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

Because the group was only composed of 40 people, it was a chance to all know each other and have a friendly and safe atmosphere allowing us to ask question without fear. We all had the opportunity to ask question or to have some time to network with the representatives which was very nice.
