I worked at UBS full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Globalisation has made this worldwide organization into a more collaborative and diverse, informed workforce that seeks to deploy a framework that goes beyond normal efforts to help accomodate, assimilate, and accelerate any new hires, internally or externally. Recently, the relationships between people and systems were managed through a close coupled environment allowing the individual employee the capacity to work at the specific task in which they specialize but there was always the growing potential to shifting to a loose-coupled environment to allow the possibility of progressive employee improvement and contribution beyond internal agility and individual flexibility in the workplace.

Cons

Conversely, the competition among wealth management businesses and increased regulatory climate has forced this large organization to seek a cultural fit with its employees that defines how they feel about the organization's attitude as a whole and how they communicate with each other. A more peripheral vision and alignment of key stakeholders( read employees) as well as the pay and reward mechanisms of the current culture can and should nurture the fundamental changes needed to effect a change that will involve employee self-accountability and commitment to succeed.

Advice to Management

Be more strategic towards the nurturing and alignment of employees' interest with that of the organization.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at UBS as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. UBS still has a decent name despite doing not so well in recent times
    2. The learning opportunities are good. It still is a top bank in certain areas

    Cons

    1. Highly stressful
    2. Bank performance has not been good in recent years
    3. Management and HR are not transparent and people get let go all the time
    4. The Investment bank in New York is being restructured by a completely new management (most of whom have been hired in the past 2 years) and nobody knows their place in the organization and there is a lot of uncertainty
    5. Lack of professionalism (Offers being made to interns and then rescinded in a few weeks)
    6. Many of the former top people at the bank have moved on to rival banks or to start something of their own

    Advice to Management

    1.Work to retain the best talent and look at ways to make money rather than lose it
    2. Develop a goal and objectives for the company, make sure everyone within the organization is aware of them
    3. The senior management should work more as a cohesive unit rather than a bunch of seperate individuals
