Our workforce at at glance

Our culture

We have a unique culture, and it's a winning one. Sustainability thrives on consistency, and how we accomplish our goals is as important as what we achieve.

We integrate specific behavior expectations into our business practices. We call them our three keys to success – and we recognize (and celebrate!) culture-building efforts through a variety of initiatives.

In our daily work, good leadership helps maximize the benefits of diverse teams. We therefore help managers (for example, through training to reduce unconscious bias) become more inclusive leaders as they make decisions about roles, assignments, working arrangements, promotions and performance evaluations.

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was an intern first. I spent 6 months being an intern. After my internship was over, I was given a contractual position. The interview was essentially my time as an intern. I had to have my work portfolio put together for them to see if it was worth giving me the contract position. I had a group interview with everyone in my department the weeks before my internship was over.
