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

From the onset I was treated with the respect of a permanent team member. Furthermore after becoming involved in projects and making contributions I was considered a spokesperson for different components I worked on. I worked closely with my team and my opinions and suggestions were always valued. I felt a very strong sense of community within my team, and made strong friendships.

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

I received on going support from my manager and team, and was assigned a mentor who was always available for anything I needed, technical or otherwise. I had regular one to one meetings with my manager and mentor, and received valuable feedback each step of the way.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I had ongoing work that I was tasked with and was always kept busy. My team had a very strong work ethic and this sometimes reflected in long working hours. While I was not pressured to do so myself, this was a trend in the team. Despite that, my enjoyment of my projects meant it was not a drag, and the support meant I was never overworked.

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

I was given plenty of responsibility working on a meaningful and crucial project. I was responsible for the deployment and support of my work, however was always supported by my team with this.

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

I have strongly developed my applied software engineering skills. Moreover, the opportunity to branch out of my day to day work means I have gained exposure to new areas of my subject that I have found to really enjoy; I expect this to guide my module decisions.
