Overall I found my placement year at LBG very enjoyable as I was given responsibility and freedom to find work and opportunities which were an interest to me. There was countless opportunities such as shadowing and training days which I involved myself in and every colleague I interacted with was happy to help and even interested in what I had been up to in my year so far.
I did like the placement I was working on as I found the work stimulating and the company was diverse and high-pressured, which I enjoy. My boss was a big harsh to me at times and I didn't feel as though there were always the right support networks in place to help me.
I really enjoyed the internship because it was the first time I worked in a proper office environment. The team was also great and very jolly so I never felt bored. The work that was given to me also helped me develop a lot of skills that will be useful for my future career.
I enjoy my job but at the minute i am more motivated to progress than ever and i cannot see this happening within the branch structure at lloyds. I am looking to further my career and also improve my salary. It was on the whole a very wonderful experience, for which I am grateful.
The internship on the whole was quite enjoyable, though my particular placement wasn't the most interesting. There were other interns in the same stream (finance) that were in more interesting departments. Some of the work was quite repetitive at times, although the overall experience was useful for self-development and building Excel skills.
I though the placement overall was quite enjoyable. It gave me the chance to explore different parts of the business and still have enough work in the department that I was in. I found the charity challenge to be quite fun and a good way to contribute to a worthy cause and meet interns from other streams.
Unfortunately I did not enjoy my internship as much as I had anticipated. The work received was not necessarily challenging or insightful and despite my best efforts to work within various teams, it was made clear that my assistance was required in a team where I was merely uploading attachments from emails onto PEGA for the majority of my placement.
My time within the Debt Capital Markets team was very enjoyable. The first few weeks were slow (but that's the case with most internships), but after I had grasped the basics I was given responsibility of a series of clients and also set a series of long term tasks and projects
I really enjoyed my summer internship within Group Transformation at Lloyds Banking Group. I was given a wide range of opportunities, whether that be presenting my research to the feature team, collating statistical information, preparing powerpoint decks or creating user stories. Lloyds Banking Group provided me with a wide variety of online learning resources as well as in-person training days to truly familiarise myself with agile methodologies, which I found fascinating.
In my opinion, I really really enjoyed my internship here at Lloyds Banking Group. This opportunity allowed me to make lots of new friends and this has helped me increase my network of people. This also allowed me to experience a first-hand office work environment, in which not a lot of people at my age wold experience.
I really enjoyed working at my placement where I was placed in Edinburgh. I even walked to work for over half an hour everyday because it was a lovely city. Overall I learnt a lot, I believe I got a better understanding of the business and the banking industry as a whole.
The placement has been insightful in that it has allowed me to explore my interest somewhat in the business area that I have been placed. However, in saying this I have not found the role entirely interesting. I feel that I could have received more support than given from my manager as well as more difficult and meaningful work tasks.
I enjoyed the internship as I had a 10 week set plan in order to set out my tasks and know my priorities, in which I was then able to work through them accordingly. I had good exposure on networking with different individuals within Lloyds, meeting other interns, and shadowing different areas.
Overall I did not enjoy my internship. It was very difficult to get my team and the wider department to give me any work, and when they did they gave me very little guidance and I was just left to deal with the work entirely myself. This can be good in some circumstances but it happened all the time, right from the very beginning when I couldn't have been expected to understand the work. It may have been because I have done office work before that they decided to give me more independence, but the work was significantly different. Fortunately most of the work I returned was of a good standard for which I received minor praise, but sometimes I would be told that it was completely wrong, despite the lack of instruction. There were indeed some things that were good, in particular when I worked with other teams in the department and also my mini placement at an external company, both of which I thoroughly enjoyed and they showed the contrast between working here and there. One other thing I enjoyed about the internship was spending time in a nice new city, but I do not think this can really be attributed to the actual internship. Also I was really happy to get involved with the charity challenge and I put a lot of effort into it, but my team were unenthusiastic at best which ruined it.
I very much enjoyed my ten week internship at Lloyds Bank Cardnet. It was great to raise my commercial awareness through learning about how Lloyds Bank Cardnet runs as a business. It was also a good opportunity to fill my skills gap in the particular area of Excel and data analysis.
It was really good fun. Some of the work was loads of fun especially the bit on making a test plan which meant I could use my Comp Sci Skills in a useful way. Also enjoyed playing Ping pong at Lunch with another intern and being coached by another colleague.
I enjoyed my internship a lot as I felt like I achieved a lot of personal development. My boss and team were also extremely supportive and welcoming. I got involved in a wide variety of tasks within my team and also was able to shadow different teams of my choice. Overall, I feel like it was a great 10 weeks both from a work and social perspective.
I have had a great internship that has given my many opportunities on the external front, notably reputation management. I have been involved in a very inclusive team that have gone the extra mile to involve me in as many opportunities as possible. All in all this has been great for my development.
I enjoyed my placement but i did find that sometimes, everyone was too busy to answer some of the questions i had. Luckily, i had 2 graduates on the grdauate scheme at my work place to ask. I recieved a steady work load but i would often finish my work really quickly so would be constantly asking for things to do- and sometimes noone offered anything (so i would click around on discover learning to fill my time productively instead).
