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

Pros

Quite relaxed yet results focussed. Overall met and worked with quite a lot of good, smart and interesting people. That said, there was definitely the odd "dud" floating around as well.

Cons

Executive management were badly flawed at the time I was there, would appear to have improved since then.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good, and the environment is comfortable to focus on getting the job done.
    Exposure to nature of work can be diverse for those willing to learn.

    Cons

    Mid level management politics is not transparent to the ground and affects employees performance and motivation. Year end performance measurement in turn becomes a farce.

    Advice to Management

    Employee population need to be treated more as resources, not cost objects.
