2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
My project was discussed by others, and seemed like something they were grateful for me doing
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
Mentor was great, really knowledgable and nice, very helpful! The week-long training and the start was well done too.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
I had a reasonable amount of stuff to do, sometimes I'd have to wait for people abroad to get into work until I could do something, but there's not really anything that can be done about that. Some of the processes to get approval for things took pretty long, but no major gripes.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
I had good control over my own project, and was encouraged to do what I wanted with it, which was cool. My project wasn't really something that would have had a large impact if it failed though!
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
It was my first time working in a corporate environment so that was educational. Some of the technologies used were proprietary but I think that my coding was improved by looking at how 'real' software developers approach tasks.
