      Pros

      I have great coworkers, I work for a great team, I have excellent earning potential as my team grows and I get licenses. The work life balance is great as my day is strictly 8-5 and nothing after, and we have lots of vacation and get all the bank/market holidays. I really like my job.

      Cons

      It can be a bit of an old school environment depending on your branch. My branch is a bit more formal (though not nearly as formal as it could or used to be) and there is a definite delineation between genders, eg women are CSAs and men are Financial Advisors. There's very little overt sexism, but there is definitely some institutionalized sexism going on. The earning potential is great, but there is not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility in this role, although UBS has tons of career opportunities in other areas.

      Pros

      Friendly coworkers and constant communication about tasks and assignments. The cafeteria for lunch is great and offers a variety of choices. Welcomed me with open arms and immediately felt like part of the team.

      Cons

      No cons about company itself, but location as a commuter from NY made it difficult to find a work/life balance for myself, but may differ for others inquiring about said position.
