Comments

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

Culture of our office is second to none on Wall Street

Would look at culture on a group by group (or office by office) basis as it differs greatly.

In IBD coverage, Credit Suisse is execution focused relative to some other firms that outsource execution to product groups.
