This review was submitted over 4 years ago, so some of the information it contains may no longer be relevant.
Mostly varied interesting work in which I was learning . At times I was more of a production line member (but alongside management grade employee) as everyone pitched in for a specific project, or just spending far to long slogging through reports plus the odd patch of downtime twiddling my thumbs.
I was free to make suggestions which were listened to and given a good amount of responsibility throughout the year.
Regular reviews and feedback from my manger in a structured program which all the students follow.
Very variable work load with some dead periods while waiting for external providers. Equally I was never overworked and the entire team was very relaxed.
I was given many smaller projects but with a considerable degree of management oversight.
Relaxed and easy-going both in the open plan office and in meetings. However it is quite a mature office.
Plenty of opportunity to work in areas I was interested in and were relevant to my degree
