    Former Employee - Senior Business in Weehawken, NJ (US)

    I worked at UBS full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Not a lot to say about pros as my position was eliminated.

    Cons

    A rough place to work if you are not a Type A overachiever, and probably rough even if you are. Layoffs every April and November; always looking for ways to cut costs at the expense of the employees. Change is constant. Difficult to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out ways to improve morale. Stop the brain drain.

    I worked at UBS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some good people
    Lots and lots of product

    Cons

    They will make up reasons to get rid of you
    Dreadful 'popularity club' culture
    Can't take any criticism from own staff
    Over-inflated opinion of itself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everytime UBS tries to be like GS, it comes a cropper
