Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 17, 2018
I enjoy working here at Credit Suisse. It has given me a great opportunity to seek out another side of the business that I was not familiar with such as Cyber security related events. I have really enjoyed my time here and would recommend it to anybody who is looking to come on board.
Pros
Work from home, Great working people
Cons
Politics can get in the way

Managing Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 5, 2018
Credit Suisse is an excellent company and I was privileged to spend 19 years there. The firm provides ample opportunity for development and internal mobility. However, like a number of large organizations, employees can be treated as commodities when the business changes and layoffs are common.

A Place to Start Out
AVP (Former Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCJune 26, 2018
Office provides an opportunity for college graduates to get industry experience. Beyond that the environment is very rigid, employees are under paid, and hard work is not compensated or recognized.

Challenging work environment, but you'll learn to master your skills
Cloud Operations Engineer, Credit-Suisse, NY (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 12, 2018
the work environment is extremely challenging, and you'll want to automate much of your daily routine. The need to automate forces you to improve your programming and scripting.

For banking this is a good company, with dynamic environment and state of the art technology underway, or in transformation phase. They are expanding in the area, relocating people from NYC.

Good start for your career
Business IT Analyst (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMay 22, 2018
Joining Credit Suisse was my best decision after graduated. Credit Suisse offers the opportunities for fresh grads to learn and develop their skills with unlimited access to tools and resources. The culture here is cool and everyone is supportive. Compensation and benefits are competitive. My typical day would be on calls/meetings for half of the day and working on my personal tasks for the rest of the day. I like how they allow employees (depends on the departments but most can) to work from home.

Poor environment for work.
Business/Data Analyst, Migration Project (Beeline) (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 17, 2018
Open seating, single screens that guarantee headaches, they charge you for coffee!
It is clear that they would prefer robots to actual people.
Decent but expensive cafeteria.

CS has a great work life balance
Vice President of Operations (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 10, 2018
The current strategy does not seem to be working based on the stock price. I would expect us to be growing revenue not managing NOI based on layoffs and expense management.
Pros
Great culture
Cons
Comp too low

Room for improvement -Too many meetings
VP (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 10, 2018
There are too many meetings throughout the day forcing employees to work longer hours including working from home. This primarily effects those with kids and families. Work life balance needs leadership (i.e. It can be challenging to have work-life balance if your boss doesn't have any). The grass may not be greener though. Perhaps other companies are having the same issue.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with some great people. The hardest part of the job is getting your stuff done between the many meetings.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Need work/life balance.
