Not a great working environment
Strategy and Execution Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 17, 2019
Credit Suisse is a typical investment bank culture. If you are not in banking or sales desk then you are viewed as a non-producer which means you are easily replaceable and not important. Ive had several roles and enjoyed most if them really due to my manager. but vision of the firm is quite diluted and not well communicated.
Pros
Managers
Cons
Vision not well incorporated or communicated

Vice President of Operations (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 14, 2019
Compliance AML is a time sensitive culture that reports have to be filed on a timely basis with FinCEN. Work is never ending and as well demanding. People are terrific and willing and able to assist and offer their knowledge. Wonderful group to work with.
Pros
The people
Cons
No Coffee

Worst bank on the planet
AVP (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJanuary 10, 2019
No identity and ZERO core competencies; failing trading business is worst in industry and being dissolved further by the day. Costs are unconscionably cut EVERYWHERE - this may be the cheapest company in history. It hires nothing but bottom-barrel talent. Every skilled worker has quit or been fired to employ the lowest cost labor possible. UNETHICAL employees are rampant and morale is at absolute rock bottom.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

Good place to start
LEGAL DUE DILIGENCE ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Raleigh-Durham, NCJanuary 8, 2019
Offer a lot of entry level contract positions that can lead to full time hire. They like to hire from within so starting as a contractor is the best way to get your foot in the door.

Good people with good managers. Nicely structured place where people have a chance to succeed. Overall, at least a chance to get promoted, though not easy

Overall experience
Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 4, 2019
It was a great learning experience during my junior years which prepared well for my position at BAML. Credit Suisse truly is a global company. Every year we had an FP&A offsite with the members from all the different offices around the world. Everyone came together and shared ideas, and some were implemented.

Poor Compensation
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Raleigh-Durham, NCJanuary 4, 2019
I worked for Credit Suisse for 13 years where my compensation steadily decreased following the post Lehman collapse. Bonus decreased significantly over that time period with only two cost of living promotions over that same time period.

great corporate culture
Consultant & Controls Sr. Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCDecember 13, 2018
The company was going through transformation and some employees seemed to feel uneasy about this. The corporate culture is good in spite of some departments not being collaborative and collegial.

Terrible Pay Great Benefits
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCNovember 21, 2018
Stressed internal mobility but I don't believe my group's management really bought into it. The pay was low but the benefits were life changing. Would think it would be a great place to start off or go back to.

Executive Assistant - CST (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 14, 2018
Credit Suisse is a friendly environment, sitting in a smart working area where you are able to meet/sit with various people on daily basis. A typical day would entail calendar management, travel arrangements, expenses, on-boarding of incoming employees, reservations of conference rooms.
Pros
Health Club / Health Facility
Cons
No cons

Employees are extremely friendly
Front-End Developer (Current Employee) –  Raleigh-Durham, NCNovember 13, 2018
Development time can be cut short by a bombardment of meetings on any given day. Technical vision is not bad but there's no centralized approach to meeting that vision.
