Sometimes I would be extremely busy and had to work weekends, and then I would have 1 or 2 days off as compensation for working the weekend or have a very relaxed working day, but on the whole I feel that my work load has been very well balanced.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Sometimes there would be a lot of tension when running up to a deadline, but the majority of the time, the atmosphere was great. My team and I were constantly joking and laughing on one of my projects which definitly made me feel more comfortable and welcomed into the group!

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

I think there could be some improvements, for example sometimes an invitation would be sent out only a few days before an event and I have only been able to attend a handful of events due to this. However in general terms, the internship was set up very well and was easy to follow.

9/10

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

They have provided me with the chance of gaining a L3 NVQ qualification in management and L3 Technical certificate and also a L2 in excel and so the opportunities that come about to improve training and personal developmentare definitely there and very worth taking!

I would very much like the opportunity to return to Accenture after gaining my degree - lets see what happens!!!

Social

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

For me, during my first project, I was the youngest worker by far and so the social scene was very limited and due to the location of my project I didnt see many other interns. On my second project however, I have been able to see many interns and the social side has been very good!

7/10

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

I have had the opportunity to stay living at home during my internship and so my cost of living has been very low meaning socialising has been brilliant when I have had the chance!

9/10

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

Sometimes in my area, nightlife meant working through the night to get a deployment finished - bit of a nightmare but we were rewarded with takeaways to keepour spirits up. Other times when work was not as frantic, the nightlife was great!

7/10

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

There were a few opportunities sent our way, but with the nature of the projects I was on and with them both being out of town, it was difficult to attend any activities as I have been all ove the country over the last few months!
