5. How well structured was the insight?

Very structured, like i said i got a wholesome view and experience of the whole company and how things work. I interacted with a lot of managers and senior managers, got to do a lot of work and networked with a lot of people. I did not only gain work experience, i also gained networking experience.

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

It was a fun atmosphere, as much as you were doing a lot of work, you still learned a lot informally and that was fun. It was not highly pressured where you felt like giving up, it was challenging enough to make you want to deliver the best.

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

The firm has invested a lot into my development. I not only got adequate training in the first few weeks, I also got relevant training that are useful in my career life. A lot of the training are very accessible at any time and anywhere which is a plus point.

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

A great extent. The insight entailed an actual delivery of a project. We were required to work in an agile manner which is generally how the company works on a day to day basis. Throughout the insight, I worked with senior manager, managers which is what a full time role entails. Hence, i think it helped me understand a lot about the general company.

10/10

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

Not a great extent but still enough to like and choose the company as a first job. The culture of the company varies as it is a massive company as a whole. To an extent, i understood that the company culture was very fast paced and agile. They value good work and are very good network of people as everyone was very helpful.

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Very valuable. As the company works with cutting edge technology, during the insight day, we were given the opportunity to work with technology that defines the current landscape everywhere now. I thought it was very useful and eye opening to realise how interesting the content was and how that might just be the career path i want to get into.

Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?


12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Yes a lot! Senior managers, managers, analyst. They were also very open to sharing their experiences and helping us figure out the whole company and work structure. They were also very helpful after the insight and helped us all network beyond the insight event. One of them even helped me land my first project role.

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

It was very fun, we had social events where it wasn't too rigid and generally spoke and networked to people in an informal manner.

10/10

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

Yes i did. everyone there was very passionate about what they do outside of project work, which also is another reason why i chose them as an employee. Whatever interest you have they usually facilitate in making it a community event or team. They are also very good on cultural and communities like LGBTQ, which is a plus point.

15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

100%, i've been going around telling my peers to join it as it is such a good experience to see if you'd actually enjoy a job you could potentially take on. As graduates, i think it is hard to certainly know what you want to do. Hence an insight like this is very useful.
