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

    Pros

    Good management, clear goals, decent salary, decent benefits and good team drive. Diversity and female management a plus. A very reputable company that looks great on your resume.

    Cons

    Long hours, stressful atmosphere and some misguided directors that won’t always consider doing something innovative. Cramped working areas that doesn’t really allow for open collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas on how to build a better mousetrap.

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

    Pros

    Ok benefit plans and the mentor program. That's about it.

    Cons

    No bonus and no group or team activities. Management is into power play and does not listen to the lower levels. Employees with under AD levels are constantly being ignored and heard. Management will use the excuse of company is downsizing to remove anyone who is not working the way desire. IT is horrible..most terrifying systems i had ever seen . No 360 review at all. No work life balance and your contribution is not rewarded often. Company again using excuse of downsizing. ..but we all know they publish quarterly profits year on year. Opportunities to grow is minimal as the people on top have the say.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is a total disaster.

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

    Pros

    A great location and physical environment and the people on my team were terrific and full of energy helping to make a stressful job manageable..

    Cons

    Cold corporate culture geared to keeping you looking over your shoulder. HR department emits a sense that the #1 goal is to avoid lawsuits by employees. One never forgets that everyone is replaceable at UBS.

    Advice to Management

    Bad management decisions closed the largest trading floor in USA, in Stamford, CT. UBS is still on the ropes as a whole since 2008 crisis. Get back to basics, wealth management.

    I worked at UBS as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive company that wants to see its people succeed, great that employees of all divisions have access to information from even the investment bank

    Cons

    Everything is on your own in terms of progression for yourself (apply for internal positions on your own), and the less amount of FA hires doesn't help unless you're ok with being in client services

    Advice to Management

    Help support the interns whom you hire more and advise them of their possible career progression within the company, rather than constantly saying "I'm sure we will see you back here in the future at some point"
