    I worked at UBS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Clear strategy and communication to employees; Nice people to work with, flexible hours. Amenable work environment, nice office locations and perks (although all this is contingent on location and varies by department.)

    Cons

    For a global company, the benefits are horrible! Not a clear career path for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Don't nickel and dime your employees -- their health should mean more than the bottom line of cost.
