I have been working at UBS full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of chances to learn, interact, apply knowledge and influence and improve processes. Great dynamic environment where things happen and change all the time.

Cons

Preoccupation with protecting risk to the company, but lacking clear communication to affected parties what needs to be done. Sometimes, a bit too much change for people to follow as well. Career progression can also depend a lot on where in the organization you currently are. Most doors are open for people who are already in the front-line or in sensitive IB areas.

Advice to Management

Have the teams implementing the changes interact first hand with the affected parties to understand their operations and communicate effectively what and why it needs to be done. Keep changes to a few major ones, or have them small enough such that anyone affected will know what changed and how to handle it immediately.

    Pros

    Bank has good connections, and business partners. The connection into wealth management add numerous advantages. Its trying to improve its risk structure in the right direction

    Cons

    Overly aggressive atmosphere with competing teams of people for same job. Systems are bad with efforts being made to improve. Connectivity of systems is very limited. To much upper middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Slim down the number of middle management layers and co heads.
