7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
The nature of the job itself means more individual work than team work, so your on your own most of the time. But everyone, from graduates to managers, is friendly and willing to help and answer questions.
8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
Graduate team did a great job to organize everything. Good balance between work and training. Good mentor and buddy programmes. The only negative is that when your manager gets a little busy you might have to wait a long time for answers to any questions you ask.
9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
They value interns. External training for the first week and internal training throughout the internship. Senior people spend a lot of time with interns to provide guidance.
10. What were the perks on your work placement?
11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
Didn't seem to hire as many as last year. But they do hire.
12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
Fellow interns were really friendly.
13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
Company paid for accommodation. The City can be expensive but its acceptable.
14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
Didn't really experience it.
15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
As an intern, work takes up most of your time. But I did have time to meet up with friends during the week.
