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

Pros

flexible time, ability to work from home, alots of meeting with ppl around the globe, nice to work with people from different background - learning various cultures

Cons

1)investment banks run the company, bad decisions by one or more greedy bankers can kill depts and/or jobs.
2)advancement comes to mostly Europeans - US employees are looked down upon
3)Too many meeting often times work needs to be done away from the office or after hours because most of your day was spend in meetings.

Advice to Management

very likely if you work close to someone that is climbing the ladder & willing to bring you along.

    I have been working at UBS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with some brilliant people. No two days are alike so it's never boring. There is a decent amount of global collaboration between resources in the same department but different regions. Not that layoffs are good but, at least, when they have to do one it affects all levels, not just staff.

    Cons

    The pressure never lets up, it's relentless. Base pay is OK but variable comp at the staff and middle management levels takes a dive every time another reputation-damaging revelation is uncovered. Company has passed a disproportionate amount for the cost of US health benefits on the backs of its employees. Company has also done away with a benefit for older workers that would have paid half their health benefits (after 10 years of service) during their retirement years. The push to offshore as much as possible is hurting the retention of institutional knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider that your competitors will poach more and more employees as the value proposition for staying here continues to diminish rapidly.
