    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at PwC as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic firm atmosphere, very friendly and helpful to staff at all levels. The staff and supportive working environment really sets PwC apart from the rest.

    Cons

    At first you can feel like a fish out of water if you’re not used to working in a large company. Your team will quickly resolve this and have you feeling supported and comfortable very soon.

    Pros

    Always willing to find a place for you if you are willing to try your best for yourself

    Cons

    With so many options on things to do it can be difficult to specialise of find what you want to do

    Advice to Management

    Keep being receptive to what your people want to do and provide those opportunities for development or otherwise.


  4. "PwC Mini Summer Internship"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Very friendly. down-to-earth colleagues. I was constantly been challenged or stretched as a person so if you would like to grow as an individual, strongly recommend. It has a great atmosphere and everyone is ready and willing to help.

    Cons

    Perhaps, more awareness and opportunity such as the mini-internship so that more people know about schemes like this because I would strongly encourage everyone at University to at least do it before they leave Uni.

    Pros

    Very well rounded company. Considers every aspect face by their employees, e.g. diversity, woman at work, work life balance and making sure there are outlets to let your voice be heard.

    Cons

    Need to shake off the corporate feel of the place as new joiners from the forth coming generation gets over whelmed by the size of the firm and it's structured systems.

    Advice to Management

    Sub divisions to create more individuality within the firm but still remaining under one roof

    Pros

    Great culture, always learning and evolving, they really invest in you individually. Work with bright, smart, fun people.

    Cons

    Long hours, but against that incredibly flexible so there's a quid pro quo.

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate the flexibility vs the long hours. So much to be proud of.
