I thoroughly enjoyed the placement and the fact that the company got me doing an actual job as opposed to typical 'work experience' jobs. Would have been 10 stars, has I not been there during the time of the merger with HBOS as sometimes this led to colleagues being very stressed & confused and this feeling would rub off on others.
I was made to feel very involved with current projects and took on some roles where I could really contribute to the business. There was some work that was more dull and administrative, but I felt this was well balanced with more interesting and more challenging projects I was involved in.
I feel the placement definately prepared me for my final year and I learned a lot but I sometimes felt that the work did not stretch me enough and I worked for the company at a very difficult time with a number of changes occuring as a result of the economic climate and the integration with HBOS.
PLEASE NOTE: This review was for a placement at Lloyds TSB prior to Lloyds TSB merging with HBOS to become Lloyds Banking Group. (The RateMyPlacement Team) I really enjoyed my placement, LTSB were great at noticing my own ambitions and gave me a great deal of responsibility to ensure that I challenged myself to the the full.
