UBS Equities is highly political where friendships are a matter of political convenience, rather than relationshps based on loyalty. Men openly debate female colleague's sexual appeal and place bets on "hookups." There is also a clear gender gap at UBS for pay. There are two redeeming qualities. First, UBS allows flexible, part-time schedules for working mothers. Second, UBS knows they have a women problem and are trying hard to promote women in leadership positions.

If you want to work in sell side finance, there aren't many choices. Plus, UBS might be a good choice for working moms who want a flexible, part time work schedule.

Amazing family friendly culture and great parental leave policies! Everyone in my group is very supportive, flexible and caring. The only downside is that there is a tendency, in my opinion, to push women towards more traditionally female roles within the firm regardless of background or competencies.

I've experienced first hand the flexibility of working as a mom. The company accommodates me with a flex work schedule and has a fairly generous maternity leave policy (16 weeks fully paid).

While I was just an intern, I think UBS Wealth Management is a great place for women who want to tone down their working hours. An MD I spoke with during my summer there transferred to UBS for more work life balance because the business model of UBS Wealth Management Americas is much less stressful for those who work in the corporate headquarters.

Senior management is watching and keeping tabs on your work and hours. They form quick impossible to change opinions. Plan to invest 12 hour work days for the first 6 months to a year, then you can relax a bit.
