Positive restructuring in senior management.

Development Manager (Current Employee)
London, England

I have been working at UBS full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have found the environment to be meritorious for good people with good ideas. It is easy to look good if you want to improve things, given the large amounts of inefficient processes that need to be addressed.

The issues with the financial markets have made the company focus on promoting internally people that are looking to construct a better business.

ConsOne has to accept that there are poor processes in these businesses with many legacy systems, so you have to be able to come to negotiate some parts of the organisation that lack efficiency.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
