Pros

The culture is very laid back. It is not an entirely unpleasant place to work. It is not a high pressure environment, work is usually assigned with ample time to complete it.

Cons

You work and never really see the results, things are very bureaucratic and political. The environment makes delivering a good product very hard. It is very rigid in some senses and not structured at all in other ways which are actually more relevant to what is produced software wise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management I think largely sees what needs to be done it is how they think they can achieve this that is misguided. Too much focus on trying to measure the unmeasurable and track the untraceable that the essence of what needs to be done is lost. The structure of software development at UBS is built on micromanagement rather than individuals with some level of autonomy.

    Pros

    Brand name wirehouse so that definitely helps

    Cons

    This is true only for Private Wealth Management, but the Corporate Management seemed to place results above all else without regard to their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire new management
