VPs of Finance are the best paid with the average salary hovering at about $133K annually; Senior Business Analysts, IT Business Analysts, and Executive Assistants also rank near the top of the list, pulling in $105K, $92K, and approximately $70K, respectively. Operations Analysts make an average $43K, close to the bottom of the company pay scale.

Years of Experience

For those who claim five to nine years of work experience, pay on average amounts to around $74K per year. When we consider tenure, a substantial portion of employees (37 percent) have been working for one to four years and make $66K annually on average.


When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck ($100K per year) can be spotted in Miami, Fla.; Cary, N.C. ($89K), New York, N.Y. (about $89K), and Durham, N.C. (around $75K) are the next top-paying cities. Those interested in increasing earning potential should avoid the city of Raleigh, N.C. — at approximately $57K, salaries are some of the lowest in the country. Credit Suisse workers in Illinois earn the most — about $104K annually on average.

Certifications and Degrees

FINRA Series 7 General Securities Representatives earn approximately $125K per year, far more than their non-accredited counterparts. Becoming an Uniform Securities Agent State Law Holder can certainly pay off here; those folks make around $122K on average. Those with a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Finance at Credit Suisse come out on top, and their salaries approach $93K annually.


In this role, the best-paying skill appears to be C#; individuals who claim it among their capabilities enjoy a higher median salary of $92K per year. A common skill in Credit Suisse's work force is Microsoft Excel; nearly one-fourth of survey participants report using it on the job. Other skills in demand are Business Analysis, Project Management, and Data Analysis.

Benefits and Perks

Paid time off is hard to come by at Credit Suisse; the company rewards only a third of survey participants with paid vacation time and only 23 percent with sick leave. Most employees report contributing to a 401(k). Most respondents can count on health insurance, and a fair number of respondents have dental coverage as a benefit. Perks also include life insurance, tuition reimbursement, supplemental paternity leave, and optional telecommute / work from home.
