    Great Company to Work For

    I worked at UBS

    Pros

    UBS was a great place to start a career. From the rotational programs to the networking events, UBS provided an very friendly and encouraging environment to work in.

    Cons

    In such a large company, it may be difficult to see or understand your impact in the business. You will have to make the effort to understand not only how you fit in, but also how your area fits into the big picture.

    Pros

    Smart people, ample opportunity to take ownership and drive change

    Cons

    None that aren't applicable to almost all global FS companies - hard to maintain strong culture, politics, cost cutting, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement stronger hiring practices and get rid of any remaining dead wood

    I worked at UBS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relatively flexible hours which lends to a great work/life balance. Employees have the ability to be very autonomous in their roles.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover. Compensation, specifically bonuses, have really taken a turn for the worse. Recently heard that they are also taking away vacation time for more junior level employees.
