    I worked at UBS full-time

    Pros

    While the industry was pressured when I joined and throughout most of my tenure, I had a very worthwhile experience here.

    I greatly deepened my knowledge of my sector and products in a way that has served me very well since. While there were the ups and downs you'd expect from any job, I believe my time here has prepared me well to think fast on my feet and approach problems in a professional, analytical manner.

    Cons

    Working for a European bank when I did necessarily subjected me to the quirks of Europe. While unpleasant, I don't think this was unique to UBS and more an industry issue.

    Advice to Management

    Try to provide a clearer path for promotions and clearly memorialize (i.e. write down) what is expected of people to achieve the next promotion.
