Former Employee - Director in Weehawken, NJ

I worked at UBS full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

-Financial Advisor centric organization
-Conveniently located to midtown Manhattan
-Beautiful campus on the Hudson, good cafeteria and food court
-A group of extremely talented, dedicated and hard working individuals in home office (IT and marketing organization in particular)

Cons

-Extreme cutbacks have made it impossible to stay current on IT, infrastructure and marketing
-Senior management priorities change more frequently than I have ever experienced in my 20 year FS career. The outcome of this, has unfortunately had a severe impact on employee moral and unnecessary loss of project dollars and potential revenue

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Hold senior management responsible for failed or cancelled projects, identify what went wrong to prevent it from occurring again and again
-Tap into current employee network to identify areas for improvement
