Financial and legal issues have taken their toll

Director (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at UBS

ProsSeverance package for long time employees. Probably the only reason to stay right now.

ConsCurrently leadership is replacing most IT management with IB staffers. If you are not one of the insiders from the IB, there is a good chance you will be either fighting for your job, be outsources or laid off. Overall I believe the strategy will work out, but it is going to take a while, poor bonus' and lots of layoffs.

Advice to Senior ManagementFinally pick a strategy and implement it quickly. People are your most valuable resource. If you continue to treat them as you are, when the market turns around most of the best people will be gone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
