How would you describe relations with management at your firm? Does the management keep you informed of firm-wide decisions? Are you able to contribute to these decisions?

2015

"There is great exposure to management at the bank, and I feel that they really take an interest in graduates."
Graduate, Dublin
"Although the managers are very busy, I have found find that they are very accessible."
Graduate, Dublin
"I find that managers are very supportive, appreciate your effort and recognise your work done. They are also very approachable whenever I need help or have any questions."
Graduate, Dublin
"Managers make fantastic mentors. Line managers on this programme are usually quite senior, so I think that each day is a learning experience in itself."
Graduate, London
"From my experience I have found that mentors can vary, and although there are individuals that have to push for review, there exists a good internal structure regarding performance review."
Graduate, Dublin
"I have found that managers are very approachable, and willing to help at almost any opportunity."
Graduate, Dublin
"Most managers are usually about in the office and say hello. In my opinion there isn't much of an option to ask them for feedback, you may get it once if you're lucky, as sometimes they are so busy they just don't have the time!"
Graduate, Dublin
"All of the managers I have had are very approachable and would make good mentors, communication between myself and my management has always flowed freely. Performance reviews are undertaken on a regular basis, with good praise and recognition."
Graduate, Bristol

2014

"All managers I have encountered are very accessible and willing mentors. In my experience, feedback and praise is openly given where applicable, and managers are always pushing performance which helps the learning process."
Graduate, Dublin
"I have found managers are great at communication and feedback; however, those above manager/senior manager level are generally a little less accessible to graduates."
Graduate, Dublin
"Managers are very accessible and generally make very good mentors. I have found that all of mine have been very generous with their time and thoughts when I have approached them, and even after I have left, I feel I can still email them for feedback which has been great."
Graduate, Dublin
"Managers are extremely helpful and approachable, and I have never had an issue where I couldn't talk to my manager. Even if I feel my question is small in comparison, my manager has always taken time out to answer it in the best way possible. Performance feedback is very good and detailed to allow for improvement or praise."
Graduate, Dublin
"The culture in the bank is very approachable, and asking for help is never an issue in my opinion. A certain amount of effort is needed on the graduates' part to keep in the loop though."
Graduate, Dublin
"In my role, managers are very accessible, although performance feedback could be slightly improved and perhaps a greater awareness on their behalf that this is a learning process for us graduates."
Graduate, London
"I have found that managers within the organisation are very accessible for graduates. Graduates on each of the different platforms of the programme are usually assigned a senior manager who will meet with graduates occasionally. A minor but suggested area of improvement would be giving graduates individual mentors also."
Graduate, Dublin
