Current Employee - Development Manager in London, England (UK)

I have been working at UBS full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I have found the environment to be meritorious for good people with good ideas. It is easy to look good if you want to improve things, given the large amounts of inefficient processes that need to be addressed.

The issues with the financial markets have made the company focus on promoting internally people that are looking to construct a better business.

Cons

One has to accept that there are poor processes in these businesses with many legacy systems, so you have to be able to come to negotiate some parts of the organisation that lack efficiency.

    I have been working at UBS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you work with the right FA, you can really learn a lot. I am preparing to start the New FA program, and have been working as a CSA. Sometimes the FAs can be oblivious, but overall everyone works together well.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the focus is not people based. Obviously the overall goal is to bring in assets, but sometimes the FAs and the firm forgets that those assets belong to human beings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember, people should come first.
