    Hiring (At Some Point) Watch ’12: UBS

    The Swiss bank is said to be making the young ones wait to hear if there’s room at the inn.

    “UBS is delaying return offers to summer analysts in S&T from late August to God-knows-when. Reason provided: “It’s difficult to bring key decision makers together due to 2-weekers [taking their mandatory vacation]”

    Bonus Watch ’12: UBS

    Numbers for first and second year analysts (who are not happy).

    “It’s been two weeks since UBS numbers came out and nobody wants to talk about it, for obvious reasons. Second years (base: 80k) ranging 45-65k and heard of some first years getting around 40k (base: 70k). And they could only achieve these numbers (“in line with the street”) after firing 30+ analysts right before communication day.”

    Bank Of America Doesn’t Understand That Junior Mistmakers Are Special

    If it did, the BAC would be treating its li’l bankers as though they were individuals with unique talents rather than lumping them together and calling them all by the same name. Anyway, here are a few more details about Brian Moynihan et al’s plan (announced yesterday) to fire a bunch of senior people and bus teams of junior employees around wherever they’re needed to pick up the slack.

    From the front lines:

    “Worord is BofA will merge junior banker resources into several broad “superpods” across the bank. Appears to affect analysts, associates, and some VPs. Also some rumors that the juniors making up the superpods might be co-located. Essentially they just became that much more interchangeable and replaceable and commodified. Politics and turf battles here between groups are pretty bad as it is…this is only going to make it 5000x worse.”
