2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

The regular opportunities for feedback provided a formal sense of feeling valued, but more important was the constant informal feedback which was encouraging and positive.

8/10

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

To a reasonable extent, although the office is structured so that you don't have one consistent manager, so the support and guidance comes from a variety of sources.

7/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

This is not a criticism of the firm, simply of the M&A environment over the summer. The sporadic frequency of deals means that there are some very quiet periods intermixed with busy periods.

4/10

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given a reasonable degree of autonomy over my work which made it more interesting, and as the placement progressed the responsibility I was given also increased.

8/10

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

This was the best aspect of the placement - I learned a lot about the deal process, and my commercial awareness really increased.

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

The majority was seamless, and I was able to extend it by 2 weeks which was fantastic.

8/10

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

Social

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

7/10

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

Central London = very expensive.

3/10

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