I felt very valued and was constantly thanked for doing work that they could have even done themselves.

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

They don't spoon-feed you the information, but give you limited guidance which allows you to find the information yourself.

7/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Ocassionally bored but asked for more work and was given it. Also ocassionally too busy but again, I let my manager's know and they eased off some of my work load.

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

Not loads of responsibility but that was my own choice really - I wanted to experience a lot so was put on 4 projects and thus couldn't be given a lot of responsibility on any of them as didn't know a lot about them in depth.

4/10

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

Not as much with my degree studies (I study maths) but the skills that you learn are invaluable for your future career.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Definitely more fun than not fun, but don't expect it to be like Uni!

7/10

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

The only fault here is that they don't tell you where your placement will be until 2 days before you're supposed to start, which doesns't give you very much time to adjust or ask any questions you might have! Otherwise it was perfectly organised.

7/10

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

They had a whole week of training for us, but some of it didn't seem that relevant/useful. Apart from this we weren't given any training for the rest of the time.

5/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Working from home
5/10

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

They offer better benefits to Grad students than to interns and 95% of the interns get offered a grad placement.

8/10

Social

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

A good social scene amongst my project team but not amongst fellow placement students - we were split up on all different projects and nothing was organised during our 8 weeks to get us together which was a shame.

5/10

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

Very expensive to live in London!!!

2/10

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

Good nightlife in London, but expensive.

7/10

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

Quite a few opportunities, but none that particulalry appealed to me - though I appreciated the attempt!
