3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

My Task manager and the team I worked with daily were incredible, I always felt as if they had the time of day for me and wanted me to work with them. I've had less support from the early professional scheme, an area of the business I feel didn't respect or value me beyond just being an 'Intern' something I was not used to as my in my daily role it was quite the opposite.
