    Great work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsThe people who work at this office are fantastic. It is a beautiful building and right across the street from the Stamford train station. Some of the smartest people in the business work at this office.

    ConsNot a great office location if you are young and looking for a fun city to work in. However, the location makes for an easy commute via the train.

    UBS Environement

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe culture is amazing, and very open to new things. Many people are eager to teach. It is a Global firm so if you do well and get approved you can travel to different locations.

    ConsSometimes the depending on the job things get repetitive. If you are someone who does not like to network you may not do as well and are less likely to move up.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
