    4/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

    5/5

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I have decided to pursue another career path so the practical skills I learnt won't be completely relevant. However the communication skills, insight into PwC and career advice will assist me in my degree and beyond.

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • There were occasions where we weren't following a programme and weren't sure where we were supposed to be. Further the first day we were sent across the country for a 2 hour session which wasn't too well coordinated. However otherwise it was very well structured.

    3/5

  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • PwC has a great culture, it is a very welcoming firm full of genuinely nice people. The atmosphere was second to none.

    5/5

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • There was an element of personal training when we were given auditing work to do although this was pretty casual. I hope there is long term investment in candidates such as myself as I hope to reapply again in the future.

    4/5

  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

    5/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • I was paid for expenses for travel to cities outside of my office's region (MK) to meet clients or attend induction events. I was also paid for the internship.


  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • There were a few opportunities, although this was limited to the people we were assigned to given that everyone was going about their working days.

    4/5

  • There were not really any social event or networking opportunities.

    2/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

    4/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • Yes, it is great for those who aren't sure what they want to do with their degree and want to explore a professional services firm.
