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

Pros

UBS has a very strong name brand and a global presence. As one of the world's largest wealth managers, it offers great employee benefits and 401k matching contributions. While certain groups may not meet the same level of diversity the firm boasts as a whole, UBS is recognized as a market leader in every financial hub around the world.

Cons

UBS tends to have a very conservative work environment. Management is very concerned with maintaining the brand image and reputation. Domiciled in Switzerland, UBS tends to adhere to much higher risk standards than most of its competitors.

Advice to Management

Worry less about image, branding and risk mitigation and focus more on the businesses the company is in. Either compete at the level of the competition, or allocate resources elsewhere.

    I worked at UBS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quick money and trade clearing.
    Access to many different products.
    Prestige of Swiss Banking.
    Great marketing brand and very visible.
    Great mobile technology.

    Cons

    The US Management does a terrible job of communicating with all of their employees, the feel is that you can call the US headquarters and ask 10 different questions 10 different times and get a different answer each and every time. Also, top management is too involved with one particular political party and I believe that is poor judgement as our leaders represent a large diversity of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Cool it on all the political party jockeying. Also, streamline your communication with employee and set consistency as a top goal.
