Wish I could stay
Business Analyst - (Contract) (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: work-life balance
Cons: offshoring, it is old
Besides the managers with closed offices, there are very few permanent Credit Suisse employees on my floor. It is a sea of contractors. Despite that, managers make good efforts in team building.

Office environment is pretty relaxed, very few greedy morons (for a bank), and the firm takes compliance very seriously.

If the firm was taking on full time – more... staff, I would be happy to stay. – less

Executive Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits, competitive salary, healthcare, gym and dry cleaners on site
Credit Suisse was an amazing place to work. They support employee growth and development and were willing to promote from within.

The department I worked in was well organized and shared team oriented goals. Their were no egos; it was just as easy to have a conversation with a Managing Director as it was another Executive Assistant.

Credit Suisse – more... was a great place to work and I would recommend to anyone looking for employment. – less

Increasingly poor management
Vice President (Former Employee), New York, NYDecember 18, 2013
Pros: nice location
Cons: management, lack of trust and collaboration, frequent layoffs
CS had a great working environment until recently where it has become a culture of distrust. Collaboration amongst teams is discouraged. The work in technology is now primarily focused on cost-reduction which has impacted a once revered company who focused on innovation and client needs. Sad to say that is no longer the case at CS.

executing trades for major finacial institutions on a large brokerage platform
Director, Senior Sales Trader (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 2, 2013
Pros: increased visibility among accounts and peers as part of new entity
Cons: tremendous pressure to assimilate 2 massive orginizations
A challenging environment where all team members had to maximize revenues and market share in a new, combined entity (CS merged w/ DLJ).

Co-works worked diligently to achieve uncommon results in what at the time was a a fiercely competitive financial landscape (other firms had gone through similar mergers.

The hardest part of the job was to assimilate – more... 2 strong cultures (though we did so well in the Chicago office).

I was the only member of DLJ invited to join sales trading in Chicago in the new entity. – less

Company is going through cost-cutting and it shows
Associate Research Analyst (Current Employee), New York, New YorkNovember 20, 2013
Credit Suisse's strategy is to keep and pay the few senior analysts who bring in the majority of revenue and cut costs on the rest of the staff -- from senior analysts in other segments to associates, etc. This even includes downgrading from factset to thomson reuters so that you cannot get real time quotes except if you go on google finance. And they – more... removed one of the two bloomberg terminals on the floor for general use.

Doesn't pay to work for a company in secular decline. – less

Challenging and Productive Workplace
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NYNovember 7, 2013
Credit Suisse is a challenging yet productive work environment, where I have had the pleasure of supportiing two MDRs and one Director.

A typical day for myself would be an 8am start and straight into calendar management and travel arrangements. These two were always top priority for my role.

My biggest challenge has been supporting two teams at one – more... time. I took the opportunity because I felt it would increase my chance of landing a permanant position, however it came to the point where I was at max capacity. Although my capacity was full, I was able to manage both roles in two different departments, and showed the true meaning of Business Continutiy. – less
