    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - They don't work you too hard
    - If you're good, you can work here indefinitely, that is, as long as they don't decide to axe your entire team

    Cons

    - Lack of IT practices
    - Technology is from the stone age
    - They hire inexperienced graduates through contracting firms who know absolutely nothing, so you learn nothing from them
    - Very bad IT practices
    - A place where there are more managers than there are workers
    - Incredibly hierarchical
    - No transparency
    - Tons of paperwork to make the smallest IT changes

    Advice to Management

    The management should all be fired. The investment bank is a joke.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - You get a shot at doing the stuff only senior folks do at other banks, because senior people leave at an amazing rate.

    Cons

    - The bank has had heaps pf problems in the past years, rogue traders, fired CEOs, rotating cast of senior management.
    - The bank most notorious for over-hiring and over-firing (ask the FICC guys)
    - The bank will soon have no FICC or Investment banking businsess to speak of, so unless you want to work in wealth management, look elsewhere.
