About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

The insight was very helpful, I got to understand all the divisions in IBD. This will help me a lot when choosing a job because I didn't know all of these existed before coming to Nomura.
5 /5

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

The trainings were very helpful and I can see how these can help in a career in IBD. This made me feel valued because Nomura wasn't just showing what the firm was like, but also training us to be bankers. I didn't feel very valued at my desk as I have only been here for 2 weeks so cannot help out much.
