I have been with UBS for exactly one year and have seen a lot of turnover in my department and ones surrounding me. I am over 40 and feel like I am in the extreme minority of people my age in this area. I enjoy what I do but my only regret is, the company will not hire more people in my work area. I am salaried but work over 10 hours a day because there are not enough workers to handle the tasks at hand, and this needs to be rectified. I stress a lot with this job because work will pile up very fast with only one other person on my team, having started with a total of three others besides myself last year.
Work/Life balance is good but on an average day at UBS, I only get up out of my chair once because I am so eye deep in work.
Good vacation, downtown parking discounts
Too much work for one department, onboarding needs improvement.
The US operations has been challenged with divergent mission statements from parent oversight. Lack of clarity in the core goals challenge the integration of wealth management and investment banking efforts.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 11, 2018
My limited experience as an IT developer at UBS has been very good. Management may be just as bad as everywhere else :) but my direct managers have been fair and understanding. The company is Swiss which means they are very careful about data security and doing things right. They are also generally good, kind people. That is one of the reasons I took the job.
Professionalism, good health and vacation benefits, good people in IT (not cut-throat)
Professionalism, lots of paperwork and red tape, not exciting, big corporation
A low stress cooperative environment, where there was some, but not much career advancement within the office. I was not there long enough, to pursue career advancement within the entire company, as I left with the financial advisers I supported, to start up Double Diamond Investment Group; where I currently work.
CLIENT SERVICE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 6, 2018
I was hired in 2014 as a contractor for two years. During that time I was met with tons of support. UBS invested in all employees without regards of you hired status. As a contractor I was treated as a regular full time employee. The compensation was in lined with full-time UBS employees.
They have a professional, but relaxed culture. The CEOs are engaged with normal operational employees. I would truly recommend UBS to anyone who want to work for a company that understand their staff.
Company Culture, Compensation, Health Benefits, Free Lunch, incentatives, and working hours
Very educational position where advancement is always available.
FACILITIES ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 2, 2018
Worked for a small intimate team as part of a huge banking corporation. Spent time interacting with most if not all departments within company, encompassing several floors of the Board of Trade. Always given opportunities for growth and advancement, always treated with respect. Managed office duties for Facilities department and learned and operated AutoCAD for creating new office space and updating existing spaces within building.
Very relaxed atmostphere but very serious work. Dress code was comfortable and culture was the same, serious, but fun.
Management of all levels worked with everyone on an even playing field. One of the best jobs, and companies I ever had the pleasure of having/working for.
I spent the majority of time working on integration and building out a Global L&D and OD function. I partnered with Human Resource Business Partners to develop them so they could implement talent and change management.
challenge, opportunity to do many different things.
