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

    Pros

    There was a great environment. Everyone was willing to help out and be productive for the greater good of the clients. All the people in the office were very helpful.

    Cons

    There were some poor sections like the fact that each group is run pretty much independently and there was some cross-section among the groups so there was no synergies.

    I worked at UBS

    Pros

    I found UBS a place that presented the opportunity to grow if you were willing to put in the time. I appreciated feeling free to bring ideas too the table. Even if they weren't accepted having the option of being heard was a privilege.
    I always felt like part of a team.

    Cons

    Unfortunately when you work for a big company, budgetary problems, have you seem as part of a group. Rather than an individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know UBS demands the upmost in professional workers.
    Please look at them more individually rather than a department . I was a dedicated employee and appreciated my time.
    Any training invested in me was never wasted. I would have stayed there forever, It may be impossible for me to come back , but I am sure there are many workers with the same attitude as I. I hope they continue to be employees of UBS.

    Pros

    Good entry level internship for the financial industry. An internship here will help you decide if becoming a financial advisor is for you.

    Cons

    The cold calling can get down right monotonous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New marketing techniques and more options for interns to talk to warm leads.
