1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


Senior support associate, I am a associate within transaction services so my day to day tasks were to crunch large volumes of data sent from the client, analyse it and come to a conclusion with visual representation of the data. My main focus was within the retail and consumer sector. I was mainly focused internally dealing with more senior staff members up to partner level.

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


I have been able to become more confident in using software tools such as excel and powerpoint and believe my overall confidence level to become more involved in group discussions on the project has benefitted.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoy what I do and enjoy the experience I get from working in London and other offices across the continent.

4. How valued do you feel by PwC?


I feel valued as an employee within my team, however I do not believe this has been reflected in remuneration as I have progressed.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


As I was one of the first people to go through there were quite a few flaws and felt that the program itself was a distraction from the overall job I was to do.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


I felt there was an adequate amount of support available. Although I had to question the relevance of some of the tasks I was to do such as increase word count after I had met the criteria

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


Minimal support from my employer was received. I don't believe there were many areas in which support could have been provided.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


I feel the basic salary is very low and does not reflect the time and effort that is put in. Yearly rises have been questioned as they were very insubstantial.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


I have found that when based in Belfast I have been able to get involved in social events outside of work but as I spend quite a lot of time travelling I am not able to benefit from all of them

9a. Would you recommend PwC to a friend? *


9b. Why? *

I believe there are more suitable positions that offer a more 9-5 working day with a better basic salary.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to PwC? *

Be yourself in the interview and focus on what makes you different.
