I wasnt really doing a job I wanted to do as we got randomly allocated but it was still enjoyable and I got a good learning experience. It was sometimes a bit monotonous but I was doing exactly what the rest of the team were expected to do.
Didnt feel like I could talk to all of my colleagues but the majority I could and felt valued by them.When I did projects for other people I felt valued and they gave me good feedback.
When I asked I was given the support I needed but I felt like I was very much left to my own devices a lot of the time and felt like a time waster when I asked for help.
I always had something to do but it wasnt pressured or stressed.
I had to write reports for seniors which was quite a lot of responsibility and also did my own projects which were important to the team.
I got to develop my Microsoft skills and presentation skills. Its also help me develop an idea of where I want to move career wise
Very head down and get to work but occasionally there was the odd joke, I didnt feel like I could really join in with the humour though
The internship all ran smoothly and events within were outstanding. The graduate team are a real credit to the company.
I was allowed to enrol in training courses...as long as they were free, but these were extensive. My team didnt really spend a lot of time personally training me, it was more learn as I go on my own terms.
Sports and Social Club
Staff Sales/Staff Shop
They really like to see you come back and the graduates all seemed like they had their futures set, but if you join in a non-London location its difficult to move.
Like any where there were cliques with the internt but at events we all bonded and went out for dinner and clubbing. With my team there wasnt much of a social scene out of work.
Clubs and restaurants were a bit upmarket and expensive, I didnt live in the area, instead I commuted in.
Amazing nightlife but expensive!
Im sure there probably was, but nothing I felt I could join in the short time I was there.
