As one of the largest financial institutions in the world, Credit Suisse has an abundance of internal mobility opportunities, including offices in almost every major city in the world. The people are intelligent and driven. Collaborative working environment is encouraged.

To succeed at Credit Suisse, you should have a good grasp on your career goals, a strong work ethic, and ability to work well with others on a consistent basis.

CS Operations Americas

3.0 of 5 stars

September 2015 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

great place to gain experience and learn the life cycle of a trade, ability to work with global colleagues and do impactful work and take on responsibility if you want it

Downers

lots of acronyms to learn and sometimes slow decision making structure like any large global firm, high turnover

Comments

salaries are not as high as in some competitors but the benefits are pretty good, easy to be a top performer and outshine your peers if you pay attention, ask good questions, and don't mind putting in a few extra hours a couple of times a week

It has been five years and I still love coming to work. I feel that I am constantly learning and growing which is an important part of any job.

Comments

Credit-Suisse is an outstanding firm and a great place to launch or continue a career. The people are what makes this place great and it is an incredibly collaborative culture. This isn't a firm where people step on each other to get ahead nor is that behavior tolerated or respected - if that's how you operate, CS might not be the best fit.
