The Role

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

I thought my colleagues were very nice, the salary and hours were good but the internal schedulers did not seem to give any regard to my CV so I was placed in an area of the company that none of my strengths or interests applied to.

They were very understanding and helpful

9/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was split between two managers whose work differed in terms of loose goals and fixed tasks so was hard to balance the two. I think i did more work for one than the other.

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

The work I was given was clearly part of what my managers would have to do anyway so it felt relevant.

7/10

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

Not relevant to degree but useful for career as both company and client names have great reputation and set me out as different.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

It was fine, fairly quiet but could have been due to the summer holidays.

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

Not very, the HR seemed to be on holiday for the whole placement time and any details information about roles and events last minute. There were no intermediary events/brown bags/meetings set up as promised.

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

The first week was a good introduction into Consulting, they made a big effort to make us feel prepared.

  • Subsidised/Company Gym
  • Working from home

Only if schedulers assigned roles to strengths and interests laid out.
