    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great starting salary as an analyst, which sets you up for your future career - Interesting to work with high level executives

    Cons

    - Experience can be very dependent on the Associate / VP that you work for - Extremely demanding hours; don't underestimate the impact this has on your life

    Advice to Management

    Making analysts work 90+ hour weeks is completely unsustainable - particularly when bonuses are not what they used to be.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked as an Investment Banking Analyst - Very high quality training for junior employees - Pay is at top end of comparable positions - High quality deal flow and clients

    Cons

    - Very structured and somewhat bureaucratic given its size - Very long hours - Not enough done to promote a strong internal culture and retain employees

    Advice to Management

    In an investment bank your people are the key asset so retaining and encouraging the best of them is a fundamental part of your role as a manager. Unfortunately, the managers do not see this as a primary part of their role and this is short sighted in my view.

      Pros

      Very great junior community within the bank. Nice office with great amenities. Bank has an overall good culture across its different geographies.

      Cons

      Management too busy to see what is going on in their teams. Should be more hands on rather than delegating to staffers and COOs

      Advice to Management

      be more hands on
