2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
I felt very valued, I was allowed to hold responsibility for my own work over a variety of areas, and was producing material others relied on and that was used directly within the project.
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
I was given three managers and although at times balancing them was difficult they were all fantatsic. I was given the right level of guidance when material was unclear, but I was also encouraged to take my own inititative and produce work independently.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
I had plenty to fill my time, but it was made very clear on a number of occasions that I was not expected to work out of office hours, and when I got caught up in work and stayed later than planned by choice my manger/colleagues would always be making sure I wasn't planning on staying too late and encorage me to go home.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
I felt like I was given responsibility for my own areas and that it really was valued, but at no poin did I feel unsupported it was easy to ask for help.
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
I developed better time management and also the ability to work independently and be more confident in my own decisions. I was exposed to the workings of SAS this was a fantastic opputunity and I had independent use of the tool that will definately assist my studies. I was encourgaed to work in a way that beneffited me and didn't just deliver the quickest answer. A good example was in Excel, I was asked to do some computation I knew I could do it manually as asked or try and write a macro that I didn't have much expierience with, my manager encouraged me to do the latter that was a really useful learnign expieriecne.
