    5/5

    4/5

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

    5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Just about right, quiet to start with and when I knew how to do the job then I was busy but I love that and felt I was really doing a good job helping out.

    5/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • A lot. Once I knew what I was doing then I could ask to be involved in pretty much anything and be left to get on with it. I could always ask questions and there was often someone in the team who had done the work last year or earlier who I could talk to.

    3/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Quick analysis and coming up with a credible opinion and evidence/sources to back them up. Also, going to work from 9 everyday has meant that I now get to the library on time back at University.

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • I enjoyed it. Some people worked long hours as there was always a lot to do but they were happy and there was time to go for lunch together. We always celebrated birthdays and met up outside of work.

    4/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • It was really clear what I had to do as I took over and handed over to a placement student. I did more than the placement before me so I asked questions to understand what I needed to do. I had a leaving conversation with my line manager and her line manager about how I found the placement which was good and helped me to see how much I had learnt.

    4/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I was always invited to training like the rest of the team and there was a lot of online learning courses to pick from. Sone of the training wasn’t so connected to my job but it was good to go along with the team.

    4/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Financial Bonus

    Working from home

    3/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Really liked working with the grads and finding out what they were working on. I liked Danone and would enjoy working there again either as a grad or later on after some time travelling next year.

    4/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • Really fun. I lived with a few other placements and we travelled to work together. We learnt a lot from each other when we first started and it was good to always have a friendly face.

    4/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • London is pricey but fun, it is a great chance to experience working just outside central London.

    2/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Good, we tended to go out in central London rather than at work except when we were with the work team.

    3/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • We went out together sometimes after work for Christmas and birthdays and things. We also did volunteering together as a team twice in the year.
