    Frustrating... Some positives but, largely inhibitive for a top performer.

    I have been working at UBS full-time

    Pros

    Strong product/service offering, strong brand, excellent company stability / capitalization, reasonable career opportunities, seen as one of the top 2 or 3 Private Banks globally.

    Cons

    Below industry average in remuneration, questionable middle management, obstructionist Compliance regime, some job insecurity, heavy office gossip, heavy political obstacles across the firm globally.

    I have been working at UBS as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice and relaxed office environment. People are friendly and open for the most part.

    Cons

    Everything here has moved towards all entry-mid level positions are independent contractor in the post dodd-frank obamacare heavily regulated world. Very rigid corporate structure, hard to move across divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from moving everyone to independent contractor, your turnover rate will be going up substantially in my opinion if this doesn't change.
