I enjoyed my team they were very sociable and welcoming and gave me the advice and help I needed in order to perform well in the tasks I was given. The overall internship helped me see to the extent of what is involved in terms of areas to work for within a bank. This was so eye-opening as there is so much, I feel like its helped me understand what I would appreciate from a job- a more client facing role (more interaction). I did have a good time and it was a good/eye-opening experience but sometimes I struggled with what I could do in terms of workload and I'm not sure it is the area I'd like to work in.
I found my placement extremely enjoyable and insightful. Some of the aspect of my time here that I enjoyed the most have been working alonside other interns to complete out charity challenge. We worked alonside Lloyd's Banking Group with this as we were raising money for their charity partner and I feel this was rewarding. Some parts of the internship were monotonous but I completely understand that this is part of the job and it couldn't be helped, it was brilliant to have supportive and caring colleagues around me who made me feel like I wasn't always slogging or doing work that was meaningless at times where I felt I was doing the same things over and over again. Overall I really enjoyed my placement
This placement gave me the opportunity to live and work in a city that I had never visited before. This meant I was able to extend my network into a working and social culture I was unfamiliar with. I hugely enjoyed this opportunity to expand my cultural awareness. In terms of my satisfaction as an employee my average enjoyment levels were well below average compared to my previous professional experience. This was largely due to the disinterest the company seemed to have in supporting my personal developmental ambitions, the lack of empowerment enforced by a hierarchical nature and the disbelief amongst colleagues in the organisations ability to respond culturally to change.
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship. I had an excellent line manager, which meant from day one I had a number of tasks and responsibilities set out for the 10 weeks' ahead. The internship was very varied, which kept work interesting: the tasks, the people involved and even the locations of doing work were all wonderfully varied.
I did enjoy this internship to an extent in the sense that it was a very valuable experience, in where I did learn a lot but it was quite a challenging environment. I enjoyed carrying out my placement surrounded by a lot of other interns however I feel that the job itself did not match me or the profile that I created when I applied. The role was a lot more mathematical and in a way operational that I would have wanted. Although this was still highly useful in the sense that I learnt a lot of new things it was quite difficult at times as it was not a role I could comfortably and confidently carry out. I did feel very lost in my role at times and at the beginning if I did not have the support network of the other interns I may not have stayed on the placement. I think that as I enjoyed my role so much on my previous internship and I believed that this role was more suited to me and allowed me to flourish a lot more in it. Whereas this role was a lot more challenging and the lack of a team presence here made it very difficult at times.
I've really enjoyed my internship, it was even a lot better than I thought it'd be. I've really enjoyed being part of a great time and I feel as though I've actually made a difference in the work I've done. I have enjoyed the flexibility I've had in my placement in being able to network and partake in activities that suit my interests. The only reason I didn't rate any higher is because I don't think this is the job I want to do in the future.
My internship was really enjoyable as I was welcomed into the team and given tasks to complete that were both relevant to the department and enabled me to challenge myself. Initially, some of the concepts were tough to understand, but once I understood what I was doing and why I was doing it, the role was really enjoyable to fulfil.
I enjoyed my placement to a great extent. I like to have a broad knowledge base and this internship taught me a lot of useful information for my future such as: which savings account to get, how to find a good mortgage, and how retail banking works. I enjoyed the culture in my team and everyone was welcoming.
The people at the company were really nice and welcoming, and I have not had a bad experience with any of them. However, the role I was working in (Finance) was fairly boring, and I do not believe fully utilise the Excel skills I was told would be useful for the role.
I really enjoyed my internship. I felt part of the team and was given real work to complete that were to be viewed by senior stakeholders. This made me feel valued and trusted to contribute me own ideas. As a result, I developed tremendously and my confidence improved greatly. I always felt happy to go into work.
The placement overall was full of learning and discovering which made it very interesting. It was also very diverse in terms of people and work which made the whole experience invaluable. I thoroughly enjoyed the 10 weeks that I spent in Lloyds Banking Group and I look forward to carrying these experiences into my future.
The work placement was challenging but also enjoyable since I was kept busy and there was always something to learn throughout the process. I believe that I have had the opportunity to generate greater knowledge of financial markets and especially the products that my team deal with on a daily basis.
I have enjoyed my internship a lot. My team were very well organised and sorted everything before I started, including setting a development plan journey which I utilised throughout the internship. They made my time very enjoyable, getting stuck in a variety of activities and tasks so that I was able to develop my skills and gain a very good insight to their roles.
I really enjoyed the internship because aside from being placed in a set team at the start, there is so much opportunity to contact and shadow people from all over the company which really helped to expand my insight. The environment here is amazing and every single person is more than happy to help you out and keep you busy.
The 10-week internship was just a right length of period to learn something new. There were many fun events dedicated to the interns. My projects were also interesting and I learned a lot in terms of tax technical knowledge. I worked as part of a team and really learned the value of collaborative team development.
Learnt some very interesting stuff whilst on the internship, and made plenty of great connections which may be of use to me in the future. At times it was a little slow, or not of interest to me, but for the most part I enjoyed the experience working with LBG.
