About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I enjoyed the placement and learnt a lot more about the role and life of a strategy consultant.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

Was valued but the team I was working with was unaware of the scheme and didn't know I was going to be working with them.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

Was able to receive a lot of guidance through a range of meetings throughout the placement and then come short formal feedback towards the end.


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

The placement certainly helped to give me guidance of how to approach future internship and work opportunities.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

Quite well structured but the interns were working on separate projects which allowed some to get a better and more useful experience than others, putting some in a harder position to demonstrate their skills. Did not help that the team was unaware that I was going to be joining them.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Was a lively and friendly atmoshphere at times but not very talkative and very work driven.

9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

Learnt a lot about the culture from meetings with employees.

Very valuable as was able to decide that it was a career path that I would like to pursue.
