Unreasonable worklife balance

Having worked here a for several years now, I can honestly say that I would never recommend any of my friends or relatives to work for UBS despite the monetary incentives available for this. Whilst pay seems to be akin to what you might expect, most roles will kill your lifestyle balance. There are so many people off with stress, and not just for short periods, but for extended periods of time. Mistakes are rife, corners being cut and it really affects moral. Your colleagues are the best point about working there which is often said. It makes the job fun, and interesting at times. It has certainly made me think twice about leaving so far. Lots of challenges day to day which makes the job interesting and fulfilling at times. Management has their head in the clouds and are all about how they look amongst their peers across the group rather than for the client or employees. Too busy patting each other on the back, rather than actually addressing issues in their teams. Lots of mixed messenging from management. I think the management issues is result of the way Performance is measured in the company. It's based on relative performance, and not actual performance. If people leave then it is a battle to replace, as every management function is looking to cut costs. A positive is that there is a lot training and development tools available to the individual, but little or no time to take advantage due to workload and stress. Lots of opportunities to take part in volunteering locally, but again, I don't know anyone who has time to do this, so it is pointless. Offices are spacious and - 

Pros

Peers and colleagues, good opportunities if you have time to explore them, Nice workplace

Cons

Pros: Work life balance is a joke, Management often do not back up what they say, Feel like things are not moving forward

Best Place To Work

The culture and infrastructure of UBS is really good and is a very good place to work at. Office building and its surroundings are very good. We actually look forward everyday to go to office.

UBS is a great place to work

Great people and an understanding culture. They want to do things the right way which is refreshing. There is always plenty of work and tight deadlines so you have to work hard but management is generally excellent.

Productive and flexible workplace

UBS is a good place to work. Balance between work and family life is encouraged at UBS. Working with UBS I was able to provide leadership to UBS global delivery teams as Senior Project Manager, in managing end-to-end delivery of Identity and Access Management (IDAM) transformation projects, Application Migration and Infrastructure upgrade. Implement Single Sign-On (SSO) and Authentication Services (1FA and 2FA/Multifactor Authentication) on UBS platform with CA Strong Authentication and CA Risk Authentication products for use by external clients. .

Difficult work environment

Dealing with many different people who have conflicting agendas. Changing divisional heads brings new strategies that potentially adverse affects employment prospects.

Professional place to work

Working times are standard with high quality workforce. Workplace culture is defined by the 3 keys. Hardest part is solving key issues whilst trying to penetrate layers of management. Best part are the people.

Many opportunities to grow

Decent place if you have a career at one bank. They have good facilities and the canteen is good if you like your food. Great opportunity to see the world in other offices.

too much work

it depends upon in which process you get in and depending upon the work load the whole experience is based. I was working in London, where it was quite busy and the balance was just fine.

Enjoyed working in a team

Working in Wealth Management and supporting the Operations area. A team of four risk managers plus a line manager - this helped me to learn new skills working with others.

Challenging, always changing environment

Is a great place to work if you want to be left to your own devices, however not always a clear or supportive path for career progression. On the positive side there are some great teams with some great collobration and they support flexible working arrangements as well.

Pros

flexible working

Cons

Career progression

good exposure

Great platform to learn and develop. Compared with other banks, UBS gives junior more responsibility, which means much higher expectations but also fast learning curve

Good company

Very good premises/facilities, incredible leaders, the clients and stakeholders are really the best of the industry. Negative point would be on the salary and bonus side. UBS do not increase salaries (even just by the inflation rate) and the only way to get promoted or have a pay rise is to move to the competition, which is unfortunate as UBS is a very good company to work for.

Not really a good place to work in reference to the employees

Management was not great. Always a busy day on a daily basics. Work culture was just manageable. There is flexibility working time. Ability to multitask.
