The Role

Role Description

Working with Excel and PowerPoint on various projects that included tasks such as valuation, industry research, company analysis etc.

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

I was a summer intern within IBD and I really enjoyed working there. I really couldn't expect anything better than it was. I was mainly working with PowerPoint and Excel on various projects that included industry research, valuation etc.

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

A lot! We are interns and we are aware of that, but apart from that I felt valued and as a part of the team. That was very important for me.

10/10

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

Amazing people I had an opportunity to work for. You would expect bankers to be unapproachable, but at least the ones I worked for at BofAML were easy to approach, supportive, cared about us and always made time for the intern.

10/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Working in IBD at BofAML is quite intensive and there is always work to do.

10/10

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

Quite a lot of responsibility considering that I was an intern without experience.

10/10

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

My skills advanced more than ever in shorter amount of time than ever. Will help me in the job, in the school, in personal life.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Quite opposite from what I expected the atmosphere in IBD, the atmosphere was great even though people worked a lot.

10/10

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

Organized and structured until the last detail.

10/10

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

I commented this earlier. We received 1 week pre-start training and people were offering training during the internship on parts you did not understand very well.

10/10

  • Flexi Time
  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Company Car

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

I got an offer that I have accepted. Looking forward coming back and believe that BofAML's momentum is great going forward.

10/10

Social

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

More than I could attend.

10/10

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

City of London is as expensive as it sounds. Still 10/10, since I can't blame the bank of being where it should be. Namely, in the middle of the financial capital of the world.

10/10

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

London. Is there anything else to say?

10/10

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

Yes. Employees were good in gathering together those times that we allowed ourselves to get out from work.
