Pros: rewards and appreciations
from the first day in Credit Suisse every day was a challenging day as we need to be quick in processing. Have got cross trained with other departments like Payroll and Off boarding. Have won lot many rewards for my performances. Have completed 5 main projects and successfully implemented them.
Everyday the team is required to conduct client due diligence review of client population to ensure that the information maintained provides a comprehensive understanding of the client's profile and proposed transactional activity in accordance to local law and regulations and the Bank's policies. The type of checks and processes we performed for each – more... account are similar but the scenarios and background might change the outcome of each case.

Presentation Analyst (Current Employee), London, ENG – July 10, 2013
Pros: work is easy
Cons: no opportunities for progression
people are friendly and helpful and the work is very easy. I come in at 5pm and give the coordinator a call asking if there is any work. There usually is so I start working on a Word document or Powerpoint presentation. Sometimes this can be creating or formatting charts, organisational charts, timelines, client style presentations. It can involve copying – more... or typing large amount of data, both text and numbers and modifying colours / charts / objects. Completing one request usually takes c.2 hours and then I move on to the next. I learnt how to edit documents and proofread making sure everything is correct. – less

Product Manager (Current Employee), New York, NY – July 3, 2013
Pros: great balance, great facilities, great gym with classes for tough lunchtime workouts.
Cons: remote management for all but about 18 months of my time with the company, tough to advance career.
Lucky enough to be working on an initiative that has really made a difference to the firm globally; tying together so many aspects of security into the infrastructure architecture and delivering to clearly defined milestones and dates. The program is huge with global horizontal scope and vertically touching everyone from the teams who configure the – more... devices to delivery of reports to the executive board. – less
Stressful Work Environment but Manageable and Easy for Me
Test Manager (Current Employee), Changi Business Park – June 30, 2013
Pros: salary, shift allowance
Cons: little career growth
A typical day at work is 90% meetings and 10% for doing the actual work. The meetings are mostly aimed just at status reporting and there is a tendency that same status will get reported for different meetings and to different individuals. Because of this it is common for people to stay late and on weekends to try to finish the majority of the work – more... left out because of the meetings.
I've learned in this company that sometimes we have to just gather our courage and leave our comfort zone. That is why I am actively looking for a new job because I feel that growth is no longer possible here. In short, my career has reached the end of the road here.
The most enjoyable part of the job in Credit Suisse are the salary, shift allowance, and new office. Also, personally, I am happy working with my Singapore colleagues whom I've been working with since 2009. Our relationship has gone beyond just work and we are all friends now.
The problem right now with Credit Suisse also is the fact that no one is sure about his/her career now. I personally have been promised promotions since 2009 but nothing has happened. In fact, since 2009 my rating has been AAA (best rating possible in CS). But even with me performing the career growth aspect never materialized. – less
