The Credit Suisse Spring Insight Programme was outstanding, inspiring and educational. Each day was filled with a plethora of different presentations, real life job simulations and Q&A sessions which allowed me to fully grasp the culture at the Investment Bank and its operations. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to have all of my questions answered. This made me feel as if I was able to truly connect with the firm, despite the Covid-19 situation. I realised that Credit Suisse would be the perfect place for me in the future as each day would bring a new round of excitement!
My team did their best to ensure that the virtual experience was as similar to what the in person experience would have been which was really useful to help bond with the team. However, I think that it could've been improved if there were more opportunities to meet fellow interns in a more relaxed informal setting e.g. just more random breakout rooms done once a week because I didn't get to know many of them during my time there.
I really enjoyed doing the spring week at Credit Suisse as I was able to get a strong insight into the company. Throughout the four days, there were plenty of opportunities to meet current employees and chatting with them provided me with a lot of insight into the culture at Credit Suisse and what type of company they are. Also, I really enjoyed meeting the other participants and meeting people with similar interest s to me. It's a great way to meet like minded people.
I really enjoyed the internship as everyone was very approachable and also the structure of the internship was well organised. Though in a virtually setting, the work was just the same as it would have been in the office and the learning curve was as expected quite steep. Also the work itself was very interesting. There were several events during the internship which allowed me to meet other interns also in a virtual setting. Overall i very much enjoyed this opportunity.
I really loved every minute of the internship! It was very engaging and interactive, I gained a lot of insight, and so much advice. Everyone was very helpful and open to providing guidance throughout. I gained a lot of technical experience as well as developing my soft skills which has been great!
I thoroughly enjoyed it. Credit Suisse really overcame the issue of not meeting people in real life (virtual internship), by organising quizzes. The internship was really hard work at times, with some long hours, but the amount I learnt during this internship makes that perfectly reasonable. In normal circumstances, I would have enjoyed it a tiny bit more if we were in the office. However, this was not possible and Credit Suisse really made up for it.
Overall I enjoyed my time here but I wished I had done more work. Indeed the internship being virtual it was more challenging than what I thought it would be. Because of the special circumstances the workload was also slow. It was harder to connect with the team and more difficult to reach out to people. Every document we would send was considered as final work and it was quite hard to get everything right the first time. MoreoverI personnaly encountered a lot of IT issues which wasn't of any help...
I had the opportuntiy to complete the Investment Banking Summer Associate program in July 2020 and I have to say that it was one of the most impactful internship experiences I have had. The HR team puts a lot of care into developing an interesting scheduled filled with different social and educational events to show everything that Credit Suisse has to offer as a company. It was very comprehensive and well thought out!
I really enjoyed the virtual experience in spite of the communcational challenges in the very begininng of the internship. However, it was really good implemented and I think that I had the required IT infrastrucutre and guidance from the team to deliver work and learn as much as if I were in the office. I am grateful for this experience and I think that I had the opportunity to learn a lot and to understand what Investment Banking looks like in real life.
The program was well organized despite the virtual structure. The HR team organized a lot of events that were useful to meet other interns as well as the entire campur recruitment team. Everyone has been really kind and resourceful during the entire internship. Avery person in the team reached out during the first weekes for an intro call and this allowed me to begin the intership in the best way possible. The IT support has been really good and fast.
