Senior Level (Former Employee) – Singapore – March 5, 2018
A key competitive advantage of Credit Suisse is our ability to bring all the resources of the bank together for our clients – combining our key strengths in private banking with our leading capabilities in equities, fixed income, corporate finance and asset management. Across boundaries and divisions, we deliver a compelling proposition for clients looking to access a full spectrum of our best products and capabilities to help them expand their businesses, as well as protect and grow their wealth.
Vice President (Current Employee) – Singapore – December 27, 2017
Overly rigid, overly hierarchical, old fashioned bank. There are no visionaries here, just politicians. This is not a place for those who seek professional development. A poorly managed institution who cloaks this by describing itself as "an entrepreneurial" organisation.
If you are a blue-eyed Swiss you will be taken care of (politically as well as job security wise).
Expect no direction from Management (MDs and Directors), as they are out to protect themselves and nothing more. The culture (as such exists) is basically a "free-for-all" where you sink or swim on your own.
The pay is good and colleagues (VP and below) are great. A good place to park for a couple of years, collect a good salary and then move on.
Good brand on your CV, good salary, great colleagues
Poor management, way too much politics, "The Swiss Way"
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Singapore – September 26, 2017
Great place to work! Great management. I didn't want to leave but a personal event forced me to go back to my home country. If I had to work in the banking industry again I would definitely apply for a job at Credit Suisse.

Good place to learn Enterprise Risk Management in CRO. Workplace culture is good and balanced. Management is supportive of new initiatives, specially Chief Risk Officer. The new organization structure is creating few challenges but should get stabilize for few years.
