Learned a lot from both of my rotations and enjoyed being given real responsibility. Also enjoyed the social events that were organised.
Colleagues were willing to give me real responsibility across both rotations and were more than willing to take time out of their day to explain things.
Had very little contact with my manager on my first rotation with him being away quite a lot. On my second rotation, I had good contact with my manager and desk head.
I was very busy on my first rotation, much less so during my second. However, my day fluctuated depending on what I had organised or what work was given to me.
Was given real responsibility which was a great way to learn.
I have already graduated but feel that the skills I have developed will prove to be invaluable for a career in this industry.
Atmosphere during my first rotation was very quiet, almost too quiet at times. However the atmosphere on the trading floor was fantastic, especially with the Olympics going on.
Very well organised compared to previous internships I had done. Managers had generally drawn up an agenda prior to my arrival on the rotation. Events were well organised and ran smoothly.
The first week of training was extremely useful and clearly learning and development is something the firm really places an emphasis. Also had lunch and learn sessions throughout the internship to find out about other areas of the bank.
Definitely a place I would like to work at.
The intern class was very small, and in general there was very limited socialising outside of organised events for us as a whole. Some interns are a lot more sociable than others.
London can be expensive.
Great choice of bars around the Moorgate/Bank area.
Not really a great deal.
