Does Credit Suisse offer massages?

Pros

Coffee and fruits twice a week

Cons

They give you no physical PC but a virtual protesis of a PC with single monitor. Every simple task at Credit Suisse is complicated as much as possible. "Poor quality" is their domain. After working for few other major banks I must admit CS is most unorganized place. It's like working place for most incompetent people in the world. If you consider applying for a job there think it through, wether you want to achieve anything or just waste time and get paid for it.

Advice to Management

Hire experienced people and pay them well for doing your job! But make sure they do your work.

Does Credit Suisse have a sabbatical or career break policy?

Pros

Great heath and dental, decent 401k contribution, fantastic PTO (vacation, sick, maternity, sabbatical, etc.), multiple employee diversity networks, and a shiny new campus in Raleigh.

Cons

Offers are incredibly low, it’s actually almost embarrassing for an international investment bank. The same applies to raises and bonuses, no matter how favorable your performance evaluations were. Diversity and inclusion is just not there yet, especially in Raleigh. I was such a fan of the “culture” and push for “diversity and inclusion” and I ate all of it up but the fact is, the diversity numbers are flat and retention of diverse employees is dismal, likely because they also only promote the same types of people. Not to mention everyone at the top pretty much looks the same. There’s sort of a mix in the middle and at the bottom but not really. Most who have any power or influence are w/m, with a w/f sprinkled in here and there. Employees basically go unsupported by ER because guess what, it’s not illegal to be backwards, ignorant, or a bigot, nor do they consider it a fireable offense. If you stick your neck out on the line just know that your career is over at the firm - they will not lay a safety net out for you and you will be labeled “problematic.” Internal mobility is nearly impossible if you don’t have someone on the inside. You will also never truly get any objective feedback on why you weren’t given an opportunity.

Advice to Management

Actually pay people what they’re worth. You will not have a great reputation much longer if you keep offering people measly wages barely above the poverty line. Promote from within, instead of hiring managers almost exclusively from outside the firm. Make the promotion process equitable and attainable for all employees, across all divisions. It’s impossible to compare the accomplishments of employees fairly if opportunity is not available to all. Provide independent coaching to those within the nomination process because managers are coaching and grooming who they like instead of providing guidance to those who deserve it. Just because an employee or manager hasn’t done anything illegal, doesn’t mean they are a good example of the culture the company is trying to promote or the workforce it’s trying to retain. Cut ties with bad managers, instead of sticking by them simply because they’re managers. “Courageous conversations” are pointless when they will fall on tone deaf ears and employees won’t truly be protected when they report wrongdoing or interactions against company policy.
