Busy long work days with challenging tasks. Flexible working adjustments, as long as you deliver. There is good management and not so good, depending of the area where you work. Work culture is international, open and collegial, although most employees are so busy that there is no time for networking. Changing priorities and regular re-orgs affect employees making them insecure and less motivated. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed my time at UBS.

Good experience as a contractor there.
Management were very supportive.
The IT set up to get you working is complicated which is to be expected in a bank.

You get to work with lots of professionals, however, Work load can increase daily. You also have access to several trainings and educations within the bank, but the work life balance is usually not considered.

As usual nowadays in all big organizations, the performance review nonsense is just waste of time and energy.
Pros
Big name to work for
Cons
Stressy, Chaos Management style, restricted growth opportunities

Zeitweise über Zeiträume von mehreren Monaten unterbesetzt.
Die Arbeit bietet für eine Backofficestelle viel Abwechslung sowie Kontakt mit Kunden, Verkaufsleitern, Lieferanten und Behörden.

Die Führung unterstützt und fördert den weiteren Karrierewerdegang.

There is no typical day at work, depends on your workplace. I learned a lot in Liquidity and funding field, as well as such measures like LCR, LRD, LCT, ALMM and Flow of funds. I didn't particularly like management style, it was more of ordering around rather than discussion and explanation. Same goes to the culture. Most enjoyable was delivering high value analysis to the stakeholders

IT Management constantly reverses strategy, is paranoid about Business leaders, wastes most of the time on the annual budget cycle.

Desktop computing environment is behind the curve, server environment is technically good, but infrastructure support teams let down by evasive management.


Annual review process is the worst I have dealt with: starts late and finishes early in the year but purports to be for the whole year, and despite management assurances people are still forced into a rating curve.


Real training is very hard to get budget for, most training is CBT whether that is a good delivery mechanism for the subject or not.
Pros
Free banking
Cons
Paranoid, useless management

Typischer Tag auf der Arbeit: Fast keine Abwechslung, Gute Kollegen. Konnte es kaum abwarten, wieder in den Zug nach Hause zu nehmen.

Was ich gelernt habe: Telefonate von verärgerten Kunden entgegen zu nehmen und die Lage zu entschärfen. Des Weiteren habe ich viel über mich selbst gelernt. Zum Beispiel, dass ich einen Job ausüben möchte, bei dem ich Menschen helfen kann.


Management: Schwer zu sagen bei einem Big-Player. Unsere direkten Chefs waren stets korrekt.

Arbeitsplatzkultur: Sie funktionierte, jedoch waren viele unglücklich.


Was ich am schwierigsten empfand: Eine Nummer zu sein.


Was mir am meisten gefiel: Die Zusammenarbeit mit meinen Kollegen
Pros
Das Arbeitszeugnis, welches gerne gesehen wird.
Cons
Keine Abwechslung

Seit 2011 arbeite ich für UBS und habe verschiedene Positionen und Verantwortungen übernommen. Ich schätze die Unternehmenskultur, die nicht nur auf dem Papier steht, sondern auch gelebt wird. Zudem gefällt mir die tägliche Zusammenarbeit mit Kolleginnen und Kollegen aus verschiedenen Nationen und Kulturen weltweit. Toll ist die Möglichkeit (für viele Mitarbeitende) von zu Hause aus zu arbeiten.
Wie bei jeder internationalen Bank besteht ein grosser Kosten- und Wettbewerbsdruck, der zusätzlich durch regulatorische Anforderungen verstärkt wird.
Pros
Homeoffice, Vergünstigungen bspw. für Versicherungen, Reka-Schecks

A typical day at work, one will at least meet 3 to 5 deadlines. I learnt to be structured in executing my task so as to have an over view of my task. Management is constantly demanding more input using professional approach. Desk must always be tidy and must always logoff when I`m not on sit. Multitasking under pressure. Team work with like minded people.
Pros
Flexible working hour
Cons
short breaks

Die Stelle Operations Client Specialist verspricht nichts Gutes und rate jedem Mensch diese ab. Dank der "netten" Teamkollegen (mit der Ausnahme neuster MA), Stv. TL, TL und AL wurde aufgrund Schikane und Unterdrückung diese Stelle frei. Es feht jede Spur von Menschlichkeit und Moral. Die MA werden nach langjähriger Arbeit auf die Strasse gestellt. Die Leistungen sind nicht masgebend, sondern Beziehungen... jämmerlich Schade für die UBS...
Pros
keine
Cons
schwache Führungskräfte, Belohnung und Entlohnung sowie Beförderung aufgrund Beziehungen statt Leistungen

Long days tend to support a social working environment, it seems the people you work with will become your social group after 9 months or less.

So much to learn; UBS represents one of the largest investment banks on the planet, which has played a role in many of the headline finance events over the least 20 years.


The management culture has been fairly flat, self-starters are also welcome, in so much that there's not a hand holding culture.

Most difficult is the realisation that your group and ammunition define your progress: if you're liked, and valued by the right people; your prospects are great. If you believe that hard work and meeting expectations are the route to progression: try the public sector.
Pros
High energy, loads of opportunities
Cons
Personality-driven partially nepotistic culture

A typical day would start by calling clients to sell financial products in order to meet never-realistic financial targets of UBS, intermingled with handling email requests from clients, payment and trading orders, finishing cold coffee and planning the afternoon. In the afternoon, you would enter all contacts of the morning into the system (a lot of typing), while handling client requests, attending conference calls, requesting updates from product partners, drafting emails for clients and updating management on your progress.

You learn to run quickly. You unlearn to think deeply.


Management grows in military-grade, goal-oriented, data-driven environment. They do not believe in the power of creativity, long-term relationships, and individual tailoring. They believe in scalable, fast-track, quick-win solutions. Nothing unusual for a quoted behemoth which has to report quarterly.


Workplace culture is to ignore management and not to take it too seriously. It's a bit like French resistance during occupation.


The hardest part of the job is to keep both the clients and management happy (they want different things).


Besides interaction with clients, the most enjoyable part of the job is that if you manage to remain organised consistently every day, you can actually finish at reasonable time to enjoy the evening (but it takes 2-3 hours to unwind and become normal person).
Pros
Learning curve
Cons
Management and corporate culture
