    Interning at UBS Financial Services has been a great experience

    Current Employee - Summer Intern in Cookeville, TN
    Current Employee - Summer Intern in Cookeville, TN

    I have been working at UBS as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Get to assist FAs with some analysis
    - Have the opportunity to learn a lot about the industry
    - Have the opportunity to build a vast array of business contacts
    - The internship is what you make of it, so if you are determined and hard working you an definitely create some great opportunities for yourself

    Cons

    - Occasionally had to answer phones
    - Sometimes the summer can be a little boring since there aren't as many projects that need to be completed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about your smaller offices and branches.

    Former Employee - Registered Client Service Associate in Jersey City, NJ
    Former Employee - Registered Client Service Associate in Jersey City, NJ

    I worked at UBS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    UBS has a strong brand
    Can get licensed (Series 7, 66)
    Easy work and 8:30-5:30 hours
    Most co-workers are enjoyable and young

    Cons

    Horrible work environment, no room to grow and horrible pay. Morale is extremely low.
    This is a call center and is the bottom of the barrel at UBS. The Investment Center takes everyone's trash and management is full of Yes-Men who offer no value. As a CSA your work is mundane and boring you gain no transferable skills and if you get promoted to a "Financial Advisor" you become a call center customer service rep.
    Management is a joke. They play favorites, do not reward hard work and are unprofessional. Days go by without your work getting approved or processed by the operations manager. If you do not agree with management they will hold a grudge. Management will also make it difficult for you to make any type of internal transfer within UBS. Management will be very spiteful and make sure you do not leave.
    No one cares about clients. The Investment Center is around to just collect fees. No discount, nothing waived.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management of UBS should start over. This place doesn't work in its current form. There is potential, but fresh faces need to be brought in to turn it around.
