    UBS is devoting all of its resources toward serving their clients.

    Cons

    The bank continues to consolidate and shrink, so job opportunities may be limited.

    Pros

    The internships program had lots of involvement by higher-ups trying to make the program as useful as possible which was really nice. They were genuinely concerned with us getting the most out of the internship.

    Cons

    The program was still relatively new and therefore was partially put-together as we went. This led to a lot of under utilization of the interns and too few of opportunities to learn about the business.

    Advice to Management

    Give the interns more real responsibilities so that they can walk-away from the interview with knowledgeable and practical skills that they didn't have going in.
