UBS Employee Review

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.

Data Analyst (Former Employee) - Singapore
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.
