    I have been working at PwC (More than a year)

    Flexibility of work is brilliant able to work around personal commitments. Laptop given is ace and paid overtime is a bonus. Always leave early on a Friday. Offices are nice places to work. Great pay whilst still at uni!

    Expected to go onto jobs and be competent in every audit task with little supervision, can be left to own devices. Long hours at times and can be stressful to meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with teams, do not leave to own devices and then be shocked when things are not done to your standard. Make the offices more fun places and encourage people to get to know each other can be quite dull/clicky at times.
