    I have been working at UBS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    UBS is a big company with a good name. They sponsored me for my Series 7 and 66 out of college

    Cons

    Can sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Because company is so big you can feel like just a number, but then again, that is the case at most publically traded firms.

  2.  

    Very good at the start and as time goes on, still ok, but frustration w/ the inability of senior mgt to get firm forward

    I have been working at UBS full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Global company w/ heavy influence from parent, mother Switzerland! Current management seems more stable, but still trying to remove the sins from the past.

    Cons

    Current new hires brought in at market while loyal hard workers get little increases and bonus flat to continued reductions as Company tries to fund increased capital ratios. They will have a real issue w/in 2 years if they don't fix compensation overall as the seasoned professionals who have carried the load will leave to other companies willing to pay for their experience and skill set.

    The whole corporate service concept is at least 50% BS and adds additional costs, removes accountability, and confuses internal people. While they are some benefits to corporate services (centralization of certain services, legal, HR, finance, etc), the Firm's execution of this function has been poor at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really take a look at compensating senior people in the trench
