    5/5

  • 5/5

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Lots of socials, over 6 weeks I probably got about 12-15 free meals!

    5/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • PwC have an incredibly well laid out and prepared internship, everything is organised before you even walk through the door.

    5/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • A huge amount of resources go into the interns to develop new skills and learn about the industry. PwC want all it's employees to be hugely trained individuals and it shows.

    5/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Company Parties/Events

    5/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • I recieved a job with PwC when I finished. They told us that 95% of interns get a job offer, from what I could observe this is true. This is not the case with most other firms, for some firms offer rates are as low as 10% making it a 6 week job interview!

    5/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • PwC hires a lot of interns (about 400), so if your based in London like I was there will be a lot of social activities going on. I expect there are in other offices too but maybe to a slightly smaller extent.

    5/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • London is not particularly cheap, as anyone will tell you although as you are all in the same boat you can look for cheap places to eat together- they do exist!

    5/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • It's London- enough said.

    5/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • There was always a group of interns going somewhere which you can get involved in or team outings.

    5/5
