Employee - Managing Director

The culture of "work hard, party hard" needs to be adjusted. It should be more of work and life balance as there is something to life than a stock market.

Employee - Managing Director

Be a high performer and have strong work ethics while working here, which sometimes includes making personal sacrifices, time-wise.

Employee - Managing Director

The culture is "work hard, party hard". A high performer won't be the one that only garners the big deal, but also the one with party animal spirit.

Employee - Associate

Management in Switzerland lacks the discipline and commitment to stay in a business when it has experienced market difficulty. Their timing was often wrong in terms of when they got out of a business and then got back in to it.

Employee - Associate

In these types of firms which area you work in and who you work with and for is more important in determining your experience than the overall firm. They generally allow managers of departments to operate per their own control and treat the employees in their department how they like.

Employee - Associate

typical investment bank. depending upon department, will deal with Type A aggressive personalities in trading, investment banking, etc.

Employee - Analyst

Less bureaucracy. Less fear. UBS is a good place to work with clever people, but too much energy goes to maintaining the status quo because everyone is too scared of getting fired.

Employee - Analyst

Don't screw up here. Don't expect an amazing place to work or to be stimulated. Just be consistent and detailed and don't devote your life to it expecting miracles in return.

Employee - Analyst

Culture is boring, old, staid. a bit suffocating, but nice people for all that. Nothing wrong with it, nothing much right with either.

Employee - Analyst

Needs to give more responsibility to junior employees and trust their actions.

Employee - Analyst

UBS is well known, so in that sense it is good. Also highly respected.

Employee - Analyst

Has a pretty laid back culture, but a lot expected.

Employee - Associate

People were really great. Not much to change

Employee - Associate

Friendly people in my group

Employee - Vice President

Encourages a work life balance, flexible working hours

Employee - Vice President

Lack of entrepreneurial spirit. Too much bean counting and not enough doing. I don't mean silly stuff but there was a lack of looking at the ROI and potential of an activity.

Employee - Vice President

Best to think Swiss while working here.

Employee - Vice President

Honest and friendly culture but beholden to the mothership in Switzerland.

Employee - Vice President

Great diversity

Employee - Analyst

Instead of looking for a single transaction, look to a longer horizon and plan
