The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

The guidance that was provided was good. Learned a lot on the additive manufacturing side. The project was not as challenging as I would have hoped.
2 /5

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

Everyone was super supportive and my project seemed to be valued at large.
5 /5

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

Daily standups with the wider team and with my mentor and intern team. Could talk to my manager whenever I needed something.
5 /5

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I would say that I worked a decent amount with a lot of time going to debugging hardware that I was working on. In terms of software engineering, probably less than one would expect from a swe internship.
3 /5

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

I would say that the overall idea and design were already laid out for us to the extent of some tasks already being created too. So it was more of implementing something rather than taking ownership over it. We demoed the project which was about the extent of our responsibility for it.
2 /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 I learned less than I would have hoped to on the swe side of things.

The Company

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The internship was remote, so not sure how it is normally, but everyone was very nice and supportive. We were encouraged to set time aside for non-work activities.
4 /5

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

Clear training, project allocation and road-map.
4 /5

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

There are some videos available on the training platform and a two week provided training. Ours was in some basic c++ and python.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Sports and Social Club
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Healthcare/Dental
3 /5

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

There is a clear path to go from internship to grad role in Birmingham. If you want to go to another office to do your grad scheme, this seems pretty much unheard of (you can just apply to a position that is not the grad scheme for that).
3 /5

The Culture

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

There were activities outside of work, although a lot of these were after work hours.
3 /5

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

I worked remotely, so did not relocate to Birmingham for the internship.

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

I worked remotely, so did not relocate to Birmingham for the internship.

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

There were activities outside of work, although a lot of these were after work hours.
