Role Description

Developing software for the company

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

I really liked the work I had to during during my 10 weeks internship. I found the application I had to create very useful for the company. Developing the application also helped me learn multiple new skills and develop the ones that I already had before the internship. Overall, work wise I really enjoyed it!

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

I found the team I have worked in a bit unprofessional, at times I felt very very uncomfortable and sometimes excluded. I during the meetings some of the people would just not take the meeting seriously, laughing and looking at each other meanwhile. It was a very tense atmosphere at times and I didn’t really feel valued.

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

I have been given a lot of support during my internship from some of my teammates as well as my manager. Anytime I had a questions or I was blocked there was someone that would help me immediately. I have been given a lot of support for shadowing people around as well as meeting new people.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

At the beginning there was not much work to do since my manager was away, but as soon as he got back I have been given my project and my schedule had become very busy, there was always something to do and always something to improve on. At the end of my internship I was still busy since I wanted to add extra features to my project.

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

I think I have been given a moderate amount of responsibility during my internship, my project was a quite big one and it was also something that was used a lot by the developers so I had to ensure that the final product was ready on time and that it met all the requirements at the end of my internship.

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

I consider that this internship has helped me a lot with learnig new skills , understanding how to work well as a team, how to communicate efficiently and how to manage my time setting my priorities and organizing my work in the most efficient way. I have learnt many new programming skills which will be a plus for me from now on.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The atmosphere in the office was usually good apart from some times when my team mates would purposely exclude other people in the team, they were making inappropriate jokes about our teammates which made me feel very uncomfortable an which I did not find professional at all. This was the only issue, apart from this coming to work was a pleasure.

5/10

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

The internship was very well organised overall, everything had to be planned before, with constant feedback a mid term review to help us improve and help us understand what we are doing well and what we are not. The recruitment team was always very helpful and they organised everything very well and nice

8/10

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

I consider that we were not giving too much training, all the training we have done was online and not very helpful. Workwise mostly I have been told that I should search up different tutorials myself without getting any training, which was understandable since my teammates were very busy. The traning was fine.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Company Parties/Events

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

Future employment prospects are very appealing, JPMORGAN gives the opportunity to grow really fast to every employee that does a good job, I consider that there is a very high chance of growing with this company if you invest yourself into it. The firm is growing very fast which also makes it appealing for future prospects.

Social

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

The social scene was fine. Not very active, no other social events apart from the ones set by the company
