Nope, but spent 8 months there during my gap year
Oh right, how was it when you first joined what kind of stuff did you learn and what office were you based at?

That's amazing!
Did you have an initial bootcamp to introduce you to the technologies and languages that they use? If so, how useful did you find it?

Was in strat & consulting, rather than tech. An initial week of training and group activities, including an Excel course, which was useful if you were keen to learn it.

People were great, both in my joining group and at every other level of the business. My tips would be to 1) get involved with different areas of the business (i.e. help with a monthly newsletter for a group or go to a breakfast event with an industry group) and 2) go the extra mile to save time, spend 20-30 minutes to save you 5 minutes every day (e.g. automate an Excel spreadsheet so it requires less data input each day going forward. Make sure to then share these tips with your project team.

Do you have any personalised courses on that platform? Or are they all in the explore section?

She's actually a family friend who works at Accenture so she just advised me to wait until he got back to me. She wouldn't be able to help with the questions unfortunately- I've got loads pending too :/
