Employee - Vice President

Best tip to find success here, know your boss - know if that person is on the way out or in as regimes change there regularly.

Employee - Vice President

It used to be a fun and collaborative place, it is now and has been for a long time punitive, mismanaged and disfunctional

Employee - Managing Director

There was a culture of political back-stabbing and bullying. There was no feeling of 'us working together' as managers fiercly protected their own domains.

Employee - Managing Director

I can only hope things have changed since I left. One thing still in place though, I think, is how centralised the decision process from Zurich is.

Employee - Managing Director

Most people were nice enough to work with but some managers ran their desks by bullying colleagues. My manager were often shouting at meeting I had with him and hurling accusations. It proved difficult to move forward.

Employee - Associate

I would change a lot of things. Paper work, constant change of structure, decision making,

Employee - Associate

Far too much red tape here. Getting things done takes far too long

Employee - Associate

ok culture, not old school

Employee - Associate

In order to save money, company released Highly paid, Highly qualified support staff and replaced with cheap labor. Customer support suffered making company just the same or less than its competitors, even though its fees are more.

Employee - Associate

Important to know you should maintain your skills and resume, do not feel disappointed when you are replaced at this company.

Employee - Associate

As the company is replacing long term staff with temporary, low paid staff the environment was very uncomfortable. People were not going out of there way to get work done, training and knowledge were lost or incomplete.

Employee - Associate

I worked at UBS while in MBA school in London. I thought the culture of the IB in London was open to a point. The main change would be the frequency of change in reporting structure. Multiple teams had the MD they report into changed multiple times in a year. This places barriers to succeed in a promotion and develop a career path inside the firm.

Employee - Associate

Good opportunity if you leverage your experience. Build to your strengths, work the hours in an efficient manner and you can succeed.

Employee - Associate

It is the typical culture of an IB. The London office though has a more of a laid back atmosphere compared to some of the US office counterparts. Overall, it was not a bad culture to be a part of in finance and would take the right offer at UBS in the future.

Employee - Vice President

Great diversity

Employee - Vice President

My very favorite IB was Bear, Stearns which is no longer in business. It was my favorite position but UBS/PaineWebber was also a great firm. They have been through some bad times with the IRS penalizing them for hiding client assets in Switzerland to avoid US Taxes, but let's face it US taxes are too high.

Employee - Vice President

Fabulous company culture. I made a ton of great lifelong friends

Employee - Senior Vice President

Too many reporting lines. Needs less "middlemen"

Employee - Senior Vice President

You'll be able to learn from some of the smartest financial people on the planet and able to contribute and hone your skill set.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Very open, collaborative environment, Not a silo!. Got to work with different divisions around the country and around the world. Focused on Best Practices.
