2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Working in a global team, my colleagues spanned every region across the globe. For some projects, I would be working with developers in India and others, consultants in Dubai and Dublin. I felt highly valued across all the teams I worked in and received great feedback. As a placement student, I was made to feel like a part of the team through owning responsibilities and building relationships.

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

Support was readily available when needed for anything from work-related to personal support.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

In my role, my workload fluctuated. Some weeks would be quite intense whilst others were comparably more relaxed. This usually coincided with month-end reporting.

There are however a huge amount of opportunities to get involved with other wider-business projects that are communicated by the Placement team if you find yourself with some free time.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given as much responsibility as I sought out. Naturally, this turned out to be quite a lot as I constantly seek out challenges.
I was given the opportunity to lead two projects.

10/10

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Highly transferrable technical and soft skills which will undoubtedly benefit me in the future.

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

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

Whilst there are no specific routes to graduate roles in SAP, if you are considered top talent and there is headcount available in your team, there is the possibility of being retained once you graduate.

6/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Intern socials took place every week and were a really good way to relax with a great group of people.

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Being in London rent can be quite expensive, however, everyone seemed to find accommodation to suit their expenses.

6/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

Feltham is a pretty uneventful area, however, less than 30 minutes on the train and you can be in Clapham or waterloo so it's very easy to get around.

6/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Various charity days across the year.
