my time here was also unpaid work experience, however this gave me a better insight in to life as an accountant, especially at this company. working at this company seemed like more of a lifestyle than a job, in the sense that everyone was friendly and anyone was more than happy to talk to you if it was for advice, help or a just a small chat. the working style was very relaxed, yet everyone got on with it. the working times are very lenient, for example you could do 3 hours of work at home on a Sunday night, and then not have to come in until lunchtime on Monday. also promotions are given to employees every 1-2 years. as you gain more experience in the company you automatically gain a higher role. these company policies were very interesting to me as they seemed like very effective motivation techniques.
relaxed and productive environment
very big business and many people involved
PwC is a great company to join as a Graduate and is consistently ranked at the top of The Times 'Top 100 Graduate Employers'. Whilst the work-life balance can sometimes be poor there are plenty of opportunities to advance your career at PwC if you are willing to put the time in.
Typical day starts with reviewing the emails or getting a brief by the manager to see what tasks have been assigned. The workload can be overwhelming but in due course, I learned to adapt to the busy culture in the tax department. Co-workers are particularly helpful in accomplishing my own tasks. Despite being busy themselves, they usually have time to work out solutions with me. Hardest part of the job is probably getting the calculations right from the audited annual reports to be keyed into the tax software system. There is a lot of pages and the figures are quite small to extract. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is getting the required information needed by managers and seniors to get on with their tasks.
