    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I had a great time due to my very ambitious associate who taught me a lot. I like the company and the culture. Everyone is very open and helpful.

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • It is difficult to activily contribute and face clients since ECM only deals with super senior management and is very complex.

    4/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Like already mentioned, my associate took really good care of me and without her I wouldn't have learnt as much as I did.

    4/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Depending on the market it can get very busy very suddenly. Otherwise my team has a strict no-face time policy, which I appreaciate a lot.

    4/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Like already said, difficult to get a lot of responsibility since the team only interacts with the absolute senior management of a company.

    4/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Average, since I study Management. But it did help me indeed in understanding the market better and also convinced me to start my carreer in that field.

    3/5

    The Company

    4/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

    5/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

  • Very appealing. If I will get an offer I will sign.

    5/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • Fellow interns are very nice as well. Not too much competition, though have to say that I was the only intern in my team and thus did not have to compete with someone directly.

    4/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • London is pretty expensive. But internship is paid quite ok.

    3/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • London offers everything, so good nightlife. question is rather if you have time to go out or if you're stuck in the office.

    3/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • Opportunities yes, but no time.

    3/5
