    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at UBS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have great coworkers, I work for a great team, I have excellent earning potential as my team grows and I get licenses. The work life balance is great as my day is strictly 8-5 and nothing after, and we have lots of vacation and get all the bank/market holidays. I really like my job.

    Cons

    It can be a bit of an old school environment depending on your branch. My branch is a bit more formal (though not nearly as formal as it could or used to be) and there is a definite delineation between genders, eg women are CSAs and men are Financial Advisors. There's very little overt sexism, but there is definitely some institutionalized sexism going on. The earning potential is great, but there is not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility in this role, although UBS has tons of career opportunities in other areas.
