    Former Employee - Summer Associate in London, England

    I worked at PwC as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Well organised programme from start to finish.
    - Having a people manager helped us settle into the internship.
    - 6 weeks was a good amount of time to gain exposure to various different clients as well as colleagues at the firm.

    Cons

    - Potentially more social activities could have been planned for the interns within London to get to know each other. We found that we only really got to know the interns in our team as opposed to the interns in other departments.
