Enjoyed it greatly. Everybody was very welcoming, friendly and helpful during my time there. This was reflective of the company culture in place there.
Felt very valued by my colleagues. After a month or so I was given numerous responsibilities which entailed reports that needed to be sent to our Global HQ to participating in numerous projects to help meet various objectives set for your department.
Fantastic support right throughout the placement. Everybody was very friendly and approachable and with the offices being open planned, it meant that you always had some form of support. My line managers in particular have guided me through a range of tasks and taught fantastically.
Usually quite busy with a range of responsibilities to carry out as well as usual day to day tasks. There was the odd quiet day but usually kept busy.
I believe that my line managers had confidence and trust in me to carry out a range of tasks.
I think they'll help greatly as I've been able to obtain experience of office life and working in a professional environment. My learning on this placement was well rounded so I was able to learn a lot of new skills.
Always an upbeat atmosphere. As it was open planned it meant everyone was open to conversion/help and not hidden away somewhere else.
As we were the first placement students at RCI it was new for them too. I felt it was very well organized and the training was quite well structured.
I felt the company invested a great amount in us in terms of training and development. When I asked to have experience of another department, this was set up for me with relative ease to further assist my learning.

Working from home
At the moment there is no structure in place to offer a graduate role or a job offer after graduation.
Not just the students, but a lot of the full time staff are social too.
It's Watford, so a fairly typical night out.
