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

I had very little contact with my manager but my supervisor provided a good level of support and guidance. However I was expected to work independently most of the time.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I had times when I was very busy and times where I had little to do, but at no point did I feel overwhelmed by workload.

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

Although I had quite a lot of responsibility, the tasks I was doing were not pivotable to the project and my supervisor was usually involved in major changes and decisions.

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

I have greatly improved my proficiency in MicrosoftExcel as well as website design and maintenance. These skills will be very useful for my career. I also received a sounder understanding of management consulting.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Although hardworking, my team were fun and we would have some entertaining discussions. Generally in the office, everybody is quite social and people are friendly, and often say hello.

8/10

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

The actual placement itself was well set up once I arrived, but the application stages were a bit confusing. For example, it was not made clear of whether I was expected to come to London for an interview or an assessment day, or what the timings were. This was an issue for me as I had to book flights from Scotland. It was also difficult to get hold of contacts at Accenture.

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

We had a week of training which was helpful and then most of our learning was done on the project.

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Sports and Social Club
  • Subsidised/Company Gym

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

Very. I would definitely consider working with Accenture in the future, although due to the recruitment timeline, it appears that I will have to wait 2 years before I could join if I were offered a job.

9/10

Social

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

There were events/socials organised for interns, as well as events organised by interns. The ones organised by Accenture were especially good fun.

9/10

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

I found everything very expensive, and towards the end of my internship I tried to bring in my own lunch to save money.

2/10

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

There are pubs/bars around but I only went out a couple of times during my internship so I didn't really experience the night scene.

4/10

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

We had the opportunity to participate in a charity day (which I took up) and there were also clubs and societies available to join.
