Opportunities for movement within the company were limited as an intern, though the department I was working for was excellent. Limited opportunities to see the actual product you were working on. A method of securing a graduate position would be much appreciated.
Very valued, looked after and they supported my education as well as work queries.
Excellent support. Areas of improvement suggested, complimented on good work.
Peaks and troughs, on a whole this was well done.
Built up responsibility from day 1 by understanding tasks and performing at a high level. Towards the end of the placement and summer extension running tasks with guidance of colleagues.
The skill and training has developed me but not necessarily for university. More so for industry and work after graduating. I will have a much greater awareness of design principals and associated application.
Great atmosphere, team was excellent. Would have preferred it not to be in a porta-cabin but can't have everything!!
Very well set up and initiated. Regular communication with line manager and placement co-ordinator. Regular meetings with other interns, organised events etc.
I feel more investment could have been made in particular for training. The development side was great with involvement across intern and graduate groups, taking part in assisting younger school children to read etc.
I had a great experience with the company and feel like I would want to work there in the future. But, no commitment given from the company that there is any preference given to previous interns! Feels a little bit disappointing, considering the management team seemed extremely happy with my contributions!
Between interns and graduates there has been plenty going on! Enough time to do what you want, when you want to. Different experiences and lots of fun!
Average and affordable if you're careful!
Bristol has an excellent night life!
Within the intern group activities took place on a regular basis. Not many opportunities through the company themselves.
