I enjoyed this internship very much. It was well though out, with 2 weeks of training followed by 3 weeks in the business team. All the people from Nomura that I met were very open, supportive and helpful. Due to COVID-19, the internship had to be changed into a remote format but the HR team was very accommodating and helped me make the best of it.
The internship was excellent. I highly enjoyed the combination of interactive training, rotating group projects, and desk-specific work. While being placed with a trading desk, I was given many chances to learn about the sales and structuring teams (and to a smaller degree the quant and risk team). Beyond the internship structure, the enthusiasm of Nomura's employees stood out and resulted in a great working atmosphere.
I have been positively surprised by the experience because I did not expect to work and learn as much as I did given the particular context. I met amazing people who I could relate to, have been highly exposed to one deal in particular and was able to show my competencies. However I give a 7 because working with a personal PC was not practical, I met several issues with my computer, probably because it was a Mac that couldn't match well with Nomura desktop. Furthermore, the internship was shortened to 5 weeks instead of 9.
I really enjoyed the first 2 weeks of training. Unfortunately, I believe that 3 weeks on the desk were not enough to fully understand the job and bond with the team members. Further, I did not understand why there is no rotation among teams, especially since the teams are completely different from one another. The level of difficulty of the final project was really different depending on the team. Some of the interns had extremely easy projects, while others extremely difficult ones. Finally, the worst thing happened in our very last week when we were told that the company was not making any offer.
I really enjoyed the Nomura 5 week virtual internship. The internship was planned incredibly well, especially considering the last minute changes and rearrangements due to COVID-19. The initial training (2 weeks) was a huge learning curve but exceptionally effective, as it provided us with a great base from which to build. HR had clearly made efforts in getting us to meet senior MD's across the IBD division, which were great opportunities to network and learn. Furthermore, the team in which I sat made great effort to teach and guide me, and it was clear there was a culture of ethics, teamwork and collaboration.
I greatly enjoyed the IBD summer internship experience at Nomura, despite being virtual this year because of the global pandemic. Firstly, the training we had for 2 weeks with Financial Edge was incredibly thorough and professional, and I also loved that interns were given actual live work to help their teams giving us a genuine taste for what an analyst position would involve on a day to day basis.
I enjoyed it a lot! Whilst obviously not as in-depth as a 'normal' internship, it definitely felt as if Nomura tried their best to provide us with a well-rounded and engaging programme, and didn't skimp on any aspects. I felt that overall it was a fairly good balance of being challenging, but not impossible. I certainly enjoyed working with other interns, as I met lots of interesting people who were able to challenge my views and teach me new things.
Really amazing experience! An absolute credit to everyone who managed to organise the first virtual internship at Nomura. I can say that I absolutely loved it and thought that the experience was not brought down by the fact it was virtual. Everyone made such an effort to help the interns throughout the 5 weeks and I learnt an incredible amount in the short time. Weekly presentations made it possible to get to know the other interns and speak to many areas of the business.
The summer internship at Nomura International PLC has been amazing in my opinion. I had the chance to meet many other guys with whom I has the opportunity to speak and share ideas even if virtually. Moreover, the human resources team did a great job in setting everything up in the best way possible. The training we did at the beginning of the summer internship has been super useful and the teaches very helpful. I would recommend doing a summer intersnhip at Nomura!
