The work was challenging and interesting, and it felt like my project was useful to the company. I got on well with the others in my team and the company and I enjoyed working there this summer,
My colleagues made me feel welcome and feedback was always avaliable if I wanted it.
Manager was often away but everyone else in the team was always happy to help if I needed anything. There was always something for me to do so I was rarely bored.
Once I got into the main project and had picked up enough to actually help there was always something to do. Occasionally I was bored but never overworked.
My manager let me have quite a bit of choice over what I did on the project but ultimately design choices were left to him.
The programming skills will probably be useful in my final year, and especially beyond that as I hope to work in the software industry in the future.
People were generally cheerful and relaxed. The office had plenty of amenities including a table tennis table, and arcade and board games. There were a lot of activities organised as well.
I had to do very little; the company managed everything and it all seemed well organised to me.
My manager was always happy to point me to training resources and gave me all the help I needed to work on the project.
They have offered me a job, which I was happy to accept! I look forward to working with them next year.
The other interns were sociable but there were only five of us (Edinburgh office).
Edinburgh is a fairly cheap city to live in.
Didn't try any.
Frisbee and football were on every week, and there were various company wide games to take part in over the summer.
