    I worked at UBS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Vacation and benefits are great!
    -Great work culture and schedule flexibility.
    -Depending on department and managers, you may be able to learn a great deal and actually feel a sense of accomplishment.

    Cons

    -Sometimes you are on your own in decision-making and it seems as if no one wants to take responsibility for their own actions. It's difficult to work as a team when certain individuals aren't cooperating.
    -It's hard to move up and people tend to stay in the same rank.

    Pros

    Great company culture and definitely encouragement to progress further in your career within the company. There is an excellent management team in place for the most part. UBS also has a commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility which is refreshing for a large finance company.

    Cons

    Outdated technology is a challenge but they are working to improve. The regulated industry also means there are a lot of rules that appear very illogical.
