    Pros

    International team, good atmosphere among colleagues

    Cons

    Zero investment in training, hardware or software. IT frowned upon and a pure cost center.

    Advice to Management

    Stop frowning on IT and use it to it's full potential.

    I worked at Unicredit Global Information Services full-time

    Pros

    central location, average salary, some interesting technology, if you are luck you will have well trained and nice colleagues

    Cons

    the building is pretty dark at the new location, always watch your back, expect that you have to wait much for others to be able to complete your tasks

    Advice to Management

    improve HR, talk more with the "real" coworkers

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Unicredit Global Information Services full-time

    Pros

    Good Salary and Good Benefits. Nothin else to add.

    Cons

    the company is called now UBIS
    You are basically a second class citizen. You will be harassed by they business users who will claim a sort of mystic superiority towards IT employess and threat you without resperct from day one
    Bullism is tollerated by UBIS management and basically you will be intimdated and find trapped yourself doing monkey job.
    Nothing to learn and strong blaming culture.All the core projects are run by contractors so basically the permanent employees do only sort of PA jobs for them
    The Italian management don't care a lot and delegate the dirty job to a bunch of micromanager who act as sort of gestapo. (I think this come from the fascist culture)
    It is hilarious listening the Italian managers when they visit the London office and they barely speak English
    The company will be eventually sold off to some big vendor

     AVOID THIS COMPANY IF YOU WORK AS PERMANENT

    Advice to Management

    Sell this company to some big IT VENDOR and retire for ever. You clearly have not idea how to run IT business.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Unicredit Global Information Services as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quite laidback. Working hours are 9-5.

    Cons

    UGIS (now UBIS) is an IT provider to Unicredit Bank. This separation means that contact with the business - the "client" in real, money-making terms - is reduced and often the relationship is strained, as the UBIS goal is no longer the business goal.
    Also, IT policy often ends up either making it harder to do one's job, or actually dictates the work required - again, providing no value to the business.
