Pros

Good working environment
Positive culture
Meaningful, non-contrived work
Learning opportunities (eg programming)
Senior management are interested in what graduates have to say

Cons

Some aspects of mentality wrt the way things are done - the company is trying to change these for the better but progress is slow which can be frustrating. Inefficient methods are hanging on in places

Advice to Management

Continue to encourage graduates to be ambitious, but don't suggest that everyone will become a world-beater - that's unrealistic and creates false expectations which will ostensibly not be met from ~5 years down the line

    I worked at Credit Suisse as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My time at CS was structured and as an intern, I was able to maintain a good work/life balance. The team was warm and welcoming, and very helpful at moments where I struggled. The diverse backgrounds of all the people I encountered at CS really opened my eyes to what I can bring to the table.

    Cons

    As an intern, I did not really get to participate in much of the actual work. It was mostly observation/assistance based.

    I have been working at Credit Suisse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is great and bonus is fairly consistent at a junior level. Benefits are also good and lots of options for internal mobility including on an international scale

    Cons

    Working hours can be quite intense, especially during execution phase...! Teams differ significantly in terms of work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Ensure a better work-life balance in order to entice the best talent and highest-performing graduates. There are many competing alternatives nowadays!
