I have been working at UBS as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Very flexible schedule, some interesting projects to work on. A great introduction to what its like to work for a corporate wealth management firm.

Cons

Interns have many restrictions, which sometimes limits the types of projects you can do. You definitely tend to get stuck with a lot of boring activities.

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

    Pros

    The brand on a global basis is quite strong. Very large Investment bank with a lot of capabilities. The bank is also Swiss which is appealing to a lot of wealthy amricans in the private wealth management space.

    Cons

    Their management is not very good primarily due to the fact that they stil are unable to identify how they are going to grow the business and in which direction they want to take the business.

    Advice to Management

    Actually take charge and be creative. Rather than be just a puppet for New York/Switzerland, show some initiative and bring some fresh ideas to the table on how to better run the business. It should make a difference.

    I worked at UBS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Collegiate atmosphere and collaborative culture. UBS arguably has one of the best global models for delivering the Firm to it's clients. They also place great emphasis on work/life balance and local community activities.

    Cons

    Too many self-inflicted losses, scandals and leadership changes have resulted in deteriorating morale, poor pay and periodic lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on core strengths and products, establish a senior management team who are committed to at least a five year plan, and leverage the Firm's unique global footprint and distribution caspabilities
