    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • Very interesting topic (PHM on electronic boards) but the team was not very well organized. If you don't like to work in autonomy, it is not made for you.

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • a lot of responsibilities and trust

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • when I asked, I obtained some support otherwise I had to find the solution by myself what did not bother me as I like working autonomously. It is sometimes complicated but very challenging.

    3/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Actually, as I was very autonomous, I decided how busy I wanted to be. I was working from 9 to 5:30 with a break of one hour at noon. So, it was not so long but during the day I was working hard.

    4/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • A lot because I accepted it.

    4/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I think a lot because I learned some technical stuff and I discovered new algorithms; I learned a lot about drilling and mostly I learned how to interact with colleagues in a multicultural context.

    4/5

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Some colleagues were very welcoming and friendly while some others were not.

    3/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • As I said previously, not so well organized but it was because the manager of the team changed not a long time ago.

    3/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I had a lot of trainings but all linked to security and not really linked to the skills I wanted to developed

    2/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Flexi Time

    International Travel

    4/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • not really appealing. Because of the covid-19 crisis, they are drastically reducing the number of employees so it will be complicated to be hired... how ever I got a proposition for next year

    2/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • Yes, I made friend with 2 colleagues.

    4/5

  • Fun but very expensive (Cambridge is known to be very expensive)

    2/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Cambridge is a young but small city. So, it was ok.

    3/5

  • with the university and meetup, a lot !
