Employee Reviews

  • “PwC has a great culture and emphasizes hard work yet also a balance with your personal life. I think that as long as you communicate with your team, you are able to work around anything else that you want to do outside of work.”

  • “The firm’s ‘Be Well, Work Well’ commitment is a reflection of how much they care about their employees. Even though hours can be long and tough during busy season especially, they do everything they can to provide a work/life balance.”

  • “When it’s not busy, it’s very easy to take time off and have time to work and spend time with friends/family. The most challenging part is busy season, when having time to do other things than work is nonexistent.”

  • “They are SO supportive and encourage people to take care of themselves. But it takes a great deal of effort for staff to figure out how to balance it all, because we still have to pull our weight and work long hours. That said, I can’t imagine any other firm being so flexible and supportive. I truly mean it when I say I have the best public accounting job to exist.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “Interviews are performed both virtually and in person. Interviews are performed by a manager and partner, who collaborate and discuss the candidates based on our internal framework. If an offer is warranted, the partner will call within a few days to inform the candidate we would like to extend an offer. We’re seeking candidates who are highly driven, strong speakers, and inquisitive.”

  • “Interviews tend to be a half hour or less and limited in number. Typically, there’s only one round of back-to-back interviews for interns and staff. As for callbacks, it depends on the needs and time of year, but they are typically performed within a couple of weeks of the last interview. Ideal candidates tend to be driven to learn, willing to take on challenges, and curious enough to ask questions that drive their learning and growth. Everything else from a requirements perspective is role-dependent.”

  • “Ideal candidates are flexible and willing to commit to the requirements of the job. They are kind, driven, ready to learn, accepting of change, and eager to take on challenges and better themselves. Good communication skills are a must.”

  • “PwC is looking for people who are, just like the firm, ‘purpose-led’ and ‘values-driven.’ If you haven't already, I would encourage you to write out your own purpose and vision statements for life, and see how they align with PwC’s. PwC wants its interns to: 1) Be curious and try new things, 2) Have an open mind and ask questions, 3) Problem solve with effective tools and techniques, 4) Produce high quality work, 5) Keep up-to-date on technical developments in their industry, 6) Handle and analyze data responsibly, 7) Communicate confidently, clearly, and concisely verbally and in writing, 8) Embrace different viewpoints, adopt a global and inclusive mindset, and welcome opposing viewpoints, and 9) Uphold the firm’s code of ethics. The firm also seeks people who have demonstrated problem-solving skills, the ability to prioritize and manage multiple tasks at once, interact with various levels of leadership verbally and in writing, and self-motivation to take responsibility for personal growth and development. The five attributes of PwC’s professional framework are: whole leadership, business acumen, technical and digital, global and inclusive, and relationships.”
