Stressful and intimidating workplace.
Product Controller (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJanuary 11, 2017
As a resent graduate I was beyond excited to join the Credit Suisse team. As an young and energetic person with a lot of potential I was hoping this is the right first step in building my career with them. Unfortunately, very soon after joining the Product Control Department I realized that the culture and atmosphere in the office is not very welcoming. The procedures of how to do the job and actual training were almost non-existing, you were expected to find your own way and push buttons and not ask questions. The software systems and the databases/shared drives used always had issues on a daily basis and when you have strict deadlines it is very difficult to chase, make phone calls and resolve a problem with IT in the time you need which adds more to the stress and the dissatisfaction of the job overall. The collaboration in the team I was placed in was under critical level and I could not believe such environment could exist within the actual good name of the Bank. Management was unapproachable and arrogant. If there is no communication and interest to help each other, then how would the team go forward and be proud of its achievements? "Everybody for themselves" attitude is not acceptable in today's world and definitely not a place I would want to be a part of.
Pros
Maternity leave 20 weeks paid, big office space
Cons
Lack of communication, collaboration, team building exercises, training.

No advancement
Data Warehouse Architect / Developer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 9, 2017
In order to advance you have to leave the company and come back at a higher position. People less qualified hired new have a better salary and position. Manage often used the F word at night support. Useless steps to put things into production. However at night support people sometimes made major changes. These changes were not reviewed next day and were not put in source control.
Pros
No micro amnagement
Cons
No advancement

Program Management Office Lead (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 28, 2016
Good company to work for. Have many consultants and pay well although they did go through a pay cut for all contractors; promise of full time conversion never panned out. Would definitely go back.

Difficult and exciting work, but culture not the best
Analyst, Mergers & Acquisitions Group (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 23, 2016
Junior morale gets to be pretty low at times, however the amount of analysts in your class helps out. Most people rationalize tough lifestyle with high pay and fact that it's a two and out type of job.

No work life balance
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCDecember 20, 2016
I suppose it is a good place for entry level folks, but there is no career potential after that. The minimum is 3 years before even eligible for promotion. Expect to work 10 to 12 hour days. Financial systems are terribly deficient so the manual work arounds take a lot of time. The only good thing is the benefits are better than most. Also, the RTP locations are given last priority over oversees locations and NY in terms of budget.
Pros
great heath benefits, overtime and paid time off
Cons
terrible work life balance, long work days

Horrendous quality of life and general work environment. They continue to lay people off at the bank and now everyone that is left has to do the job of 3 + people.
