I really enjoyed my week with Rothschild, it gave me a good understanding of the firm's workplace culture and the kind of work that the bank's Global Financial Advisory Division did. The work shadowing opportunities and the numerous networking opportunities put in place (tea with directors, lunch with graduates) were excellent as it enabled me to meet and talk to people from all levels of the firms and from all divisions. Presentations given by directors and associates were practical and useful in helping me understand a lot more about the industry.
HR took really good care of us interns and helped us whenever we had difficulties or encountered issues.
HR ensured that we were equipped with the necessary tools and access to data systems and people to work on our projects.
The experience has helped me make a more informed choice in the kind of bank that I would like to have a career with.
Programme was well planned, from a social for us to get to know fellow interns to networking and work shadowing opportunities. Also, presentations were interesting and helpful from M&A tactics to how to do a pitch book. We were given ample time to work on our team projects, which shows how reasonably planned the programme was.
Great insight to a boutique firm with strong european culture and values. Enjoyed it tremendously and would recommend it to future first years.
Quite a bit, there was even a presentation workshop which was helpful as we had to present our project at the end of the week.
There was work shadowing opportunities, 2x 2 hr sessions which was incredibly insightful and personal.
1 week was definitely a good amount of time to get a feel of the company.
Networking lunches, tea with directors, work shadowing opportunities plus the staff canteen was designed in a very open manner which made talking to people very easy.
Well planned, in beautiful locations and lovely food and atmosphere
Definitely, the students who attended this programme were of extremely high calibre, usually boasting more than one spring insight offer. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn and experience such a great european firm.
