7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Busy and stressed in both places I worked, but still a good sense of community

HR side very badly managed with communication levels appalling. Does not feel like being on an internship, feels like a normal job - i see that as a plus

Opportunities were presented, but I did not take them as busy with other commitments so hard to comment

  • Flexi Time
  • Subsidised/Company Gym

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

The company is a good place to work if you know or think you would enjoy consultancy, the internship scheme has been disappointing and not a good representation of the rest of the company

9/10

Social

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

People on projects in London see more of each other, but very little for those of use based out of London

3/10

Always out of town so on expenses, zero cost of living

10/10
