The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

The placement was enjoyable as it allowed me to network (somewhat) and travel some while being part of a team that was in the begging very active. This however declined thought the year as management changes took place the the opportunities to learn were exhausted.

There was a sense of value at times but ultimately the opportunities to work together as a team were limited extremely limited and so were the networking opportunities.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

I was given some guidance but support was minimal. More often than not I was left to fend for myself with little interest in developing me as a professional in the company.

Dead and anonymous. No one cares about anyone.

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

Little support from HR that mattered in any quantifiable way and my team nether really included me nor allowed me to then plan myself or planned on my behalf.

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

Its been worth for having HPE on my CV but I would not want work here again. Employees are cuffed by politics and the management is crippled by fear of the shareholders.

1/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

There was some but none that was productive.

3/10

Perhaps not as pricy as central London but in no means cheap.

2/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

The area is a dump of unemployment.

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
