Current Employee - Analyst in Weehawken, NJ

I have been working at UBS full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great people, great benefits, lots to learn here, good opportunities to move up if you apply yourself. Nice to be outside of city. Have made a lot of changes to better themselves in the last few years.

Cons

Some politicking. Pay is slow to increase since financial crisis. There are always a few bad eggs that have bad attitudes about work in general. Layoffs in last few years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget about the workers when cost cutting. Working in a skeleton crew won't benefit anyone.

    Former Employee - Investment Banking Analyst
    Former Employee - Investment Banking Analyst

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

    Pros

    -Compensation is ok, but bonuses are significantly less than similar bulge brackets
    -Still a pretty capable bank, some decent deals and exposure
    -Analyst classes are filled out pretty well - diverse, smart people. Usually best thing about joining is the analyst network after

    Cons

    -Terrible management at practically every level. Everyone is looking out for themselves, do not care to develop junior staff and frequently throw them under the bus.
    -Upward movement is based more on politics than it is on merit
    -No direction besides cost cutting. Senior management provides no guidance, tells their bankers to cut costs but then punishes them for not closing deals. Result is a free-for-all amongst all the bankers, severe politics to stay afloat, and no consideration for the long-term
    -any major talent has pretty much jumped ship already after a series of poor management decisions and financial blowups due to poor risk management and a culture that encourages immense risk-taking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the culture
