Stressful and intimidating workplace.
Product Controller (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – January 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.
