Layoffs Watch ’12: Credit Suisse

Cuts are expected to go down at the House Of BD.

Credit Suisse is eliminating 100 jobs at its investment banking operation in Britain as part of a cost-cutting program, according to a person with direct knowledge of the plan. The job cuts affect Credit Suisse’s equities and fixed-income divisions, said the person, who declined to be identified because the plan was not public. The step is part of the bank’s continuing $4.3 billion cost-reduction program.

    Well we did our best. Problem is, everyone here seems to think of themselves at the bottom.

    I think firing Brady Dougan would achieve significantly better cost savings and more improvement within CS.

    A client once asked what outside research we use and I said "Credit Suisse" and he thought I said "Craig's List"
