Our vision is our global strategy that provides a framework for what we want to achieve and the choices we will make to meet the needs of our changing world.

Our values—act with integrity, make a difference, care, work together, reimagine the possible—define how we do it. They are the expectations we have for working with our clients and each other.

Our purpose and values are the foundation of our success. Although we come from different backgrounds and cultures across the globe, our values and behaviors are what we have in common and help us deliver on our purpose.

At PwC, our focus is having a firm culture where our people can sustain peak performance, while feeling they have a full and well-rounded life.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC.


    Applied on campus via resume drop. Got an on campus interview which consisted of a 30-min behavioral and a 45-60 min case that you could prepare for at home. Case questions were given on the day of the interview and were specific to the type of Advisory role you applied to.
