    Pros

    make money and get experience over summer.

     Interesting work. lots of opportunities to shadow in different areas/visit different cities and offices if you have a good relationship with your manager and can request it in a polite way.

    got a grad job

    got a good taste of corporate life

    Cons

    the person training me in what i was doing didn't really care much to train me, more just to get me through the day without messing up. I think I was unlucky though as no one else had this problem.

  3. Audit life- not for the faint hearted

    Pros

    Depending on which department you get into, your exposure to diversity will vary. That will also mean your peak periods and intensity or scope/ level of autonomy will differ accordingly. Therefore, it is important to be clear in what you hope to see. Be sure about that and PwC has much to offer you in terms of growth and industry exposure.

    Great environment and people to work with!

    Cons

    Long hours being audit but nothing unexpected or out of the ordinary.
    Being a service industry, it sometimes cna be quite a challending juggle managing expectations and relationships.- be it managers or clients.

    Advice to Management

    Kudos for effort put into reaching out to grassroots and encourage open communication by explaining reasoning behind actions and direction taken.

    Areas of improvement could possibly be to increase focus on support for personal and professional development.
