Good people, unfortunately tough times

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Lots of opportunity for to learn and some inspiring people and leaders. As with all big companies can be some resistance to change and lack of ownership and responsibility.

used to be great

Used to have a great collaborative culture. Post merger announcement things have been chaotic and management is in survival mode and toxic. No longer a meritocracy

Good coporate culture with nice people

Good coporate culture and nice working environment. Management has a strong vision and communcations are clear to all employee. People are generally nice and deliver high quality of services. As a new joiner, learning path could be steep as IT and operation systems are decoupled and proprietary. Lack of documentation and self-contained team structure could be challenge for any new joiners. Risk management are something need to be improved.


Nice people, Good and healthy working environment, Open and fair corporate culture, Compensation and benefit are generally


Technologies and systems are relatively outdated comparing to industry peers, Working hours are long, Career progression is slow.

Productive and great working environment

It's a very fast pace environment. Most employees seems happy with work load and have a balance lifestyle. It's one of the best places I have worked.


Free lunch and the pay was good


Always have to dress business formal. Travelling was too far

Les gens sont agréables, pas la culture

Grande qualité des gens travaillant dans cette entreprise, cependant la culture et la bureaucratie l’emporte sur tout business development.

A great experience with many oppurtunities

I learnt a huge amount during my time at Credit Suisse. Not only was a presented with a huge number of learning and networking opportunities, but everyone who worked there was hugely welcoming and willing to offer help at every oppurtunity.

A Bank and Swiss: Are you surprised?

CS are hardly known for exciting, blue-knuckle fun. They are a very conservative organisation. They are also very slow to change, and change is really only allowed for the build-the-bank side, and if you happen to be on the run-the-bank side, good luck. That being said, their managment is solid, their processes generally work, and there is really a lot to be said for that. And the canteen at Canary Wharf is good, I recommend the omlette bar.

Dynamic and fast paced investment bank.

Leading investment bank that developed complex risk testing models to provide regulatory reporting to the FCA. Globally distributed team. Helped move from waterfall to agile ways of working.

Busy and challenging

My roles at Credit Suisse were extremely busy, challenging and demanding but I enjoyed the daily work and responsibilities. All roles have come with extreme responsibility but both my current and ARM roles have been challenging due to the AML and KYC demands and SOW in High risk countries.

Good and friendly work environment though annual review nòt very useful. If you work for the right team and under the right management there all is fine but when changes come they do not look at your wishes but just have to meet the requirements e.g making employees redundant if they have to reduce number of employees - no job security

Fast paced and challenging

Being an Investment Bank, Credit Suisse can be a challenging environment to work in, but the staff there are great and helps each other out during tough times and are sociable outside of work hours.

Good work colleagues poor high level management

Company was trying to change direction and cut costs hence a lot of turmoil often keenly felt by the teams trying to run BAU. Cultural could be a bit paternalistic.

Unrewarding, no matter what hours worked or length of service. Line managers surrounded by yes men. Always trying to match other Swiss Banks without success.

Great institution

I would highly recommend working for Credit Suisse. It is very diverse and fair with a great work-life balance. Newly refurbished office space also a plus

Insightful experience

Completed work experience with the sales team with trades whilst working in the Fixed Income – FX Sales Department. Worked on and executed deals with the FX sales team to clients like Autobus and observed how these deals would be assessed by the Credit Risk Management Department afterwards.
