11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

I would love to work here again, it has a great culture and a great company to work for. Full time employees get lots of benefits. Interns maybe not as much but still quite good compared to other companies. It does have quite a flat stricture but there are also lots of opportunities around the business.

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Definitely!

10/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

It is London so it will be expensive, Disney is actually increasing the future interns' salaries so they will be a bit more well off. There are lots f interns within the company so socialising is very easy, you just have to know where the best places to go are.

7/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

You might have to go to other places to get a good club/bar but it's easy in London with the Underground.

8/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Again, London is an exciting place to be, whatever your interests, I'm sure there is something here for you!
