The Company

Stuff planned all day everyday and we were well aware where we had to be and when.
5 /5

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Really fun - a lot of camaraderie as well as competition between teams and individuals. Welcoming, too. HR went out of their way to facilitate extra connections (e.g. ensuring I got to sit down with LGBT staff and ask them questions)

Hard work, but under no illusions now.
5 /5

Interesting to rotate amongst desks and see how each of their natural environments differ. I know where I want to end up - and where I definitely don't.

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Both in terms of deciding where you do and don't want to be, the rotations gave you a great picture.
5 /5

Everything Else

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

I had the option to be reimbursed for travel expenses but I live relatively near their Canary Wharf offices.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Special sessions setup and networking facilitated by HR for those who asked for extra.
5 /5

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

Great chance to meet staff from all areas and levels of the firm as well as other spring weekers.
5 /5

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

Particularly of interest to me was the LGBT network and HR sat me down with them to go over the stuff they did specifically - very nice.
5 /5

15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

If you want to know what sales and trading is really like - the Spring Week is the best thing for it.
