Throughout the week, we got a real feel for the culture of Rothschild & Co by interacting with employees and learning about the company's history, but also a more robust understanding of Global Advisory. After a morning briefing, we would take part in different sessions, such as case studies, networking sessions, and webinars, and in the afternoons and evenings we would work on our projects where we had to evaluate a potential M&A deal.
The programme helped me understand Global Advisory in more depth, and I feel like by having to evaluate the potential merger of two companies, I feel more confident in my knowledge of what companies look for when conducting M&AS. I also feel that the programme enhanced my technical, networking and presentation skills.
It was highly insightful, and I now feel more confident in my next career steps. I feel like I gained a deeper insight into Rothschild & Co and have a more secure understanding of Global Advisory.
It was very friendly and one could really feel the family-owned nature of the company trickle into the company's culture. HR were highly supportive and very aware of employees' wellbeing. The general atmosphere was of being valued and heard.
I very much enjoyed the Rothschild & Co Spring Insight Programme. It was great to get to know so many people, networking with both employees and other Spring Interns, learning about the company, its culture and Global Advisory, and gaining more technical knowledge.
The more you put into it, the more you get out of it. Don't be afraid to speak up as you will be listened to and network as much as you can.
