Re: Does UBS & Credit Suisse do employee monitoring?

Well, just checked and You Tube is definitely not accessible via UBS. As as well as all social media and questionable web-sites.

Just as well, why the hell would I want to sit in the same office earning my salary honestly, when the person next to me spends their sweet time surfing? If it's education the OP is looking for, then do that on your own time. UBS has plenty of internal on-line courses available.

I once worked from 2000 for 7 years within a renowned (still) Swiss financial institution. The Head of the department was fired with immediate effect due to sexual harassment (and cocaine) issues.

I was asked by the CEO to take over his post ad-interim, including his company email. After a few weeks, I had to decline the email bit - as it was majorly porn and so disgusting. I hate to think of the times that I entered his office for a meeting and what he'd been doing over his beautiful view view of Zürich beforehand (and no, this was not UBS).

Also came across a few mails relating to me.

At UBS, the internet use is monitored as necessary - as others have said.
Each employee has signed an understanding agreement / is aware that this is so. Social media sites and so are blocked.

No idea what is tracked, but as others have said guess it is on key words, and whether you're sending email to an account outside of UBS. The terms and conditions are quite clearly laid-out in the UBS policies, so nothing's underhand. As far as activity tracking, I sincerely doubt it - that would be pointless.

A tip to the OP: if you go to work, then work .
You can always use mobile devices in your lunch break.
