    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • 5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • 5/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • Very good overall, though speed networking could have been a bit longer - perhaps more time with fewer trainees would have been good.

  • 5/5

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • 5/5

  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • 5/5

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • Clearlandy very invested enough to remember all our names and to get a hotel room for 3 days for the non-London students. I am from a London school and did not need a room but from what I hear the welcome was given by the head of HR herself, which spoke volumes.


  • 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?
  • Very, very excited to apply.


  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • Fantastic culture, great internationalism, defeinitely a place that I could see myself working in for 20 years - highly sustainable work culture that encourages (not just tolerates) a work-life balance. I have never heard a partner urge potential applicants to think beyond the heady excitement of getting a 100-page memo on a Friday evening as a trainee, to seriously consider whether that would be sustainable for family life in the long run. I have never heard of anyone making partner while pregnant, and getting to take a whole month off each year for her children. I'm male and am extremely unlikely to get pregnant, but it spoke volumes to me about how flexible work arrangements could be, to retain talent.


  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • It touched on everything I want in a firm - internationalism, a great environment, a sustainable working pace (one trainee had only stayed past midnight twice in 6 months, and had never worked weekends - in a corporate seat).


    Everything Else

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

  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • 5/5

  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • Speed networking could have been a bit less speedy, with fewer trainees but more time with each.


  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • 5/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • Definitely. I'd recommend the firm in fact.
