it's too bad you have cut so many talented, smart people (myself among them) but i had a great, very long run at Credit Suisse, and will remember and value the experience my whole life.
