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

I felt comfortable at all times approaching more senior employees, and I think they too felt no reservations over engaging with interns. Overall it felt like a very flat hierarchy, which helped to make my work feel valued

8/10

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

The training was excellent, and my manager was very hands-on

8/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

This varied a lot. Towards the beginning I was reasonably busy (a fair few tasks to be getting on with, plus 1 or 2 meetings a day), but by the final few weeks I was struggling to find things to do

5/10

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

I was left to get on with my own work, but I wouldn’t say I ever had a huge amount of responsibility

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

Almost no overlap with my degree. We’ll see about beyond!

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

People were positive and friendly, though hot-desking sometimes made for a tense atmosphere when people were without a desk. Pretty quiet at times

5/10

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

Again, started very well. First week of training was excellent, and the ‘lunch-and-learns’ over the 8 weeks were great. It felt like there was no centralised structure to the work I was set however, and this sometimes made it feel like my day-to-day tasks were a bit haphazard

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

First week training was excellent, as were ‘lunch-and-learns’. Manager also very good

  • There were no perks with this Internship
