About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

It was a lovely time where we got to know more about the culture of the bank and the daily life of their employees.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

The senior management was constantly asking for our feedbacks so that they could provide a better experience for us.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

The employees at RBS kept making sure that all of us were taken care of and none of us was excluded. They made sure that we were in good condition - physically and mentally.


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

The insights on what their employees do and what path of career development they follow were helpful for me to plan my own career in the future.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

We were given a well-structured schedule on the first day and everything went quite smoothly despite some minor adjustments.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Everyone was nice and supportive. People have become good friends after the program and candidates have built up their own network with the employees.


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

They not only provided us insights about how the company was like, also trainings on how to pitch, how to exhibit values, etc.


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?

We were presented what was it like to be a full-time analyst by their graduates, associates and senior members. It was really helpful but it would be better if we could know what they are doing daily by their desk.


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

We were given opportunities to talk with many people in different teams. They showed us a friendly environment where people are more supportive than competitive.


10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

It was a great experience to change my stereotypes about banks, which refreshed my understandings about what they do.


Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

We were reimbursed travel and dinner expenses.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

We had the opportunities to meet with people from different levels within the department, from newly graduates to the managing director.


13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

We had several opportunities to network with their employees, for instance lunch with directors, speed dating with VPs, etc.


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

They introduced us to series of leisure and CSR activities, which were really interesting.


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

I would love to. It’s different in its own way, showing a nice and supportive environment and culture.
