      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Credit Suisse full-time

      Pros

      World class expertise in certain areas, including Leveraged Finance, Financial Sponsors, Equity Capital Markets, Technology and Consumer & Retail,

      Cons

      Very slow moving, bureaucratic and committee oriented at the expense of client responsiveness and relationships. Capital constraints and return thresholds, as well as quality of people relative to other banks make being competitive in certain business lines impossible.

      Advice to Management

      Stop trying to be all things to all people with a significant capital constraints in a hyper competitive industry. Management should be much more ruthless and proactive about shutting down under performing business lines and geographies to concentrate its bets where the franchise legitimately has a compelling reason to exist and be a leader.
