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.
5 /5

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.

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.
2 /5

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
5 /5

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.
5 /5

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.
5 /5

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.
4 /5

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

Good especially considering the nature of the role and the location of all brand ambassadors.
4 /5

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.
4 /5

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.
