  1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  2. I've absolutely loved my placement year with Warner Bros. I have learnt so much in relation to marketing and the industry and I've really enjoyed being able to make the most out of the experience. One of the best things about this placement is that you are doing real work (not making cups of tea for people!) and you get the opportunity to real develop the skills necessary to excel in the future. I can't recommend it enough!


  3. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  4. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to work in such a fantastic team. I was always made to feel valued and appreciated by all of the colleagues that I worked with- both within my own team and the wider business. This is very rare within big companies and it did not go un-noticed.


  5. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  6. I was given fantastic support and guidance by my manager and the wider team that I worked with. We would have weekly meetings when we were in the office to go over any big things, but also were sat next to each other and could always speak to those above me whenever I wanted/ needed support or guidance. This has continued during the lockdown period while we have all been working from home with daily morning meetings alongside the use of teams for messaging.


  7. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  8. I had a really good balance of work personally but I would say that this is mostly because I have very strong time management skills. My manager also encouraged me to take on only what I wanted to in terms of extra work so I was able to manage this to some degree. If time management is not something that you are good at I would definitely recommend trying to work on this before starting any placement as it can really affect how you feel about the work that you are doing.


  9. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  10. I was given a really good amount of responsibility during my placement, but I definitely worked to earn it! I never felt that I was out of my depth always felt confident with what I was doing.


  11. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  12. I feel like I learnt so much, not just in terms of work related skills, but also about what I want to do moving forward. Having the opportunity to experience working within this industry and this particular field has cemented in me that this is where I want to be!


  13. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  14. There was a really good balance within the office in relation to the atmosphere. It was positive and encouraged a good working energy.


  15. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  16. I found it fantastic. There is extra training that you are provided with alongside your actual placement which is really useful and there was always support available if you needed it.


  17. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  18. Warner Bros definitely invest in their interns and make them feel as though their learning and development is as important as the "regular" workforce. There are multiple mandatory courses that you partake in which are focused just on the interns, as well as wider company training that you take part in.


  19. What were the perks on your work placement?
  20. Flexi Time

    Company Parties/Events

    Working from home

    Healthcare from home


    Travel loan


  21. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  22. I am really hoping to secure a job with Warner Bros once I have completed my degree and I feel like this is a string possibility for those who show their worth during their placement year. Two of the previous years interns have just been given jobs within my team so that highlights the prospects available if you work hard!


  23. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  24. All of the interns are introduced to each other early on and facebook groups are set up so that you can message one another with any questions etc. Social nights out are always going on on Thursday's and quite often groups will get together to have lunch together etc. There is no pressure though which is great so you can be as involved as you would like to be!


  25. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  26. It's London so obviously it's not cheap, however students are pretty good at finding the bargains!


  27. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  28. The office is quite central so good access to everywhere and lots of pubs in the general vicinity of the office.


  29. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  30. There are opportunities to take part in gym sessions with others, get involved in charity work etc, there are also social events set up through different organisations within the company such as the LGBTQIA org, the BAME org and the Women of Warner org (just to name a few).


  31. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
