the company has a Lack of accountability

Employee - Vice President

Management needs to change

Employee - Vice President

MDs are elitist

Employee - Vice President

Dysfunctional culture

Employee - Managing Director

the company needs to determine mission and have everyone be able to give an elevator speech on it. Practice diversity.

Employee - Managing Director

Path is changing so might be a more inclusive and professional organization in the future.

Employee - Managing Director

Many are out for themselves instead of working like a well-oiled machine or in unity.

Employee - Vice President

Comp is way down. Morale is not good.

Employee - Vice President

It has the potential to be a great place to work at. Talented staff but no solid direction.

Employee - Vice President

Morale is bad. Good people but poor leadership. Direction of the Firm changes along with the strategy.

Employee - Group Managing Director and/or Partner

Needs a new strategy

Employee - Vice President

There is a complete lack of direction which is being addressed now by the new head. previously i found that the MD's were pretty much treating the firm as their own personal piggy bank, taking questionable positions and exposures to generate fees. there was a lack of transparency, so much so that mgmt could not see what the complete exposure single traders had across multiple products due to lack of communication between various trading platforms. now the new head is trying to get away from investment banking to focus on asset management. he should split them apart, as well as keeping the retail side of CS separate since the risk profiles of all 3 are so different.

Employee - Vice President

its an investment bank, and like any IB, it plays a game of musical chairs with assets and whoever misses out on sitting in a chair when the music starts gets stuck with holding a bag of shit. they say that IB's are an efficient way of channeling capital from those that have it to those that need it, but if it was truly efficient there wouldnt be so much money left on the table that goes into Banker's pockets. its a hustle across the industry.

Employee - Vice President

Just like any other IB, people are afraid to speak out from fear of losing their jobs. although a swiss bank, the IB is pretty much run out of london with lots of expats from there coming to the usa but very minimal expats from the usa going to the uk.

Employee - Senior Vice President

There's so much management turmoil it's hard to know what to change or how to attempt it.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Take the best they have to offer but be prepared not to last.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Management turnover, management too invasive, impossible to define the firm's culture.

Employee - Vice President

Continual restructuring/department realignment/reorganization across much of the bank creates short- and long-term career uncertainty too high. The tone from the top seems to be shifting frequently in response to the short-term market environment instead of long-term firm growth.

Employee - Vice President

Professional growth opportunities are there for everyone who will seize them and demonstrate competence, but until its top level of senior management stabilizes and can stick to a comprehensive vision for the firm, long-term job retention or promotion within the firm is somewhat shaky.
