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

    Pros

    Great work life balance in my group. Global bank so there is potential to move if you're willing to pay for it yourself.

    Cons

    Swiss run company so there is definitely a feeling of isolation for U.S. Based businesses. Also policy of no annual raises which can get frustrating for years on end at the same salary. Despite market hitting highs for years on end, all management talks about is cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Give normal annual raises. Stop emphasizing cost cutting. It is very discouraging to morale.
