Challenging and Highly Political

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Adminstrative

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.

Pros

Medical care

Cons

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.

Pros

Unable to think of any

Cons

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.

Pros

Great company to be employed in

Cons

Team management

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.
