"I work very closely with supervisors every day, they're always ready and waiting to answer questions. Skype is used a lot and is always there if you need to ask a quick question of anyone in the organisation."
Finance, Placement Student, Wokingham, UK
"The managers were very approachable and always had time to answer any of my queries. The feedback process was simple and effective as I had an hour-long meeting with my manager each week to regroup."
Distribution, Placement Student, Leeds
"My manager was excellent and focused well on my development. I had a weekly meeting as well as mid- and end-of-year reviews."
Supply Chain, Placement Student, Leeds
"My manager was extremely accessible. We sat close to each other in the department and she made it clear that I was able to ask her questions whenever I needed to. As I had actually graduated prior to my placement, she was very conscious of my development and checked in regularly."
Placement Student, High Wycombe
"Supervisors cannot help enough and are very friendly when giving feedback on your work. This includes both praise and suggestions for improvement."

"Johnson & Johnson has good mentors: they set you projects and help you to network with other departments/employees of the company. You have a beginning of the year meeting to set objectives and then regular follow up meetings to check your progress."

"My manager has been very supportive of my personal development. We have meetings on a monthly basis to develop and track a well-defined plan for my personal development. He also gives great advice on various areas developing a variety of hard and soft skills."
Placement Student, Maidenhead
"My manager is really committed to ensuring I get the most out of my placement year. I have weekly one-to-ones to discuss my tasks for the week ahead and if I need any support, and then monthly development reviews to discuss my strengths and opportunity points for the next month."
Placement Student, Maidenhead
"I feel that there is no hierarchical system at Johnson & Johnson. I, myself, feel I can talk to those of a more senior level, whether it be my manager, my supervisor or a member of the management committee. There is also an instant messaging service within the firm which helps speed up queries and reduce email traffic."
Placement Student, High Wycombe
"Interns are very integrated and really are part of the team. Managers are very approachable too, and really want to help you. There is a great level of feedback from management."
Placement Student, Maidenhead
"My supervisors are very accessible. I can go to my manager about anything and never worry about asking for help. My manager really helps me in terms of prioritising specific tasks."
Placement Student, Leeds


"Supervisors here are as accessible as you need, and it may not directly be your line manager but there are always people who are willing to help if you need it. Performance feedback could be more regular in my opinion, however. So far, praise and recognition can be awarded if you perform well through monetary gifts and vouchers."
Intern, High Wycombe
"People here are very accessible and approachable. I have a weekly meeting with my manager to assess my performance and progress, as well as a weekly team meeting to ensure that everyone is up-to-date and knowledgeable about what is going on in the team."
Marketing, Intern, Leeds
"My supervisor is always happy to help and always ensures that I am not over-whelmed but at the same time I am not sitting with nothing to do. We have regular weekly team meetings to discuss how I am getting on and my workload. They are all happy to help with university work that you have to complete for placements too."
Intern, Leeds
"There is always someone available of senior management who can help in the office. Also, everyone is available on the phones or via email to help with any issues you are having. We also have team meetings once a week to give feedback to each other, as well as one-on-one meetings with your line manager less frequently to catch up and reflect on progress."
Marketing, Intern, Leeds
"My supervisor is great, any help I need I receive it, and I feel comfortable addressing them with any problems or issues I have in work or outside of work. They let me know if there are any areas for improvement, and praise me when I complete a task well."
Intern, Leeds
"In terms of my experience, my supervisors are incredibly supportive and willing to help wherever possible. I feel I can approach them whenever I need support and feel completely comfortable with my progress due to self-development catch ups I have with my line manager."
Intern, Leeds
