It was a good learning experience but I didn't feel challenged enough.

Software Developer (Former Employee)
North Stamford, CT

I worked at UBS as an intern for less than a year

ProsUBS is a global company with a lot of experienced staff with varied areas of expertise. I met a good number of smart people there from whom I learned a lot and still interact with to this very day.

ConsI feel like I had to go out of my way to get to meet with the higher ups. There was also not that much feedback and transparency on how progress on my work was viewed. I'm uncertain if this was matter of shear coincidence but a lot of people were getting laid off during my tenure there. A lot of employees also complained about the cultural change that came with 2008 financial crisis as UBS didn't exactly emerge unscathed from the debacle.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease communicate more effectively with your subordinates. With more feedback, an employee can better gauge their performance

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
