What are the best and worst things about your company?
- Opportunity for international placements. - Huge range of placements so the overall programme is really tailored to your personal needs and you get to understand various parts of the business. - Competitive bonus package. - Having a large intake of graduates each year provides a great community for social events and activities.Although there are a lot of office locations throughout the UK, only some offer certain roles which aren't perfectly suited.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
I love the range of responsibilities I am given, and I feel graduates in the company are really valued. Ex-Graduates occupy well established positions with responsibility which is motivating. I also feel as though I am taken seriously, and gain great exposure as a graduate.It's easy to always want more, but I am pretty happy in the most part. One thing I would perhaps change (and this is just because I am impatient!) Would be to attend more high-level meetings and make bigger decisions quicker, but I am sure in time this will happen.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
My team are very friendly and helpful. The agile working culture is very good. Being on the graduate scheme we get exposed to so many opportunities that others in the company don't. The graduate development days that the graduate development team put on for us are very useful in helping us understand ourselves and developing ourselves to succeed at Npower. Having to balance a full time job and my CIMA studies is very tough and has been a steep learning curve.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
There are offices around the country and spending time in different locations can help make the placements more interesting to understand more about what is going on. There are loads of opportunities to do other things on top of your role. You need to be proactive to organise them (eg trips to power stations, time with metering field teams, industry talks) but managers are accommodating about you doing them.Because the scheme is so diverse I still don't really have an area I want to end up in despite having worked at the company for over 18 months.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
I like the tasks I'm asked to do as they are technical and develop the core skills that I want to develop.Can be a little detached from other teams within Digital as I'm working in Analytics, whereas everyone is much more customer-focused.
