    UBS is devoting all of its resources toward serving their clients.

    Cons

    The bank continues to consolidate and shrink, so job opportunities may be limited.

    Pros

    Large organization, lots of different areas within Group Technology that are business lines oriented or non-oriented, average benefits.

    Cons

    Location : Weehawken is very remote, GTP's get placed very haphazardly without a proper HR personnel handling it, mobility within bank is restricted, networking opportunities are limited across divisions, lack of standard procedures across divisions, career options in group technology are very limited to a couple roles, career progression is slow and very bureaucratic and depends on whether your manager is well connected to senior management. As a Graduate Trainee program employee career progression is very difficult. It takes about 5 to 7 years to become an Authorized Officer (equivalent of Associate in other firms, junior most level position in bank). No Raise for GTP's during first 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide some viable career advancement options for GTP's. HR should manage their placement opportunities based on their profile and not individuals within Group Technology.
