A somewhat rigid and and strict environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A somewhat overly strict and rigid work environment. Sometimes seems that everyone is out for their own success. Advancement limited at times.

Entretien d’embauche bafoué

J’ai eu un entretien d’embauche à la limite c’était un examen de math. Aucune question sur mon expérience ou mes compétences clés liés au poste. 5 personnes pour faire l’entretien, 4 n’ont pas mis leurs caméras. Ils ont par contre demandé à ce que j’active la mienne. J’ai trouvé cela très déplacé. Manque de considération évident je n’ai pas souhaité poursuivre avec cette équipe.

Cons

Manque de considération, pas de préparation ni avertissement aux candidats.

Management with volatile vision

Work used to be interesting. Now not anymore given lack of consistent vision from senior management. Poor bonuses, not reflective of the hard work employees put in

Sclerotic management

Rigid, hierarchical organization that fosters mediocrity. While they hire some good people, the poor leadership and lack of direction drives them out. It might be better in the less Swiss dominated areas but one of the worst places I’ve ever worked.Don’t look for raises or promotions. They’re slow to advance people.

Pros

Good work life balance- no one is working that hard

Cons

Mediocrity and lack of advancement

Great company

This is by far the best company I have ever worked for. Everyone is helpful and inviting. The pay is amazing and benefits are great; not to mention the time off.. I will definitely be retiring from this place.

Pros

Unlimited

Cons

I have none

Rewarding and Challanging at the same time

An amazing work-life balance. Management is supportive but pay is far behind competitors. Depending on your team, the environment is very global and you deal with a wide variety of people.

Full of Hypocrite Management

They do NOT do what they say. They will force you to do something which is against policy and you will end up ruin your career.No work life balance atleast in my department, they will expect you to work on weekends. High attrition rate, even people do not accept counter offers. I will not recommend anyone

Pros

Leaves, Health insurance

Cons

Long hours, weekend work

Its a great job for someone who doesn't mind doing the same thing everyday.

The job is easy once you learn what to do. It is also all remote so that is a plus. If you don't put any effort you wont move forward and you will not get a raise but thats a given at every job. The job can also get very redundant after a while but if you don't mind a basic structure and don't mind doing the same things everyday this job is great for you. The work to life balance is also great, I never had a problem requesting days off and I was never required to work overtime but the option is available. Also if you are bilingual make sure you use that as a tool to negotiate a higher salary because you will be translating documents for your peers who only speak English.

Respectful workplace but check team carefully

- Respectful culture.- Work life balance tends to be good in most teams, but some (or even which project within a team) can be bad. For some team members they feel it's normal to work after midnight and on weekends, this creates a bad culture where it is like the norm to put in that kind of effort, and in turn, management and users expect this is kind of speed we can deliver.- Probably common to a firm like this - base salary increase is hard to come by, promotion is hard to come by, but red tapes are easy to come by (though not as draconian as, and easier to escalate and get exception, compared to the larger firms). - Some good tech frameworks to learn from.

Global align and good benefits

Benefits is good and office is very lovely new renovated but pay increment is very slow. Colleagues are nice to work with with and work culture is pretty good

demotivating

You negotiate well at the time of joining because after that increments and promotions are not the general "policy" of this organization. Also, you are better placed in European locations than in the US as this organization has an implied bias towards low cost centers such as India and power centers Zurich and London over US locations.

Cons

Insurance Premiums are sky high.

good culture, more humane than other big banks

Very European culture, more friendly than other big banks. be prepared of lack of promotion. Don't see promotion happens often. its great for people looking for a stable job.

Pros

friendly

Cons

lack of advance opportunities

Good beginner job

Good beginner job but there was really no room for growth unless you were very self motivated. The pay was very low. It had to be made up through base, commission split with broker, and a little bonus. Annual company bonus was very small.

Great company

Great company to work at and the people are great. Investment banking is hard work but it will pay off if you are interested in the industry and want to grow there.

Corporate esque

Depending what team you're on it could be good. If you get your name known you can advance your career easily, however if you dont you can be very stagnant.

Pros

Great benefits Friendly people great starting job to kick off your career

Cons

Difficult job/career advancement ( you need to be "known" ) Required weekend work

Ok company to join

You can negotiate good hike while joining .. after that it’s pathetic. Slow promotions . Anyone hardly gets promoted beyond mid manager level . Not very exciting.
