The Role

Role Description

Involved in both strategy work and implementation at Clients' sites.

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

I have had an amazing time and everyone I have met: from fellow interns, my project team, manager, to my clients, have been absolutely wonderful and very supportive.

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

I feel extremely valued by my colleagues as I was given much responsibility and the work I have produced were always greatly appreciated.

10/10

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

I was given quite a lot of guidance by my manager, yet he also allows me to learn independently and input my own ideas. I feel that this has allowed me to develop my ability to work independently and it also has a very encouraging effect on me as I feel that my manager trust me to make important decisions on my own and that my ideas are genuinely being valued even as an intern to the company.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Many

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

The skills/trainings that I received have not been entirely relevant to my economics degree. However, I was able to apply my art background from A Levels (surprisingly!) and work on tasks that involve digital design which I have been previously exposed to, further developing my skill set; and also work on organising events which I also had previous experience of as the Vice President of my society.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Both my team and my clients are extremely fun to work with. Great atmosphere to work in!

10/10

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

HR is not very organised - more than half of us were put on the bench for almost a week and they have also pushed back the start dates after we have been given our offers. This messed up the plans for many of us - so despite having a great experience at Accenture, many of us are unsure whether to take up the offer and come back as we will have to wait for more than 18 months before we can start our graduate scheme.

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

We had a week of induction before our project started - however I do not feel that the week has been entirely useful for the work that I have been doing at my clients or for my personal development. However it was a great opportunity for all of us (interns) to get to know each other. Nevertheless, I feel that the bulk of the things that I have learnt through this internship was from my project instead of the training we received at the beginning.

5/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Sports and Social Club
  • Subsidised/Company Gym
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Working from home
7/10

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

It is quite appealing as from the people I've met I can see that Accenture is a great place to work in - however HR can be quite unorganised at times.

8/10

Social

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

One thing that we never lack at Accenture is social events, of which I am very grateful for!

10/10

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

Central London - rent is quite expensive - can easily go over £250 per week

8/10

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

There were always things to do after work - the trouble is more often the difficulty of getting up the next morning!

10/10

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

There were always things to do outside of work - but you always end up having too much fun socialising which leaves you no time for sleep or do anything else!
