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

We had two feedback sessions with our supervisors and one with HR and both times a detailed written form was used. We also had computer training and some presentations to improve our knowledge of the firm. I think personal training and development stuff at RPC is excellent and I felt the sessions were useful for us.
