The Role



The Role

Role Description

Project and implementation of automated acceptance tests system.

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

It was really a very interesting experience for me, and something totally different from my all previous placements.


2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

I think the atmosphere in my team was very open - and I think everyone was willing to hear my opinion. I won't say though that they were like family - there was no team integration after work.


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

I was a bit a holiday time in the company, so the problem was that I had to seek for guidance by different members of my team based on availability of them.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I had to manage this by myself, there was no pressure at all, so in the beginning I felt a little bored, but later on I started to pick more and more tasks.


5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

There was not much personal responsibility, because most of the decisions were made by the whole team.


6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I cannot say, but I think organisation skills I gained are going to be very useful for planning even non-work related tasks.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Working in open space is really enjoyable - there is always a chance to have a talk with everyone.


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

I think it was really really good... Can't see a serious flaw in it.


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

Members of my team always were there to give me very good explainations, there were also some department-wide lectures and discussions, as well as training for all the interns.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Sports and Social Club
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Staff Sales/Staff Shop

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

The salary for next position is not very impressive... although working with them was really good.



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

There were only two events in two months...


13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Everything is expensive in London...


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



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

I think there were, but I wasn't that interested in them because of other non-work related tasks I had to finish.
