Was very curious on people's thoughts on CS in comparison to UBS. While I realize CS has been a stronger brand in the last few years, I have seen UBS has made a rebound with its focus on pure advisory whereas CS has really struggled. Recently I have been reading that CS is getting hammered as there in no deal flow and their Investment Banking division has really suffered which can be seen in the league table rankings. In the meantime, UBS is 6 in the M&A rankings while CS is at 8 and UBS has $20 billion more in value from M&A.
What are people's thoughts on this? Is working at UBS at this time better than being at CS?
