The Organisation

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.

8/10

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.

9/10

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.
