    Pros

    I worked for 16 years for UBS and can honestly say that I was never discriminated against for being a woman. There were many times when I was the only woman in the room but I wasn't overlooked or disregarded. I had many different bosses and, yes, some were better than others. In general, though I thought that my contributions were recognized and that I had a chance to discuss any disagreements. There were times when I had to go along with a decision I didn't agree with but I was listened to and I understood that another area, project or department had to take priority in that moment.

    Cons

    The company is big, huge and has a process for everything. Plus the processes change frequently. There is a lot of outsourcing - even your HR rep might be from a 3rd party. You need patience and allies to negotiate the system.

    Advice to Management

    After implementing a change. let it be a for a while, even if there are recognized flaws. Sometimes people will live for a long time with "good" rather than wait for "perfect". Overall, I would highly recommend this company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    Started off with a phone interview. Mostly behavioral and the basic phone interview questions. Asked about school, major, background, experience, etc. Pretty easy phone interview. Next I was invited into the office for an in-person interview. Met with the senior vice president of the specific office I was applying for and the client service associate. Was asked some technical questions regarding wealth management and my overall finance background. Overall the interview process was pretty easy.
