Credit Suisse is a great place to start a career in investment banking -- strong brand, strong mentorship, great people, momentum, competitive comp and international reach. But be prepared for long hours and often tedious work. If you're committed to IB out of school, seriously consider Credit Suisse as a starting point

Great people, access to senior people, lots of deal experience and responsibility immediately, extensive and thoughtful training

Downers

Really long hours

Comments

Banking is a tough job, but there's nowhere I'd rather be doing it - the culture and the people are really wonderful. Analysts are encouraged to learn about as much as they can, get lots of exposure to senior people, and are invited to as many client meetings as possible.

working on one of the strongest, global platforms in the industry with some of the smartest, most highly motivated people in the industry.

i think that a candidate must evaluate each firm not only by whether or not they would like to work here today, but would you like to be here for the next 10, 20, 30 years

my colleagues are great - the other members of my desk are just good people who i want to spend time with, and i trust them

Downers

the last few years have been challenging for the banking industry as a whole

Comments

if i were a candidate looking at various job offers and firms, i would consider two things... 1) how does senior mgmt view the recruiting and training program? you want to be at a firm which has managers committed to developing junior talent and helping you to build a career, as opposed to viewing new hires purely as there to do the job for a few years; 2) i would consider the experiences of recent hires - do they feel invested in the firm, do they respect their colleagues, and are building a foundation of core skills that position them to move up in the organization. 5-10 years ago it was very common to choose a job with the intention of spending 2 years there and then moving on, but i think today it is very relevant to consider if the job is one in which you can see yourself learning and growing over the longer term.
