Pros

A lot of very smart people work at UBS. It is very rare to find a weak senior manager in IT and the quality of the IT products are generally quite high. Furthermore, most of the key IT processes are well developed, so learning the UBS way of doing things will serve you well if you move to another firm. Strong emphasis is placed on employee growth and feedback, and the employee evaluation process (PMM) is thoughtfully managed.

Cons

(writing in late 2011) the overall strategy of the firm is under review, so candidates should do their best to make sure that any role they take will continue to be part of the strategy in the coming months.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    At the time I joined it was a growing investment bank with a strong reputation. There were numerous opportunities to work on large, live deals. You were allowed to take on more senior work if you could handle it.

    Cons

    Extreme example of investment banking work life balance. To sum it up, one of my colleagues quick in the first month by sending an email that contained the phrase "There is no happiness here."

    Advice to Management

    Honest communication with employees on the actual state of the business would have been nice.
