About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I jumped at the chance to partake in my short yet enjoyable internship at PwC as an audit intern. The experience taught me a lot about the workings of PwC as a company and gave me the opportunity to work out what it is like as an employee as I met many employees who had been working for PwC for many years

10/10

2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I was immediately made to feel welcome and this carried on through the whole internship. By the end of the internship I had made friends with many of my colleagues who made my time during the internship worth it. I was never belittled despite going in knowing very little and was always able to ask any questions I felt I had.

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

At the beginning of the internship I was given ample training and was taught to seek any help I needed as I continued. The level of training required for each task varied and so if I was unsure about a certain aspect of a task I was always guided to the company of a fellow colleague who could help me.

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

I intend to take up a graduate position with PwC when I finish my studies so doing an internship at the company has helped me massively in terms of knowing what to expect and how the systems work at the company. I believe doing this internship has been invaluable for preparing me to start working life at PwC.

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

I know the PwC has had a good history of taking on interns for short internships and year-long placements so I could not fault the internship in terms of its structure and the way it flowed. It all seemed very well organised to me and it was clear that PwC has been doing this for a long time

10/10

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

I had a lot of fun getting to know my colleagues and the atmosphere was always positive. Every member of staff I worked with in the office and beyond was open to questions and helped me with anything I was finding difficult. I am still in touch with many of them as I will be returning for my graduate position

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

I am extremely lucky that I put in a lot of effort throughout my internship and that this showed enough for me to be offered a graduate position on completion of my studies. Therefore I believe that PwC does a lot to find out about the potential of any future employees and takes the necessary steps to aid in their development

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?

Interning for PwC day in day out was invaluable to helping me to work out what it was like to work full time. I learnt about the way the company works in the UK. If given the opportunity I would love to learn how PwC works in a multinational setting, not just in the UK

Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?


12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

I don't think I would have made many friends outside of my office if I had not actively sought to do so due to the busy nature and length of the internship. However I did as much as I could to interact with employees outside of my office and as a result made quite a few friends as I was keen to do so

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

15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

I would absolutely recommend an insight such as this to a friend who was interested in audit and/or working for a large multinational professional firm in London. The internship was a great compliment to my studies and I believe it taught me things that I would never have been able to learn simply by attending university
