Great insight on the careers at UBS and opportunity to talk to operationals who make themselves available for you. I loved how everything was very well planned and the planning very well respected: started and finished on time. There is also opportunity to meet and talk with almost all the other students which is not always the case elsewhere.
I really enjoyed my internship at UBS. I managed to learn loads throughout the 9 week period and quite importantly, I was able to network with a range of different people. The environment was very friendly and the facilities at UBS are brilliant, right from the gym, to the agile working desks and focus rooms.
This internship allowed me to get involved with several projects from day 1 and contribute new ideas. The projects were meaningful and my contribution was appreciated. Everyone who I reached out too were friendly/ helpful and often made time in order to meet to discuss their roles within their division.
I had a very enjoyable summer at UBS. The company is awesome. The office is great and the work is interesting. There were lots of speaker series, workshops, social events and other events which kept us busy, even if work was slow. I would happily return to the bank in the future and would recommend to anybody interested in a career in banking.
I enjoyed the whole of my 2 month internship due to the work, the people and the company itself. I was trusted with real work that was needed by my colleagues and so I could get a real feel for the work they do day to day. Everyone made me feel really welcome and were always willing to sit down with me and help me understand things further.
It was a fantastic experience. The work was dynamic and stimulating, working on pitches and deals for companies that were worth millions-billions of dollars. The team was incredibly friendly and willing to help you learn and make the most of your internship. They stressed the importance of working sustainably and efficiently, which made the entire experience feel productive and worthwhile.
Throughout the internship I was exposed to different, interesting parts of the business and worked with many people, so that gave me enough exposure to get insight into the industry and made me thoroughly enjoy all 9 weeks of the internship
I enjoyed the placement, learnt a lot and gained valuable insight into the industry and the company. The company has a great culture and encourages speaking up from all employees no matter the status. I was given responsibility from the get go which helped me learn a lot quicker and in more depth than had I just been shadowing within the bank.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the internship and couldn't have asked for a better experience and introduction into the banking industry. I had so much exposure to so many different areas which I found invaluable when I knew very little about the industry prior to starting. The opportunities provided are vast, which is what has made it so enjoyable.
A thoroughly enjoyable internship. UBS were clearly very prepared for their yearly intake of summer interns and everything was very well planned and communicated, particularly the first week of talks and training. Once I joined my desk it was immediately clear how friendly everyone at UBS is and learning about the investment banking industry is fascinating.
The people are very helpful and aid you wherever necessary. The role itself has a good learning curve and so as an analyst (and graduate), you will be taking in a lot. The issue arises from the culture that has always been around banking. Unnecessarily long hours, doing sometimes pointless work can leave you feeling underwhelmed and unable to make an impact as a junior.
