Extremely intense and stressful jobs

Work segregation is too much. Eg instead of doing A-Z but over here we do only A, they added the volume which is sky high that we can’t cope. Every minute, every hour is a rushing day, there is no peak or non peak period of doing work, everyday, every fresh week is chasing for figures to get work done. From the start of the week, the manager will load you with 180% of workload volumes when we can only perform 100% of the workloads. That’s why we have to work very late even to midnight in order to reduce our work volume, even week end we have to do our work. There is no peace, even on our rest day..we still thinking of our workloads volume.Line manager treat us like machine operator or robot. Non appreciated. Bank wise is too bureaucratic, very digit, inflexible, non negotiable on policy set. IT wise is very advance, not a good work culture as colleagues are arrogant, non helpful.The Bank encourages all staff working from home.

A fun and good company to work for

I was with UBS for two years. Fast-paced but rewarding salary. Everyone is nice efficient and respectful. I would work there again if proper opportunity comes.

A good place to learn and work with very smart people. You will always feel engaged. Work life balance is however an issue as there are late night calls and long work hours.

Good environment and salary but low internship conversion rates

Good working environment and decent salary, but low conversion rates for summer interns. Not the best place to go to if you are looking to convert to a full time role from an internship.

Challenging and happy work place

The work culture is very good, they assign what is needed and with minimum supervision we need to complete it. They global work force had given me opportunities to work with different nationalities. Excellent work place!!


Lot of dinners


Long hours, late night calls

Challenging and Highly Political

Work is easy however, you have the risk of people stealing or thumbing down your work, or both. It's a highly political work culture and very clique-ish. Management does not care how to are able to do your work, but if you are able to execute targets on time and what they need. You're at an advantage if you work in Switzerland.

Fast pace and merciless during retrenchment. Some bankers are nice and reasonable while some are not. Guess it's the same everywhere. Great place to work in.

Operational work environment

I worked for 6 months at UBS Payment Operations. The working atmosphere was generally pleasant, with teamwork required. Problem solving skills were required.

Busy and one way benefits

The company which cares only the revenue generators and not the helpers who help them to make revenue. Have to get more network and all people have the attitude to help only if they are useful. Low in recognition of senior staffs who have worked for long years. Want to have only new people at the management level and never get local staffs in higher posts.


Medical care


Low recognition of existing staff

Biased Management and environment. Low pay. Focus on "CCA" performance and not actual work performance.

Would put a zero star rating if allowed. Only has so-called good brand name which you would soon realize is all a farce after you join. Do not join IB (UBS unwanted child). Join WM (favorite child with all the full employee (free F1 tickets) and company benefits) if you must join this bank. Do not join as a fresh grad junior/entry level analyst. Badly paid and they do not value you (You are always replaceable). Zero employee retention effort. The exact phrase from the HR personnel during my conversion interview when i asked for higher pay was "Everyone has friends who are paid more. Even me. If you are unsatisfied. Don't take this job." And I thought HR are suppose to be on employee's side? Internal promotion to the next level senior exec, termed as AO - Authorized Officer is almost non existent and requires a lot of help from senior management to "make it happen". normal route would take 3-4 years. Just to promote to senior analyst! Source externally better.


Unable to think of any


Biased Management and environment, Low pay, Zero meritocracy, near-zero progression opportunity, High and almighty HR who do not care about employees

Good experience overall. Less Job Security.

Good place to work if , they treat all the employees equally. Job is very good but team is not great to work with. Zero training and 100% productivity is required. As a company is very great to work for, but team and the management really hard to adjust with. Had tough time to work in the team and to gel with, as the team resembled like cliques.Hope that kind of atmosphere is changed now.


Great company to be employed in

Nice working culture

It has a very strong Swiss culture influence. People are generally nice, polite and punctual. The business evolves around the clients which is what should be the goal of every company. Driving client profitability is key.
