Financial Services Industry is all about customer satisfaction
Administrative Manager (Former Employee), Madison, WI – April 29, 2015
Pros: Company gatherings; community service, Paid holidays
The most enjoyable part of the day is working with clients. In the financial services industry, the sky is the limit on much you can learn and each day brings a new challenge.Working together with co-workers and management has brought a new meaning to "Teamwork".
Associate Director (Current Employee), Weehawken, NJ – April 19, 2015
Pros: Able to work from home at times
Work environment is friendly, co-workers always helpful. The people that I interact with on a daily basis are dedicated to the company and easy to work with. There are seasoned, talented individuals on the teams; however they are not always recognized for such.
The hardest part of the job is the re-locating factor that is being discussed on a daily basis. Due to that news UBS is losing a lot of skilled players.
As middle and senior management leaves and are being replaced the priorities of the business keep changing and the "vision" is not always viewed the same at times. Thus putting a lot of pressure for management to perform with less resources.
Associate Director (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – April 14, 2015
Pros: Work from home, flexible hours
Cons: Poor management decisions, no raises/bonuses
Worked here in Chicago for almost 2 years. Typical big bank atmosphere. Management here makes very strange decisions and almost everything is offshored. Basically our job is making sure the people in India don't screw up and cause us to lose all our customers
Pros: Company is all about your family life and they can be very accomadating
Cons: Due to the offshore/inshore of this business, you can find yourself very stretched.
A typical day aside from the daily work load is the interation that I have with my co-workers. They are my strength and guidance whenever I need them. They are a very important part of my day in this very stressful environment. The hardest part of the job is trying to satisfy all internal and external clients. It can being trying sometimes but also rewarding. The most enjoyable time of the day is is when all the checks and balances of the day equal out and we wind down and talk amongst each other. Management also plays a key role in my day as they are the backbone of the department. With all the knowledge that they possess, it is a benefit to learn from them as you try to progress yourself through your career.
Account Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – March 22, 2015
Working at UBS was great. Very supportive environment and peers were collaborative. I worked for the global asset manager for five years and really appreciated the collaborative nature of our team structures. The company is very client-focused and values strong personalities.
