    I worked at UBS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There were a lot of positive things about this company before 2007, but sadly I don't have anything positive to say about this company today.

    Cons

    1) The only lever available to the company is "reduce costs". The current staffing level is beyond "cut to the bone"/at the stage of "removing limbs".
    2) Vast amounts of talented people (quants, front office, IT, control functions) have either walked out the door or wiggled into getting laid off. Management is disconnected from the reality of the work that is required to keep the company running and constantly dumps more onto staff without concern for people's existing workload. This is not how you make a challenging and stimulating environment.
    3) UBS has an uncanny ability to be in the press constantly for one or more scandals/lawsuits.
    4) The execution of the stated culture and values is disingenuous.
    5) Practically everyone I spoke to when I resigned told me they were also looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for a job somewhere else - you'll probably enjoy your life more.
