I have been working at UBS full-time (less than an year)

Pros

If you work with the right FA, you can really learn a lot. I am preparing to start the New FA program, and have been working as a CSA. Sometimes the FAs can be oblivious, but overall everyone works together well.

Cons

Sometimes, the focus is not people based. Obviously the overall goal is to bring in assets, but sometimes the FAs and the firm forgets that those assets belong to human beings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember, people should come first.

    Pros

    Decent work quality of life experience.

    Cons

    The place has become a very depressing and unmotivating place to work over the last 4 years. Things do not seem to be getting better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value hard working and dedicated employees and build a culture that rewards that. Identify the talent.

    I worked at UBS full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The brand on a global basis is quite strong. Very large Investment bank with a lot of capabilities. The bank is also Swiss which is appealing to a lot of wealthy amricans in the private wealth management space.

    Cons

    Their management is not very good primarily due to the fact that they stil are unable to identify how they are going to grow the business and in which direction they want to take the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually take charge and be creative. Rather than be just a puppet for New York/Switzerland, show some initiative and bring some fresh ideas to the table on how to better run the business. It should make a difference.
