Former Employee - Investment Banking Vice-President in London, England (UK)

I worked at Credit Suisse full-time for more than 3 years

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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
