About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I found it to be very valuable and am glad I went


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

While we had the opportunity to meet various senior staff, they were more interested in the free food at the networking event than conversing with us


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

Questions were encouraged and any and all questions were answered


4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I wouldn't say that anything I learnt helped me in my studies as it was only for 4 days and I had already studied any teaching. However, I am definitely clearer on my future career path and the options which are available through Nomura


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

Every day was well planned out and everything ran smoothly.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

The atmosphere was a mixed bag. The people were mostly friendly and I liked the young atmosphere.


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

They had a day of training, but it was not useful for anyone with even the slightest background in finance. On the other hand, people from other backgrounds probably found it useful.


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?

I would say I have a fair idea, but I would need to spend more time there to really know


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

There was a lot of emphasis on the fact that it wasnt an American bank


10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Fantastic. I got a great insight into the careers of everyone I met


Other Information

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

I was reimbursed travel expenses up to £100. They do not reimburse hotels.

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

Yes, every day there was a networking opportunity and free food!


13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

A lot of people were drawn there just for the free food and were just interested in talking at you instead of to you


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

Yes, Nomura seems to be a very social place to work


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

Yes. I have found it to be very valuable
