Financial Control (Former Employee) –  London2 November 2018
Outstanding experience from the start. As with large companies there are problems. Since 2008 where the fear of job security (which is no longer) there major issues I found was silos and the sharing/handover of knowledge. All in all UBS was a fantastic place for me which enabled me to evolve into a much better professional.

UBS is focused on getting the best for the client. It has a good work/life balance allowing flexible working where possible. As long as work was completed, there was no issues around leaving on time.

Working at UBS
Analyst (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London27 September 2018
The team and department I worked in are hard working but the atmosphere is fairly relaxed. Senior management encourage people to come up with initiatives to foster teamwork, collaboration and a better work/life balance. It isn't a bad place to work, it depends which part of UBS you end up and as with every job what type of boss you have and the type of colleagues you have around you.

Used to be work hard play hard
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London16 July 2018
The investment bank suffered poor management up to and through 2012 with the fixed income and currency department being scaled back dramatically. Redundancies resulted in the lack of retention of knowledge. The bank sought to change its culture but has struggled to find a new identity.
Pros
Flexible working
Cons
Poor management and job insecurity

Great work life balance
DIRECTOR | HEAD OF CONFORMANCE (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London19 March 2018
The organisation is good for work life balance and they promote this a lot e.g. paternal/maternal leave sharing, part-time, remote working etc. Employees in general appreciate the flexibility. Overall, a good place for work life balance.
