    I have been working at Credit Lyonnais Securities Asia full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can't think of any positives . Their offices looked very boring with an old tech stack and a pathetic HR .

    Cons

    Had been selected from college campus placements . After 3 months we were told that CLSA has revoked all placements in all colleges . This is very unprofessional and unfair . Had missed out on many other good companies in the meanwhile .

    Advice to Management

    Please don't go to colleges for placements if you don't intend to hire the students finally . You end up messing up their careers .

    Pros

    You eat what you kill...this is great if you're proactive...they reward well for individual efforts. Their Asian team is unparalleled, and global team work is fun and interesting.

    Cons

    This isn't a knock against CLSA, but there's a lot of competition with other firms, and it takes more effort to standout with clients since CLSA is not one of the bigger firms. That being said, clients who recognize CLSA's deep bench in Asia certainly value the firm's opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the unique perspective of CLSA and don't worry about the traditional rankings. Embrace the niche identity. Focus more on bringing the individual global teams together.

    Pros

    They hire you if you don't have a job. They basically have no standards at all. I have seen all kinds of incompetent people here. You just need to find a inside contact.

    Cons

    - Nobody absolutely nobody here wants to take up any responsibility or work. From HR to High ups. They just want to send a lot of mails suggesting they are busy. - You are not a human resource to them. You are a machine. - EQ here is 0. Its all dirty politics and absolutely 0 merit. - They will crush your soul and make you think you are worthless and don't deserve to be employed anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT SPOIL YOUNG PEOPLE'S FUTURE !! For God's sake !
