What I would highlight: I have recently moved on from ICI this year. As I think about back my involvement with ICI, I can genuinely say that it was a really positive ordeal at all times. As an understudy I get faultless administration from the understudies administrations division and my guide every last time I made a solicitation.
What could be improved: Nothing bad.
