Role Description

Summer Analyst at Citi

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

I really enjoyed my internship as I got to experience a whole breadth of asset classes, networking events, work shadowing and mentorship from senior representatives.


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

extremely valued, my colleagues gave me the opportunity to work on documents which were used by clients and thereby I felt that my work was valuable.


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

I had regular weekly meetings and had day to day conversations with the team. Overall I could ask any questions that I wanted.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Very busy. That is the beauty of the summer internship, you could never get bored. There's always either a project going on, you're either meeting people from the bank or work shadowing.


5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

It was more about learning and understanding the work and the products which were complex and required research.


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

What I learnt about mostly was time management, networking and work ethic are the most important things, which need to be applied to studies.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Really exciting, especially being on a trading floor which is always an exciting environment.


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

Very organised. I knew about events run by HR weeks in advance and I would be sent reminders all the time for internal online training.


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

A lot. On a day to day basis, my line manager invested a lot of time explaining difficult concepts to me which I always appreciated.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Subsidised/Company Gym
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Healthcare/Dental

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

I am still in the process of finding out but I really do hope I get the job. Having been here for the Spring Week and then being lucky enough to convert to the summer, I would love the opportunity to be given the full time role.



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

Yes there were a lot of social events held with the interns, everyone has been lovely.


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

Not too expensive, nothing different to what you experience on a day to day in London.


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

The bars are fantastic, especially during the world cup games.


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

Yes, there were many outside the office events held with the interns.
