  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • You were made to feel very valued. For all of the tasks I was asked to complete, it was made clear how they were relevant and how the task had contributed to wider projects.


  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • It was a good balance between receiving enough guidance and support to complete the tasks but enough individual agency to carry out whatever the task or work was in the way I saw best. It was also possible to receive guidance from every level, from graduates right up to senior directors.


  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Given the team I was working in is the masters subject I'm going to take it was very, very beneficial


    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • Very well structured. I really liked the short talks from all of the departments within the company to give a brief insight into what it is they do. There was also a good balance between events and activities that went on within the summer scheme and the capacity you were given to be a part of your own teams events.

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