    Former Employee - Financial Planning Internship in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    I worked at UBS

    Pros

    The group I worked with was very easy to get along with. At first I was not too thrilled about the cold calling aspect but have since learned it is s valuable experience to have on resume.

    Cons

    Often I would not have tasks or projects thoroughly explained to me. Towards then end of the internship when I got to work with FGAs I really had no idea what I was doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training system. Written instructions for reference when there is a simple question to be answered.
