2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
Lots of independence given in the investment process. You're view matters in the grand scheme of things and will materially affect whether the team decides to invest in a company, especially if you have covered it.
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
Staff will happily sit down with you, regardless of whether you want to talk about work, or just have an informal chat. Experienced fund managers will always take some time out of their day to chat with you.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
Quite busy - but the work was solid. Virtually non-existent grunt work. The fact that your work was actively contributing to something big, kept me going.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
A lot - and I loved it.
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
Quite a bit. Its not only the technical skills which everyone talks about. itys more about the respect and trust for others which matters so much in the work place. At the end of the day,. you need to be there for others and fit into the team. Learning the technical in an on-the-job process.
