The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

It was definitely a great experience for me in terms of personal development. I was constantly learning and even had the opportunity to leave the office several times to shadow activities at client sites.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Colleagues were always more than happy to answer my questions and offer me guidance where required.

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

Unfortunately due to certain circumstances my assigned 'buddy' was working at the client site for 3 weeks and so was out of the office during this period. It definitely would have helped to have him around to ask stupid questions to.

5/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Whilst the balance was good, I needed to be extremely proactive and independent in finding work for myself. Others in my situation would probably have been very bored.

5/10

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

Due to the issues around chargeable hours as an intern this severely limited the work that people could give me.

4/10

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

As I am studying a maths based degree, the skills and training aren't relevant at all. But beyond and looking ahead, this will be very helpful in my career.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Generally everyone I have met have been genuinely nice people and I really like the atmosphere. Not too corporate and intense at all.

8/10

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

I was quite disappointed with how this was organised. I had people assigned for me (e.g. Career Coach and Resourcing Manager) from different offices. I wasn't really placed on a dedicated team. I was very uncertain about where I was supposed to be and what I was supposed to be doing most of the time.

3/10

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

The induction at Windsor was definitely a highlight and impressed me.

7/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Company Parties/Events
4/10

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

My division is particularly competitive so future employment prospects are quite uncertain.

5/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Yes.

7/10

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

Relatively affordable.

8/10

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

Decent.

7/10

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

I was only here for a short period so as expected not much.
