    PwC Assurance Intern

    Assurance Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsWhile I was only there for a short period of time, the teams I worked with all encompassed the same inspiring traits. They strived for a challenge that would help them grow professionally and personally. The teams empowered me to participate in the audit as if I was an actual staff member, which was an experience unlike most internships that I have previously participated in. Overall, I would say PwC offers a great atmosphere if you want to advance in the corporate world.

    ConsDepends on the engagement and your level, but hours and stress levels could be an issue. However, that is a common trait among the public accounting industry.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to start your career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe firm provides a lot of resources to ensure their staff is prepared to meet client demands. Depending on your team, there are a lot of flexibility options and arrangements to ensure work/life balance. The opportunities to move within the Firm and gain new experiences are second to none. Excellent foundation for a career.

    ConsSalary is not always commensurate with job responsibilities, however, the experience gained during your time here will hopefully translate to more money in the long term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest in your people and stay on top of topics that are important to them
