Excellent Learning Experience in a Great Industry with Respectful and Smart People

5.0 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I loved the people I worked with and was truly happy to go into work every day. I also learned more than I ever imagined and truly realized that I want to work in Wealth Management.

Downers

I wish I knew more about what I would be doing, but it was great to learn so much when I got there and it was an easy transition.

Advice to Potential Interns

UBS really is a great place to work with people who care about you. If you care a lot about company culture you should think about working here because they really have their culture figured out.

Sample Interview Questions

Why Wealth Management? Why UBS? How did your past experience get you to this place?

Would You Recommend

Yes

You will learn more and shave more fun in ten weeks at UBS than you could ever imagine - and probably get a great job out of it too

Advice to Potential Interns

Meet everyone on the floor, shake everyones hand and develop as many GENUINE relationships as you can in 10 weeks but also be sure to put yourself in a comfortable position to succeed by the end of the summer so you are in the drivers seat and can ask the tough questions and really figure out if this is the place where you want to launch your career.

Sample Interview Questions

Give me three stock pitches.
What do you think of the markets?
How is Abenomics relevant to the US economy today?
Where is the S&P 500 at?
What is UBS stock trading at?
How are we going to make money today?

Nothing

The best aspects of the internship are the ability to interact with upper management, the ability to work with others, and the responsibility that I was given.

The traveling from office to office took away from my experience.

Talk about the market.
What did you take away from the financial crisis?
Why did the financial crisis take place?

New York, NY | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The amount of attention and investment that the firm has in the internship program. UBS brought in a great group of interns, and I really enjoyed becoming great friends with most of them. It was a great experience to be able to come in and be able to add value and have my opinion respected in meetings and throughout the course of projects. The culture and mentor-ship that UBS showed this summer made the internship a challenging and fun 10 weeks.

Downers

I do not have a bad thing to say about my experience.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are someone who is a leader, works hard and enjoys collaboration and challenge you would be a great candidate. I believe that the ability to work with others is key. If you work well in teams and have a creative and passionate mind, you will have success in this internship program.

Advice to Management

UBS did a great job with all of these topics. I cannot speak to the topic of promotion policies as I did not experience anything involving this over the course of my internship.

Sample Interview Questions

Why wealth management? Why UBS? What is your favorite color and why? One word to define you and why? What is your motivation? Leadership experiences? Teamwork experiences? Would you rather be a fish or a bird and why?

Would You Recommend

Yes
