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

It was difficult as you are treated as a graduate but it is very rewarding as you learn something new every day.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

At times it was very fun and at other times it was empty: such is the nature of audit.

6/10

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

It was very well organised. There is a dedicated team and the placement has been running for a long time so it is like a well oiled machine.

10/10

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

I was given lots of training. The same amount as the graduates; which was very positive considering I was only there for 7 months.

7/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Sports and Social Club
  • Financial Bonus
  • Company Parties/Events
7/10

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

I very much enjoyed the placement and I would consider a job with them, however, probably within a different department.

6/10

Social

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

I definitely made some friends for life: during the dark times of busy season there is definitely a strong sense of cameraderie.

7/10

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

London is obviously a very exensive area, but Deloitte often subsidises drinks. Accomodation is very expensive and I would reccomend packed lunch unless you want to spend 7 or 8 pounds a day.

4/10

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

Pretty good, the most favoured place of my department was K box - a karaoke bar. Fabric is just down the road. although I doubt too many company expeditions have ended up there.

7/10

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

Yeah lots, I played hockey a couple of times for Deloitte and I went to a paintballing event. I also ran the London Marathon through Deloitte which was probably the highlight of my time there.
