    I worked at UBS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Satisfied with compensation* (Please note that I am generally not too hard to please--esp given that many peers in my age group were out of work) - Excellent benefits package - Excellent cafeteria food - Dinners ordered after 6PM were paid for by the firm (up to $25 dollars) - Worked in a group with some generally good people (DEF not the norm; group specific) - Worked in a group where weekend work was not always required (DEF not the norm; group specific)

    Cons

    - Consistently long work days (12hrs+; on par with investment banking hours) - Managers' expectations would not always be 100% clear - Days where down time was excessive; and work wouldn't begin until PM hours (leading to inevitable late nights) - Very senior heavy group lead to junior folks being spread thin to take on time consuming grunt work

    Advice to Management

    - Hire more junior people to spread around work load - Work with middle level managers to be more supportive of junior folks (i.e. to provide clearer instruction, have a little more patience, help develop personally and professionally) - Encourage more social outings to help group bond more
