The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

This is massively dependent on your team and where you sit. In general everyone works very hard and is focused but approachable and friendly. There are also alot of talks and activities and food/drinks to socialise so it is not always serious.

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

Once I had arrived the work placement was very well organised and set up, but this is because they take on quite a few interns every year. However the HR team were difficult to get in touch with through my application process.

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

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

Cost of living is not too bad. Hammersmith is a little out of the city so rent can be cheaper than central but if you have friends in the city it can be expensive to commute in to see them.

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

Lots of good casual bars and pubs, would go to central london for proper night life.

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

Yes there were a few, this again can be dependent on your team! Mine did not do huge amounts outside of work.
