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.

This bank has not given me the opportunity. My so called team leader sitting in Zurich secretly offshored my position and kicked me to expense team without prior discussions with me. When I applied for internal transfers to fx training or private banking, never even speak to me say I do not have the relevant experience. Buzz off bank

People are engaged and enthusiastic, but generally work-life balance is not quite a priority. A lot of capable people to work with that provide valuable work experience.

Typical day at work : You wake up wanting to go to work or if you are on holidays most time you dread having to go back to work cause your holidays are up however camaraderie within the team in UBS was such that they are like your other family outside of home. what you learned : depending on at which stage you are at, mine was at the stage where I was in the industry for the last 9 years and was prepare to look to step up and lead a team. management : good your co-workers : best people to work with. there must be trust and knowing that each will take care of the other in terms of work hardest part of the job : when you welcome the challenge there is nothing really hard unless you start to lose interest then everything will start to feel difficult the most enjoyable part of the job : the best part is waking up every morning and wanting to do what you really like doing
Pros
you enjoy what you are doing and the extra bonus of getting pay to do it
Cons
sometimes when it gets busy you can expect to stay late up till london lunch time

Need a network to get ahead otherwise career will stagnate. Performance rewards are not tied to actual performance as performance ratings are based on political needs rather than reality.
Pros
good work life balance, very technologically advanced, brand name
Cons
need to know right people to get ahead, abilities and performance mean nothing
