Stress among junior bankers has come into focus after a survey by 13 Goldman Sachs first-year analysts highlighting their 95-hour working week went viral. Goldman has responded by saying it will hire more junior bankers and shift staff from other teams to help the busiest ones.
Now Credit Suisse, Switzerland's second-largest bank, is to award the extra cash to staff at the 'vice president' level or lower, on top of pay rises being given to everyone with a 'director' title or below.
'Credit Suisse's Capital Markets & Advisory management recognizes and wants to reward the efforts of our people who have not only managed to support our clients through unprecedented deal volume, but also increased our share of the market,' the bank said in a statement.
