I have been working at UBS full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pockets of strength include the managed municipal bond team and alternatives (hedge funds) products. Some strength in asset allocation solutions, too. Good work/life balance. Good location. Nice office space.

Cons

Bonus pay is not competitive with other asset managers. The US asset management business is losing assets and revenues. Prospects for the next few years appear to be limited without some type of catalyst.

Advice to Management

Clearly communicate the business strategy to better engage employees. Do a lift-out or aquisition to shake things up. Pursue a third-party distribution strategy.

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

    Pros

    Great team that cares about your learning, enhanced by weekly seminars on a range of topics given by finance professionals. Laidback culture, approachable upper management, a lot of free goodies which is always good.

    Cons

    Some coffee/copy work, but to be expected at this level. Some days were rather slow with not much to do. Didn't follow through on some promises, e.g. learn Bloomberg

    Advice to Management

    Provide interns with more responsibility to increase learning
