    Pros

    Great place to start a career, and a positive environment . There are lot of differences paths offered in the BSC

    Pros

    To be honest nothing is good at all.

    Cons

    I am working in UBS from more than one year and this is my review based on my experience. Worst place to work. Worst infrastructure. Worst canteen. No dinner facility for second and night shift people. No parking place for employees for two and four wheeler. Two people sits at one desk very congested. Facility staff is not helpful. Everyone uses VM machines so performance is very very slow. Even MS Word takes more than 5 mins to open and save document. Pathetic experience. Everyone will have to work in UBS in second or night shift.

    Advice to Management

    Make note of above cons and need to improve on lots of areas..
