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

From the people whom I worked with, I felt valued throughout and even though I was only there for a short amount of time I was made to feel like part of the team.

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

I was provided with a mentor with whom we would have regular feedback sessions usually over coffee when I was back in the office.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

There was the odd day where I found myself not doing too much despite asking for work. I have heard it is generally the luck of the draw as sometimes you will be booked on very busy clients but usually the summer months tend to be quieter.

6/10

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

The responsibility given was adequate but I feel that I could have taken on more responsibility. I mentioned this at my review at the end of the internship and I think they appreciated my honesty.

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

In terms of skills I feel that I have been equipped with excellent people management skills as I was often working under a couple of managers and I had to learn how to balance their expectations to produce a successful outcome.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

I found the majority of people on my floor to be really friendly and helpful which contributed to a pleasant atmosphere.

8/10

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

I was offered my internship relatively late compared to the others and I remember how efficient HR were in ensuring that I received all documents with suitable time to reply.

9/10

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

The company provided us with a few days of intense training initially and also provided a number of speakers during our induction which I can imagine costs the company dearly. In addition, they also provided us with socials, especially the end of placement social which was fantastic.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Company Parties/Events
5/10

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

I was offered a graduate job based on my feedback from engagements. This was the icing on the cake!

8/10

Social

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

The majority of individuals were very sociable and there were plenty of opportunities to network and make new friends.

8/10

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

This was pretty much the only downside. London can be very expensive depending on where your night out takes you.

4/10

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

The nightlife was good but I didn't get to sample as much as I would have liked.

7/10

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

We received numerous emails of sporting leagues and tournaments which we could participate in such as Football and Cricket.
