The Company

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

My office was pretty quiet at some periods during the year as there is a big work from home culture, but there is also a lot of interns who are regularly in the Frimley office which was good.

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

Very good
5 /5

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

We did an IDP training course throughout the year which included 3 modules, which each took approximately 1-2 days. One of the modules around facilitation was really good and useful, but the other 2 I thought weren't as useful.

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

I would definitely consider working for Siemens again. They are a brilliant company to work for and the culture within Siemens is excellent.
