    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • Brand Ambassador Role: I enjoyed aspects of the role, organising events and careers fairs was very rewarding however some of the more mundane tasks which did not have a great reception were less good.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • I felt valued by both OCP and Factset people who I worked with. I was told my work was good and the intention of the work was made clear. Good relationships were made between the brand ambassadors and the HR people.


  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • I received a decent amount of support. There could have been improvements which were raised at the end of the role which was a valuable experience. Events were supported and guidance was available whenever needed.


  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • It has been good experience for my CV and graduate job search. Experience from talking to people and organising events has been invaluable for interviews.


    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • There was a very loose structure to the brand ambassador role, flexible hours which were required and events were made clear when they would be.


  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • Very good, at both times at the Factset office there was a very welcoming atmosphere.


  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • There was a initial training day, however it was not in depth as the role did not require extensive training.


  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • Very much as we were advertising the full time roles. One of the brand ambassadors is starting there full time. We knew a large amount about the role and the firm which is beneficial


  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • It was very good for this as it is one of the USPs of the Factset graduate role.


  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • It was good through both relationships made throughout the experience and through insight into the industry and the role of FactSet. I almost applied for the graduate role myself.


    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • £8 an hour. Seems very fair. Expenses for events and travel to the office covered.

  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • Yes, at the insight day and careers fairs a number of graduates were available to talk to.


  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • Good especially considering the nature of the role and the location of all brand ambassadors.


  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • N/A for this role. There was a social aspect to the initial meeting at the factset office which was good.


  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • Yes, depending on the degree course and experience. It was invaluable for me, however during my final year it has been difficult with the increased workloads.
