“PwC is a great company to work for, their benefits and support are very good”

Going to college is a lot of fun (although does mean studying quite a bit). Being able to get 6 weeks at a time off to study and go to college is great. Lots of social events and drinking, meet lots of like-minded graduates who later on can provide to be useful contacts, and also make great friends. Although while I worked there, I couldn’t wait to qualify and get out, I would recommend it, as having PwC on your CV opens up a lot of doors, and the long hours were worth it in the end. (If hours are a concern, join the public sector department, hours are a lot less, and personally I found the work more interesting.)

Very long hours and most people dislike the work – it can be tedious and although you work in a close knit team, you are always at the Client's, who usually consider auditors to be a pain and can very often be unfriendly, especially to junior staff. Pay is fair, not great to start off, but almost doubles in the three years you are there.

When I applied I ticked a box to say there was a personal reason I got a 2.2 instead of a 2.1, they were the only firm out of the big four to give me a chance for an interview and no questions were asked.

“Great culture, really develop their staff, but you must make the grade”

Company has offices all over the world and you can get posted to other countries. It also has a variety of different types of business under the company umbrella You can move around within the firm and really drive your own path around the company You can have flexible working pattern People you work with are bright and co-operative and there's a good working environment generally It's an ICAS/ICAEW authorised employer and so you get exam leave and financial support for studying towards the qualification.

Stress - There are peaks during the year where you are expected to work really long work hours and you are not even allowed to take any holiday in January or February Pressure – There are no second chances if you fail your exams

A holiday in January or February!

“Working at PwC is like having a small amount of your soul drained each day until you are left a barren shell of a person.”

People think its an impressive company and so long as you lie about not being an accountant in any way you can impress the uneducated in this way.

Waking up every morning knowing that you are going to achieve absolutely nothing because the end result of an audit is exactly the same no matter what. The expectation that you will put in long hours to achieve this pointless end result is therefore even more infuriating.

That people seem to get brainwashed by the constant propaganda we are bombarded with daily telling us how important what we are doing it. Most Directors are purely drones with no personalities and partners who if aren't cheating on them should be judged as also incredibly boring.
