Overall, it was a great experience and an interesting opportunity to network with some of the graduates there. It provided a significant level of insight into the application process and some statistics on them, as well as some useful tips on being a successful applicant.

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

Clearly and productively structured with a fun trading exercise in groups. Although, would have preferred better feedback between the rounds so that we could learn from it, as it felt like we were just betting on companies at times.

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Very friendly environment with plenty of support on offer.

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

In term of personal training and development, I don't think that many skills were necessarily acquired as it was more informative than practical, plus there were too many people there.

3/10

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

It gave an insight into the company's different teams, the environment and the hierarchy system. It also provided us with the knowledge of workload and working hours.

10/10

I learnt about how integrity and responsible investing is held highly with M&G. Also, the employees described how they collaborate with colleagues, managers and customers.

Yes during lunch.

5/10

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

They were useful as I got to talk to someone for quite long. Generally there were too few employees for the number of students that there were.

5/10

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

No

5/10

15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

If they have not gone through the application process and don't know what asset management is then yes.
