      Working at UBS

      Sep 26, 2021 - Director in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Generally nice bunch of people to work with - Strategy is great - Strong brand, especially in APAC as a Swiss Bank

      Cons

      - Broadly Zero YOY pay increase - Bonus in Group Functions is not commensurate with efforts - Sometimes 'Too Swiss' at decision making- expects perfect execution though it might be the most time consuming and not what market or client wants - Massive cost pressure - IB is not the key focus

      Pros

      Fantastic branding Great office environment Lots of young people

      Cons

      Bonus is so bad (flat 0.5 month for back office ops and not based on performance) Bad yearly pay rise if you are not promoted Very slow promotion The worst of all: You need to fight for promotion like a squid game IF you are not a graduate talent programme (GTP) hire. All resources and salaries goes to GTPs. GTPs salaries are 50%-60% higher than a normal hire that it doesn't make any economical sense. All opportunities are given to GTPs as well. You need to fight like a squid game if you want any additional opportunities in UBS. Overall, a very bad hierarchy and culture and treatment when it comes to GTPs VS normal hires.
