Meet Our Employees Alessandro
Before joining Credit Suisse, I had the opportunity to work with two other large international organizations – Thomson Reuters and Hewlett Packard. In 2012 Credit Suisse recruiters found my profile online and offered me the opportunity to take part in a recruitment process, as they believed I could be the right match for a vacant role. I did not hesitate to grab the chance as Credit Suisse represents an excellent option for anyone who wants to build a career in the financial industry. I started as a Team Leader with Market Data Services.
After about three years with the team, I decided to look for new opportunities and challenges, and internal mobility was the first and only option for me. Since the beginning of 2015, I have worked as a Business Manager with Investment Solutions & Products, a business area of the larger International Wealth Management division.
The office has a friendly atmosphere, everyone is aware that we are working in a fast paced environment, where a certain level of dedication and professional behavior is required. Alessandro
As a Business Manager, I support my business area in different topics, but with a clear focus on financial aspects. My responsibility consists of regular analysis of expense development. Although, I am also often asked to coordinate new tasks, so every day looks different. More than once a week I catch up with my manager in Zurich to discuss new challenges and define adequate follow-up activities. I take part in regular meetings with the other Investment Solutions & Products colleagues at CS Wroclaw.
In my role numerical and analytical abilities are just as important as interpersonal skills.
I collaborate with colleagues from all around the world, so a good skill mix is key in building a good network and achieving the team's objectives. It also gives me the opportunity to learn every day by dealing with new challenges. And even though the office has a friendly atmosphere, everyone is aware that we are working in a fast paced environment, where a certain level of dedication and professional behavior is required.
In my free time I like playing sports, in particular playing basketball and football. My two other passions are reading books and travelling.
Working in such a large organization helps me meet people with different passions, often similar to mine. It gives us the chance to spend time together outside the office, and makes for a great Xmas party!
A few times a year I talk with my line management about my personal ambitions in short, medium and long terms. We discuss personal strengths and weaknesses and agree on what areas I should focus more on to achieve my goals. This allows my manager to be aware of what I would like to achieve in the coming years better point me in the right direction or support me with a proper training plan. In upcoming years I would like to keep developing my skills in my current area and work to become a senior employee.
