8/10

I attended the PwC Business Insight week in which we were shown real experience of what it is like to work in PwC. They showed us examples of the work actual employees would complete on a day to day basis for example, submitting tax returns and creating spreadsheets

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

7/10

I have definitely improved my employability skills such as teamwork, working towards deadlines and responsibility. I am now better at working under pressure and have developed my IT skills.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

7/10

I thought the experience was good for giving me an idea of what it is like to work in a real business environment but I'm not sure if i particularly liked the work involved. I found the work quite mundane and repetitive

4. How valued do you feel by PwC?

9/10

I felt very valued by PwC as they seemed very interested in creating a positive impression and worked very hard to show me that the company is a good place to work for. I really liked the atmosphere in the building and thought the relationships seemed good

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

7/10

The programme is very organised and structured as we were set lots of tasks to complete and our time tables were given each day with new jobs to complete. However I thought on the second and third day there was too much time given to some of the tasks

10/10

Yes the salary for the business was very impressive. I really wanted the experience of working in a reputable business like PwC therefore I would have done the business insight week for free - however getting paid was a very good benefit

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

There does appear to be a lot of opportunities outside of work in PwC such as weekly cinema trips, a bbq on the friday and activity days.
