    I have been working at UBS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Making strides to improve employee morale and culture via a focus on career development and internal mobility.

    Cons

    Relatively speaking, it's a boys club. There is a clear lack of diversity within senior management (MD level) and the Switz counter partners are really driving the direction of the firm. Seeing very few minorities (African Americans and Latinos) and woman at the top, which is discouraging and reflective of deeper issues.

    Advice to Management

    Until there is a sweeping change at the top, recruiting and retaining strong candidates of underrepresented backgrounds will be a challenge. Its opens the company to potential lawsuits.

    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.
