    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Credit Suisse

    Pros

    Good hours for an IB, flexible work arrangement available, somewhat more relaxed than other IB environments, friendly work environment, good office location

    Cons

    All about deployment and cost cutting, not had an increase in comp for years, claims they value human capital but can't see that in action, as far as middle/back office is concerned, they are all about deploying as much as possible to India and Poland. Staff in those regions have much more career opportunities and increases in comp than NY or London based staff. Low morale, static management, outdated IT systems... makes the work more difficult than it needs to be. They let talented people leave, and are replaced by incompetent middle management. Also they try to push "grow your own" and "internal mobility" when in fact senior mgmt positions are often recruited from rival firms.

    Advice to Management

    Don't harp on about human capital when nothing is done to boost morale or keep talented staff.

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Remote work -International work environment -Quite challenging -Good benefits -Good pay -Ability to change role after a year -Sabbatical after 5 years(yes, even in Poland) I have a great line manager that does a very good job at keeping all the corporate activities away from me. This may not always be the case.

    Cons

    I don't really see any cons, it depends on your team and role. Maybe too many organizational meetings. You need good english, not a con for me, but probably for some people.
