5.0 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Exposure to senior bankers, modeling exposure, exposure to M&A processes (i.e. how a sell-side process is structured)

Downers

Internship was perfect

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I would've known that Powerpoint is just as important as Excel, regardless of product / coverage group. There's a huge emphasis on modeling and Excel-based work during training, but in the end the client is seeing the Powerpoint outputs. Thus, its important that every detail on these presentations be perfectly correct. More emphasis on comment turning / Powerpoint during training process.

Advice to Management

There's nothing I found particularly wrong with the firm. Maybe insource the first week of training to the groups we are in, so that first week of training Is more relevant to what we're going to be doing for the rest of the summer.

Sample Interview Questions

How would you value an apple tree? Why banking?

The culture around summer interns, your internship class, paid and how much you learn over the 10 week period.

The feel of being forced to network rather than have it come naturally.

Advice to Potential Interns

Avoid having a large amount of networking meetings, make them meaningful and for a reason. Also, do not be afraid to ask questions when you don't know something.

Advice to Management

I think it is a very well run firm, I had nothing bad to say about it. Its a great environment to work in and you are surrounded by great individuals.

I enjoy the independence I have as an intern, and the sense of purpose. I truly feel like I have been given the opportunity to add value to my team.

Downers

At first it was difficult to balance events, networking, and time on the desk; however, that was a skill I was able to develop throughout the summer.

Advice to Potential Interns

It is often difficult to assess a company's culture when going through the interview process; however, the inclusive, collaborative culture at UBS was evident to me early on. My advice would be to understand the importance of culture, as that was a major factor in my decision.
