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

Pros

The team I worked with provided me the skills necessary to succeed as an intern in this firm. Further, I was quickly accepted as part of the company and not simply an intern. The firm often promotes and hires from within. This includes hiring interns for full-time positions.

Cons

The firm could improve on the training and responsibilities it provides its interns. I found that I was not being challenged to my full potential by the job responsibilities. Further, I often sought out new assignments from other groups to feel utilized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

i would work on developing a list of job tasks and responsibilities interns can complete if the group does not have specific work for them. Additionally, I would produce and distribute this list on a branch specific basis.

    I worked at UBS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting learning experience for research analyst

    Cons

    layoffs of current employees while hiring new employees at the same time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best way to encourage company loyalty is to retain the good employees you already have and trained rather than lay them off and hire new graduates.

    I worked at UBS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    flexible time, ability to work from home, alots of meeting with ppl around the globe, nice to work with people from different background - learning various cultures

    Cons

    1)investment banks run the company, bad decisions by one or more greedy bankers can kill depts and/or jobs.
    2)advancement comes to mostly Europeans - US employees are looked down upon
    3)Too many meeting often times work needs to be done away from the office or after hours because most of your day was spend in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    very likely if you work close to someone that is climbing the ladder & willing to bring you along.
