"It's very good but depends on the person really. Most people I meet are very helpful and happy to engage but management is generally busy so it can be an issue reaching some people. The mentor I got was wonderful."
Graduate, Northampton
"It's a very open and friendly environment in which the door is always open."
Supply Chain, Graduate, Stoke on Trent
"There's little focus on feedback but there are reviews every quarter. How accessible your manager is depends on how lucky you are with your placements. I have been exposed to very senior figures in the business and developed important work for them."
Graduate, Derby
"I've been warmly welcomed by all levels and have built many relationships throughout the company."
Graduate, London
"A high number of senior managers put in a lot of effort with their graduates, but this can conflict with you moving around every year into different projects."
Retail, Graduate, Bedford
"The line manager I was assigned hasn't been especially active. However, I have been utilised by another within the business and she has been amazing. She's easy to talk to and I can go to her with any issues or if I require any support. No complaints from that perspective."
Graduate, Milton Keynes


"My line manager was previously my mentor. Working from a completely different site he can be a little difficult to get hold of, but generally he is accessible."
Graduate, London
"While it obviously depends on the individual, managers are by and large very open and accessible. I have had a formal mentoring relationship with a senior manager and frequently pick up informal advice from other managerial colleagues. Performance feedback is structured and good, and I am praised and recognised for work well done."
Graduate, Rugby
"I have found that managers across the company are very accessible and more than willing to help a graduate out."
Graduate, Birmingham
"I have regular reviews with my line manager which means we maintain good communication with one another. Other managers on-site are always willing to help me and give me feedback on how I've performed e.g. when I have chaired a meeting. I have a mentor from a different part of the business who is supportive and gives advice/guidance when needed."
Graduate, Daventry
"Most managers are really good. Senior managers are usually great communicators, highly competent and real "people" people! The managers I have had have always been keen to develop me in areas that I have stated I am lacking experience or skills, etc."
Graduate, Birmingham
"There is a very good management team who make encouraging mentors if you show you are seeking constructive feedback and are career-minded."
Graduate, Birmingham
