    Pros

    Not a lot to say about pros as my position was eliminated.

    Cons

    A rough place to work if you are not a Type A overachiever, and probably rough even if you are. Layoffs every April and November; always looking for ways to cut costs at the expense of the employees. Change is constant. Difficult to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out ways to improve morale. Stop the brain drain.

    Pros

    Great flexibilty for FAs, a variety of products to offer clients, and good platform. Highly recognized name that can be beneficial with clients.

    Cons

    UBS is extremely conservative and the management has a difficult time "thinking outside the box".A great deal of that can be blamed on current industry regulations but the remaining is due to the corporate culture.
