Once a great place to work
Director Legal & Compliance (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Zürich, ZH – 5. August 2018
Credit Suisse was my client for many years. Credit Suisse recruited me at a director level position and Senior Legal & Compliance officer. Credit Suisse was a great place to work when I joined in 2011 and had a great work culture for much of the time I worked there, but after 4 reorganizations in 7 years and massive cost cutting initiatives things changed, there were complete changes of management, the various reorganizations caused severe disruption to day to day work flow and took too long to implement without strategic direction from senior management. Experienced staff were pushed out and replaced with junior, low cost alternatives without requisite training and development of the junior staff and there was not a good succession planning or handover of know-how. The sense of valuing employees culture has changed to a cut-throat environment. Credit Suisse seems to lack strategic direction from the top down.
