...hey, first post here...have been observing for some time...i have read lots of comments about many firms, especially EJ, on this forum, but dont hear/read much about UBS...anybody have any insight about them?  i know they are in a hiring freeze, but I have a second interview/meeting with a complex director...just looking for some un-biased (yeah right) feedback on the company, thier hiring process, internal atmosphere, etc...can a newbie get a little help?

Use the search button.  Someone came on here a few weeks/months ago with the same topic.  You might find some valuable threads on it.

And before you ask on 1) Credit History and 2) Background Checks please use the search button.

...roger that, appreciate the response...credit history fine, background squeeky, no problems there...used the search button, went back 8 to 10 pages and pieced the threads back together and...not much, as far as helpful, relevant info goes...called another UBS office, spoke to an FA with 13 years (he claims) with the company, for about an hour...extremely helpful and nice (a little longwinded), gave me his cell number, has allowed me to call upon him as a resource in the future...so my limited interaction with UBS so far matches their reputation as professional and helpful...why cant senior executives act the same way?  so again, does anyone have any info or even a humorous anecdote or two about life at UBS?  I know, I know, its hard work, thats a given...I was thinking more like, "I work at UBS and I love it because..." or "I worked at UBS and I hated it because..." or even, "Becoming an FA was the greatest decision of my life because..." or even, "Now is/isn't the time to get into the financial field because..." I know it will be difficult to pause from the poop flinging and name calling, but I am looking to draw from the deep well of expertise and knowledge represented on this forum.

You're correct, there is a deep well of expertise and knowledge represented on this forum, but I'd imagine you just smart-a$$ed your way right out of getting any help, Big Boy.

Again. Use the search button.

...ouch...point taken...i was actually shooting for 'pithy' or 'wry humor mixed with a small dose of sarcasm' as opposed to blatant smart-a$$edness, but apparrantley fell short...back to the search button...
