I really enjoyed my internship. The atmosphere in the office was nice, and everyone was very friendly. The work was interesting and allowed me to add value to their products.
I felt very valued by my team. The tasks that I was given reflected this - they were not trivial and allowed me to make a contribution.
My supervisor was incredibly supportive, and was more than happy to help when I asked.
Also, the initial two weeks of the placement, before being assigned a team, was dedicated to an intensive training course in C++, which was very helpful.
I always had a task to work on - most of the internship was based around one major project, with a number of smaller tasks throughout. I was nearly always busy, but the pace was good.
I felt I was given a good amount of responsibility, with tasks that reflected my level of experience, and I was mostly left to work independently on them. The main project I was given to work on required me to work directly with the code and allowed me to add value to the software.
I have developed my C++ skills, which has been incredibly helpful as a number of my final year modules are C/C++ based, as well as more general skills such communication and analytical thinking.
Very friendly, and relaxed atmosphere.
It felt well organised the majority of the time. There was a clear training plan during the first two weeks, and a number of tasks of increasing difficulty once joining the team.
Two weeks paid training before being put in a team. Following this, we were assigned a personal supervisor to provide guidance and was always available to help. A lot of time was taken to get us to a level at which we could contribute, and really get a lot out of time there.
Appealing. I have accepted a graduate position with them.
Good number of socials for the interns, including pub nights, curries and Frisbee golf.
For a city, everything is pretty cheap.
Not bad. There's something for everyone.
Decent amount of socials.
