(based on 6 ratings in 2016)
"A huge company with a lot of places for students, that offers a lot."
Pros: 
  • There are a lot of training options on offer.
  • A wide range of sport and social activities are provided to help employees socialise.
  • Interns are given the same level of responsibility as other employees.
Cons: 
  • Remuneration on offer is reasonable but may not go very far in high-cost areas.
  • Interns do not have as much say in where they are assigned as they would like.
  • The company is so large that it can be difficult to see the impact your work will have.
