Great Place to Intern

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at PwC as an intern for less than a year

ProsI enjoyed the opportunity to work along some of the best of the business. Everyone at the office was very friendly, and interesting. Everyone, even the partners, were very accessible and willing to mentor. I learned a lot, and PwC treated us to a Giants game and Disney World to celebrate our full time offers.

ConsI cannot think about any cons.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone, Bob Moritz is a great chairman.

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

A challenging work environment ameliorated by a professional, driven, and supportive workforce

Seasonal (Current Employee)
Stamford, CT

I have been working at PwC as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat pay and experience for seasonal and intern hires, very knowledgeable employees, very supportive upper management

The firm has high expectations for individuals and the amount of mistakes one makes in the beginning can be discouraging. The firm has a number of programs that have a steep learning curve,
