A chance to work with a lot of smart, talented people

Project Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsA lot of very smart people work at UBS. It is very rare to find a weak senior manager in IT and the quality of the IT products are generally quite high. Furthermore, most of the key IT processes are well developed, so learning the UBS way of doing things will serve you well if you move to another firm. Strong emphasis is placed on employee growth and feedback, and the employee evaluation process (PMM) is thoughtfully managed.

Cons(writing in late 2011) the overall strategy of the firm is under review, so candidates should do their best to make sure that any role they take will continue to be part of the strategy in the coming months.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
