The Role



The Role

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

I have enjoyed my everyday during this internship, especially my team, everyone was incredibly kind and helpful.


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

I receive feedbacks and thanks from each piece of work I've done, and I can feel that my inputs are really valued and will be used in the meetings.


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

My colleagues tried to give me the work from which I can learn something, even though it may cost much time to explain it to me than doing it themselves.

But there's also time when they are too busy to explain each single detail or they have an idea and would like me to materialise this idea into a page where some thinking / innovations are required.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

The work comes natually to you as long as you still have some capacities. Generally speaking, I always have something to do.


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

The responsibility given to you is as much as an analyst in the second month as long as you prove that you're reliable enough in the first month.


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

Very helpful since I study finance. This internship gave me a closer look to what I study


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Generally great in the floor in IB sense, but it varies definitely from team to team.


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

Highly well organised


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

There has constantly been plenty of trainings before and during my internship offered by the company, CCS and my team.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen

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

Summer internship is the direct channel to return as a full time analyst



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

Some social activities are organised cross-sectionally and interns always some after-works and go out on WE.


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

London is generally an expensive city and especially in the city.


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

During the weekdays, Broadgate circle is a quite lively place to grab a drink. And interns go out almost every WE to somewhere else. The social life does not really get you bored.


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

This depends quite much on your workload and willingness.
