I loved it, the people and culture at UBS are great! I was unfortunately in the class of virtual interns so i could not get the full feeling of being in the office. The rotations were well suited for me and i was helped through my projects when i asked for help. The managers organised social events in a virtual workspace as well so we all got to meet eachother in a non serious environment.
I didn't expect much from the employer because there was a short time to prepare and completely reschedule the internship. However, I was pleasantly surprised because despite shorter duration, the internship included substantial training and actual tasks, rather than theoretical case studies. Team was very supportive and organized different catch ups as they all understood the struggle to communicate virtually via email. I learnt a lot in a short period time through the team exposure.
I really enjoyed my internship at UBS. It was a really great challenge and felt like I learnt so much over the course of 5-weeks. Originally I wasn't sure how a virtual internship would work but it was organised really well with speaker talks, socials and other really useful events. In addition to that the other interns were all great and I made some really good friends during the internship. I would definitely recommend this internship.
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship, I got the chance to meet lots of new people and learn lots about the business. I was made to feel very welcome and appreciated, and everybody on the team was super lovely and happy to help me out, as well as teach me about their role. I also learnt a lot of technical information which I can hopefully apply to a future job, whether that be at UBS or not.
I had a fantastic time on the virtual internship. I really appreciate all of the effort the staff, especially HR, put into making sure we got to connect with people from all over the firm and with interns as well. They made sure we had social events and that each time we were in different groups. However some of the socials did not work as well virtually. I also really enjoyed the project work I was given and my team was great. Most of the time the work was very engaging and challenging.
It was an extremely pleasant and informative experience. The internship despite being completely virtual due to COVID-19 was well planned and engaging. During the internship, my manager, buddy and teammates were extremely supportive with any questions as well as with feedback. I was given timely and constructive feedback that was great for learning essential skills and gaining a better understanding of the firm and the project my team was working on. The entire experience was very positive.
It was an incredible enjoyable experience, very interactive despite the fact that the spring week was conducted virtually due to the pandemic. All of the activities were incredibly insightful and easy to follow. I would recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about banking in general! It was great!
I really enjoyed the insight week. I gained a lot of information about the different roles within UBS. I also enjoyed the interactive case study we did. My favorite session was the innovation Lab, but I believe the overview in the financial service industry was the useful in terms of information. What I believe was missing actually seeing inside the office, but this was something out everyone's control.
The insight was thoroughly enjoyable, with hosts <strong>This section of the comment has been removed by a member of the RateMyPlacement Team because it did not meet our site terms and conditions</strong> having put a great deal of effort into the program. I feel like I have got a greater perspective into what working in the financial industry would entail and, considering the difficult circumstances with coronavirus, we still had a great variety of different speakers and contacts.
Despite un unforeseen circumstances, this virtual programme was incredibly insightful and engaging. We had many diverse sessions, from interactive quizzes to in-depth talks from professionals from many different UBS departments. I learnt an immense amount over such a short period of time and really felt connected with the speakers/other participants.
UBS's insight program was useful in learning about various parts of the business. Despite the pandemic, the HR team did a great job and clearly did a lot of work to transform the program into something that worked with the remote format. There were adequate breaks and everyone was friendly.
Even though it was a virtual insight, plenty of opportunities were given to learn more about the firm and the different business divisions. The insight was kept interactive so it was tailored to our questions and queries about the industry. The interactivity was kept up through occasional brain teasers, quizzes and games and we were encouraged to give feedback and participate in challenging discussions.
I really enjoyed the insight, I found the information we received very relevant and informative. The culture of UBS came across very positively and the people who spoke were friendly and very helpful. I thought the insight was well structured and I am really pleased I had the opportunity to partake in it.
In the beginning, I didn't really know what to expect. When the spring weeks were canceled because of COVID-19 it was by far the event that frustrated me the most. However, the insight program was a lot more interactive than I expected, allowing us to ask as many questions as we wanted and even speak through the microphone. When speaking to a classmate that had participated in an insight program at another bank, she told me that they barely had an opportunity to interact with the speakers. I think that's what made this program so fun and informative and has really allowed me to gain insight into the different areas UBS can offer.
