About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I loved the three weeks that I spent here. I gained a great understanding as to what the firm expects from its intakes and also the manner in which it conducts its business. I couldn't speak more highly for it.

10/10

2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

Especially in the last week when the team were busy, I was extremely valued. I was helping on a transaction and the other side were contacting me directly to make sure everything was in order. If that isn't considered being part of the team I don't know what is!

I had a lot of support. If I had any questions whatsoever about a task I would just go up to the person who gave me the task and ask as any questions as I wanted.
