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

Pros

Great responsibilities from the start
Seniors generally willing to help out and mentor younger colleagues
Good exit opportunities
Good training provided
No face time

Cons

Understaffed
Took a long time for HR to deal with people who made the workplace uncomfortable
Employees seem dissatisfied and unhappy generally
Unequal distribution of workload between teams, leaving some without much work and others who are overworked

Advice to Management

Get HR to take quicker action against employees who make the working environment uncomfortable for other people, and reward hard workers with proper bonuses instead of crummy 'Appreciation Awards', or else you are bound to LOSE THEM.
