The Role

Role Description

A day at the Deloitte offices where I was involved in group challenges, listened to presentations and got to experience what Deloitte has to offer an undergraduate student.

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I enjoyed the insight day, however not as much as some of the other firms. I got the impression that we were just being rushed through the day without really much care being shown towards us.

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

The other students were very supportive whilst performing the group tasks.

7/10

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

The facilitators stated the objectives clearly but it seemed that they were under a lot of pressure to get through the tasks and as a result they weren't fully able to answer our questions in enough detail.

8/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

The tasks kept us busy but we still had regular breaks to refresh ourselves.

4/10

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

None unfortunately as this was just a one day experience. I can imagine much more responsibility is given on the internship.

3/10

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

I learnt more about Deloitte and the different service lines which played a part in helping me choose which service line I wanted my internship to be in.

The atmosphere was good, although we did not get to see too much of it.

8/10

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

The day was structured very well and I was always aware of what tasks would be coming up and when.

8/10

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

The company invested by paying for the resources and the facilitators for the insight day.

7/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

1/10

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

We were told that taking part in the Insight day does put you in good stead in terms of getting a place on the internship.

8/10

Social

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

The social scene was not as great as in some of the other insights that I have taken part in.

3/10

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

The offices were in Central London and the surrounding area does not look cheap for living and socialising.

3/10

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

London has a great night scene but we did not get to experience it!

8/10

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

No activities due to the insight day being solely one day.
