    Pros

    Good atmosphere; good benefits; in Private Wealth Management, your team is your lifeblood...so if you find a team that you like and is successful, then you can be set for a long time.

    Cons

    Big bank; therefore this means there are limitations to how fast you can move up vertically. Management is content to keep you content in an entry level role for as long as they can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivize talent to stay somehow.

    Former Employee - Intern in San Jose, CA

    I worked at UBS part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hourly wage was very competitive in comparison to local companies and firms around the San Jose area. The upper level management was always willing to provide me with guidance and never turned down one of my questions.

    Cons

    The amount of responsibility that you are given is very low in comparison to the amount of responsibility that my friends were given in their internships. You really do not learn much at all that will benefit you in the future.

    I worked at UBS as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working with UBS is the people you encounter. Everyone is very welcoming and understanding of where you come from because everyone in the business either had your interests before or knows people like you.

    Cons

    The job itself can get very boring and repetitive. Staring at stocks all day or just making cold-calls is not the kind of job for you if you want instant results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some way to make a day on the job more interesting.
