The Role

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

I have had the best year of my life - I can't recommend a Warner Bros placement enough.

10/10

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

I felt very valued and a real asset to the team. My team was fairly small so although I was an intern I was an integral part of the team.

10/10

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

My manager was great at giving feedback, we had weekly catchups to cover my priorities and what I had previously done.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was very busy. My team was small so I was supporting a number of people - I don't see this as a negative however as I was always working on varied projects.

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

I felt like an integral part of the team and was given projects to head up which was great. I felt I was given as much responsibility as I wanted to take on, whilst still being able to ask for help when needed.

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

I am not sure how far the skills learned will get me with my degree. Practical skills like time management, prioritisation and project management are all skills I will take back to uni. I think the skills I learned on placement will primarily help me more when I am back in a corporate environment after uni.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

My team were very fun, and the wider department were all lovely. Everyone was always up for a quick chat. There are also so many other interns that you have an immediate network which is great as there was always a friendly face around.

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

Seamless.

10/10

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

There is a specific development programme for the interns which covered personal presentation skills, time management skill, project management skills and specific IT training. I think the development of the interns is a great perk of the internship scheme at WB.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

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

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

There is no set graduation scheme so there's no guarantee that interns can return, but I think you are in a better position for future roles at WB if you have the internship on your CV.

5/10

Social

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

Yes - there are so many interns that there is tonnes of socialising. It's very fun.

10/10

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

It's London so rent was quite expensive and drinks are v expensive. Just look out for a great happy hour..

3/10

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

Great - the office is very close to Soho/Covent Garden so there are bars and restaurants everywhere nearby.

10/10

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

Yes there are opportunities if you look for them. I volunteered to help at Comic Con this year which was an experience.
