Employee - Vice President

It was not a place to go to get any formal training since everything I learned was on the job. At the time, I was not very impressed with their IT or analytical tools for modeling, but I suspect that changed. It also might be that major offices (London, NY) are better set up.

Employee - Vice President

Fantastic work assignments in a challenging environment. I was able to work internationally in multiple European markets and learn how to value various healthcare companies. I was able to use my multiple languages daily.

Employee - Vice President

Like most investment banks, work is expected pretty much 24-7. That said, I learned a tremendous amount but at a certain point with two children, I wanted to see my family sometimes. I was sorry to leave the environment of some very exciting deals and smart colleagues but there was no way to really have that type of work (M&A) and some reasonable family time.

Employee - Vice President

company should have decision making at leadership levels - less matrix

Employee - Vice President

Will get you to other investment banks - job offers easily

Employee - Vice President

Nice pay- flexible work life balance

Employee - Associate

Good place to work. But it seems that the company does not adopt meritocracy. More relies on number of years of experience and so on in promotions rather than on recognising potential which is observed in other investment banks.

Employee - Vice President

Stiff and bureaucratic, but not as bad I think as a larger place like Citigroup.

Employee - Associate

I would change the culture and behavior of mid level employees (associates and VPs)

Employee - Associate

the company has a pushy and superficial culture; the client has to be at the centre of the service.

Employee - Associate

corporate finance, deal structuring and negotiations, knowledge in macroeconomics are important to know in the company

Employee - Associate

like in every investment bank -- man-culture dominated, aggressive but still a nice place to work.

Employee - Vice President

Needs improved Systems and bureaucracy

Employee - Senior Vice President

Culture was very territorial. Every person out for themselves as opposed to a team approach.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Managing directors do not want you to disagree with them.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Territorial. Managing directors were most concerned with maximizing their bonus as opposed to building core systems or employee development for the long term.

Employee - Senior Vice President

They hire talent. If they interview you and offer you a job / you're top quality

Employee - Senior Vice President

Highly intelligent, innovative and hard working. These are smart admirable people who hold themselves to high expectations and high quality work product.

Employee - Vice President

CS has not changed keeping with times. Perhaps it has lost its identity due to poor hiring practices and stagnant growth. Credit Suisse is stuck in Flinstone's era.

Employee - Vice President

Change the culture or this great brand will die.
