  1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  2. By far the most enjoyable work experience I have ever had.
    Great people, interesting work, and lots to learn.


  3. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  4. Atmosphere of genuine friendliness and mutual respect. From partners to paralegals there is no 'looking down' on people whatsoever and people really make their appreciation known when you do something for them. Did not meet a single person I disliked or ever felt like I was just another source of labour.


  5. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  6. Supervisors and trainee buddies very approachable and friendly, and I got the opportunity to ask lots of questions and receive lots of feedback on my work.


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

  8. 7/10

  9. How well structured was the insight?

  10. 9/10

  11. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

  12. 10/10

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

  14. 5/10

  15. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

  16. 8/10

  17. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  18. Company culture is something very difficult to gauge just from research and often insights are necessary to really understand what is going on. We got a lot of opportunities to see and talk to different people from all the departments of the firm and really get to know the feel of the place.


  19. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

  20. 9/10

  22. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  23. Several drinks sessions and a day out bowling.


  24. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  25. Got to speak to lots of interesting people and gel with the ones I met on my vac scheme.


  26. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  27. We were told about the diversity and inclusion networks as well as all the social activities that the firm gets up to (drinks, football, table tennis, charity runs, fairs, balls, etc).


  28. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  29. Yes absolutely.


  30. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
