Role Description

Audit Internship

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

My time at PwC has been thoroughly enjoyable - only reason to not deserve a score of 10 is that I did have to do several very long commutes that were very tiring (however were a good learning experience of a realistic working week).

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

My colleagues were hugely helpful and were more than happy to integrate me into the team and provide useful advice - they were always patient and approachable!

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

I did get support from management and always felt that I had someone to go to with questions. It was very helpful to have a buddy who I could go to with more informal questions.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Depended very much on the job that I was on - in some jobs I was busy all the time and in others there was much more ebb and flow to the work stream.

7/10

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I felt like I was given much responsibility - this was very much appreciated and made me feel valued and part of the team.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I genuinely feel like I have learnt a huge amount in 6 weeks - I have had to get to grips with PwC software and huge amount of new information. I believe the skills and confidence that I take away from the internship will set me up for a strong start to my future career.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Everyone was very welcoming - it was very helpful to have a buddy as a friendly face in the earlier stages. Being able to attend the Ascot with the office was a big bonus - we felt very welcome to the team.

8/10

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

My only comment would be that there did seem to be a lack of organisation in the early stages. In particular welcoming us to the office on the first day, it did seem that we were not expected!

6/10

9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

The firm did invest much in us in terms of our 3 day residential training and the sheer volume of time spent with clients, supervisors and colleagues on the jobs that we were on. I felt i learnt much and definitely developed.

8/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Working from home

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

I would love to work with PwC - I have had a very positive experience here.

10/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Within our group we were very social - having a strong social support among my fellow interns made the process hugely more enjoyable.

10/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Reading was not too expensive.

5/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

We enjoyed drinks after work.

6/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Not a huge amount - but I believe this was due to the time of year and the length of time we were here.
