Any insight into UBS titles/salaries? Recruiter said $170k is the max base salary for “Director” roles. Am I being low-balled? Would like to know more before they call me for in-person interviews.

EY1 - Thanks for the info. Do you work at UBS? If so, which group are you referring to when you say IT?

That’s low. Family member works there at a similar role and makes a lot more than that.

K1 - Can you share the numbers please?

Sounds about right. UBS titles are a bit inflated. I think Director there is VP in most iBanks. And $170base would make sense. Remember bonuses are much larger than in consulting.

Thank you. Any idea what the bonus % range would be?

UBS titles are extremely inflated. Director is about equivalent to inbetween AVP and VP at a JP Morgan type bank. Most Directors are still individual contributors, with Executive Directors being team leads/line managers, and Managing Director is where you start getting into real "management" positions there. With that said $170k seems like a low ceiling. Probably just the cap for the role or the cap for YOU in that role.

Good to know. Thanks for the insight

10% bonus is on the lower end. I worked at a bank in the mid-back office. I'd say Director is at most banks leveled as SVP. That said the bonus should be at 20-25%. I was making 7.5% as an AVP and 15% as a VP on bonus. That being said lots of VPs were at 10% where I worked. G luck!

Thank you for your input. Appreciate it.

Director role at ubs is equivalent to VP/Manager. Most directors at UBS are responsible for a process and/or managing a group. I would say 170k is about the max for director role at UBS. Bonus on an average year would be about 10%.

SC1 - Which groups did you work for? How was it a shit show?

170 is not the cap for D. They bring on exp hires at that level for 180-200 with <5 yr exp.

M1 - I agree. The Director role at UBS which I was interviewing for needed 15 years of experience. U1 - In which group have you seen Directors with less than 5 years of experience?

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
