I worked at Credit Suisse full-time (Less than a year)
Many internal networking opportunities, mobility.
The talented peers are easy to loose
I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Zürich (Switzerland)).
I had a really bad experience with Credit Suisse in Zurich. I applied for a position as a Head of department (in charge of team leads), Director level. I had 6 interviews, with 9 different people, over the course of 5 months. During the negotiation phase, I was presented with a typical "bait and switch" move, when I was informed that the role is now at the lower, VP level, in charge of other VPs. However, all the responsibilities, the high number of line-charges, and the remit of the position would stay the same, only for a lower salary and title.
The HR partner was insensitive, rude, and came across as untrustworthy and trying to force me into accepting the role with the changed conditions, without any explanation for the downgrade, despite repeated requests. Definitely not in line with Credit Suisse's claim of transparency as a core value.
I was left with no choice but to withdraw my candidacy after this glimpse into an environment that condones such behavior.
