One of the best employers out there. People make the place. Amazing team and a great learning experience. The work - life balance is spot on. Even if you have to work sometimes over time all the extra hours can be transferred as free days. If the salary will be a little more competitive I would not find any fault with this company.
Hiring in 2020 has been a nightmare for many companies. Going into a pending summer intern experience with PWC, they decided to cancel the in-person experience in exchange for an entirely virtual learning and digital upskilling experience for all interns while simultaneously offering job offers to all interns. This says a lot about the firm, investing in the candidates they had already vetted and brought in during a time of so much uncertainty.
Typical workday involved working with the merger and acquisition team to provide ground-level support on various live projects for a merger of one of the largest media powerhouse firms with a net worth of $513 million and 42 subsidiaries and performing quantitative analysis and database management of the client’s financial reports.
I was helping the team to finalize the excel sheets and PowerPoint slides as an intern. Therefore, my job wasn't so complicated and there was a good atmosphere in the office. However, full-time workers were working overtime all the time, which didn't seem to be very much appealing to me.
As with most companies, it is really about the culture and people you work with. I was selected to the Assurance department and investigating deficiencies associated with fraud and errors for financial service companies. The nature of the work is mainly focused on client interaction, and some colleagues will have more experience in dealing with a particular clients. Thus, the pleasantness of the job comes from colleagues going out of their way to mentor and advise you when you need it. This helps newcomers adjust as well as connect with their respective mentors, besides getting the job done of course. Overall, if you are street smart (i.e. not saying things that will spook the client) then you should do fine. Anyone with an IQ higher than room temperature can do the job, but in order to excel, you need to learn fast and apply it effectively.
