    I worked at Credit Suisse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some really smart people around

    Cons

    No budget to spend on IT division due to brutal cost cutting Managers simply commit delivery without having enough resources for it Toxic IT work environment - keep only 1 person to do work of 3 people Work on very outdated technologies - which ensures you can't work anywhere else Overworked staff Poor work life balance - 11/12 hour days are very common

    Advice to Management

    Increase IT spending, adopt latest technologies, improve work life balance of staff

    Pros

    Good salary, promotes internal mobility. Good IT infrastructure and some great staff who will go the extra mile to assist.

    Cons

    Serious cost cutting in recent years seen bonuses and promotions extremely difficult to come by. Senior management have little regard for their staff with an attitude of if you don't like it then move.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to consider employee welfare. Your loosing some great staff from your cost cutting policy.
