    training, contract specifications can be demanding and put alot of pressure to perform, training and expectations were not, in my opinion, well explained before starting.

    Pros

    Good overall package, plenty of exposure to ftse 100 clients. Variety of work. Hilton points rack up quickly. Many good people and 'humans'.

    Cons

    Hilton points rack up quickly! Forced distribution performance measurement makes life competitive despite people's better nature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in coaching and keeping people happy. We are not all motivated by money alone. Also, it should be enough to do the day job, without having to do 'above and beyond'.

    Former Intern - Audit in Manchester, England
    Former Intern - Audit in Manchester, England

    I worked at PwC as an intern

    Pros

    Friendly staff, got involved in auditing on first day, provide laptop for client work, fairly good pay (7.50/hr) for intern, got 1 day crash course on everything. Partners were down to Earth type and happy to share their experiences.

    Cons

    Staff at work place appeared not to be informed that there will be interns (they were not prepared, all seemed last minute), have to learn on the go - minimal training beforehand but this hardly prepares yoy for the real thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recommend more training, I was lucky in that the person who ended up being my supervisor was friendly and supportive. She helped clear my doubts and taught me some useful short cuts on computer.
