The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

The internship was very enjoyable, and involved writing a total of four detailed investment theses over 8 weeks. It was very individualistic however there was always someone you could easily go ask if you needed help, or had any questions of both theoretical and practical nature.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Everyone was polite and welcoming. But as mentioned the work is very individualistic so you do not generate value and contribute to other analysts workload (hence its hard to be "valued", but this is a great thing.

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