Best Places to Interview: 2016 (#31)
UBS recognized by peers as Best Global Private Bank 2016 in Euromoney Private Banking Survey. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIMdh
We're thrilled to be the #2 ranked Ideal Employer amongst business students in Switzerland. We gained one rank compared to last year's results. Thanks to all students who believe in us! But not only that: UBS also ranks again in the top 10 most attractive employers for IT, law, and natural sciences students. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vI6Et
We offer people around the world a supportive, challenging and diverse working environment. We value your passion and commitment, and reward your performance.
Succeeding at UBS means respecting, understanding and trusting colleagues and clients. Challenging others and being challenged in return. Being passionate about what you do. Driving yourself forward, always wanting to do things the right way. Does that sound like you? Then come join us!
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.
I worked at UBS full-time (More than 5 years)
-Vacation and benefits are great!
-Great work culture and schedule flexibility.
-Depending on department and managers, you may be able to learn a great deal and actually feel a sense of accomplishment.
-Sometimes you are on your own in decision-making and it seems as if no one wants to take responsibility for their own actions. It's difficult to work as a team when certain individuals aren't cooperating.
-It's hard to move up and people tend to stay in the same rank.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS.
The position was located overseas. I had 3 rounds of interviews with interviewers located in Hong Kong, Zurich, and London -- and they were all by phone. I wish they offered video conferencing so as to be more engaging. Surprised that they didn't offer this when most companies do for remote interviews, especially going into the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
The last interviewer who called from their London office used an interrogation style of interivew, seeming to disbelieve my accomplishments and asking why and how I managed to accomplish what I described on my resume -- from jobs that I held as far back as 10 to 15 years ago. He had an air of disbelief and almost assumed that I was hiding something or exaggerating -- seemed inapproriate to put an interviewee as much on the defensive as he did. The first and second round interviewers were much more professional.
