The Role

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

During my internship I had a great time working on interesting clients as well working with an engaging team. I was exposed to a great deal of technical and complex work but my team around me made sure I was never out of my depth. Overall, I had a great time on my internship.

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

I felt extremely valued by my team around me. From day one they made sure I was included and always supported. Little things ranging from going for coffees as a team all the way up to going out for a few drinks after work. Overall I felt extremely valued by the team

10/10

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

I was given lots of support by every member of the team. From day one I engaged with all levels of supervisor. My first task was working with a Senior Manager and he took careful time to work through the task step by step to ensure I knew what I was doing.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

On a daily basis I spent was always kept relatively busy. There was always more work for me to do but I was never rushed into getting my work done and cutting corners. If I ever wanted more work or less work I just had to ask and talk to my managers.

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

I was given lots of responsibility during my time here. After being walked through what I needed to get done they let me carry on and report back on any findings I had. If had any issues I just had to ask and they would take some time out to talk me through it.

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

During my time here not only did I develop lots of technical skills but I also developed lots of soft skills. These soft skills are what I think will stick with me for life. Things like having the confidence to go and inquire about any queries I have by going and asking the asking the client.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The atmosphere was very good. The office was busy but everyone around you always had time to chat to you and speak with you. I spent lots of time talking to people and hearing about their story about how they joined PwC. I also chatted to them and found out what they did when they got out the office.

The overall internship was set up very well. We had an induction at the start for the first 3 days and then once we got to the office there was a great induction and we had an introduction to the rest of the team. I thought it was very professionally step up
