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

    Pros

    You learn a lot very quickly. They have a good amount of resources but in a lot of cases you get conflicting info. There were a lot of great people who worked in my office. Even though I didn’t use it they have a great maternity leave and allow flexible work arrangements for mothers.

    Cons

    No room for growth, especially in branch offices. The team I worked on was awful and there was no ability to switch to a different team. The FAs I worked for were never in the office, refused to take responsibility for their mistakes and made a lot of promises (promotions, compensation) that they never kept. Management did absolutely nothing about any of the problems we had no matter how hard we tried to come to some solutions. If you end up on a bad team there’s really not much you can do.
    My branch also did not renew my 66 properly which led me to have to put in an appeal with FINRA at my new company to get the designation back.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better environment for your CSAs. Stop brushing things under the rug and actually do something about FAs who behave like children. Value the employees who actually do the work to keep clients happy.
