7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
The atmosphere at my office was good. We hosted development days, talks and site events which were really interesting!
8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
The placement was very well organised. I started by training and learning about the role and I progressively was given more responsibility as my knowledge increased.
9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
GSK really invested in my training and personal development. Both the company and my manager really encouraged me to take part in development days to improve my soft skills and learn about other sides of the company.
10. What were the perks on your work placement?
Staff Sales/Staff Shop
Working from home
11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
Future employment prospects are looking really good at the moment. They help you to apply internally to the graduate scheme. Previous IP students have also been hired back.
12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
The students were constantly organising socials and my colleagues did also occasionally organise socials.
13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
The exact area of the office was not very good for socialising. However it is really near to central London which means socialising has been really good.
14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
Again, the exact area of my office did not have a very good nightlife but London which is really near by certainly does.
15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
There are opportunities to get involved in a lot of volunteering as well as sports.
