    I worked at PwC as an intern

    Pros

    Very well organised internships, with training and networking opportunities. They had a Dragon's Den type competition which I thought was a fun addition to a student's first experience working in an office.

    As for the company more generally, I had a great experience with the people working there. Everyone was nice and happy to help, positive atmosphere, and a beautiful office (Embankment).

    Cons

    The Assurance work, to me, was very dull. Perhaps this is something to be expected but it really is made to sound much more interesting during the application process.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunity for more dual schemes would be interesting for graduates, i.e. Assurance/Another part of the business.
