    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • I felt that the atmosphere in my teams section was more enjoyable than the office as a whole. Whilst I feel my desk and surrounding area was fun and made the work more pleasurable, it was a different scenario sometimes in other areas of the office. However, a factor of this does involve the importance of jobs -and contracts different people are working on.

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
