Review Score

8.6/10

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

9/10

The programme was the Business Insight Week. It gave us experience of the Consulting, Tax and Assurance service lines of the firm.

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

9/10

Yes. The programme teaches you the necessary skills for future applications to PWC and their various programmes. It gave me an opportunity to develop skills in different sectors such as communication, teamwork, and building relationships etc.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

9/10

I really enjoyed the week. I would have maybe enjoyed it more if I was given some real work to complete or if I had the opportunity to visit a client site.

4. How valued do you feel by PwC?

9/10

I felt like a valuable member of the team. I was always involved in discussions with different people. I would have felt more valued if I had been trusted with real work however.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

8/10

I felt that the week was well structured. I think communication before the week could have been improved as details were changed multiple times without much notice.

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

9/10

The training provider gave us info on all sections of the firm, how to use laptops, how to apply in the future. We discussed interviews, the application process and different routes in the firm.

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

9/10

The training provider gave us info on all sections of the firm, how to use laptops, how to apply in the future. We discussed interviews, the application process and different routes in the firm.

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

7/10

The costs on the first day of geting to the induction are only covered up to £100 and most train tickets cost more than this. Other than that, the salary was very good.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

8/10

Yes for employees who work longer in the company.

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

Yes

9b. Why? *

The week was a great experience and I think a lot of students would benefit from it if they were interested in this line of work.

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

There are a lot of processes and stages involved in the recruitment process so I would say to take your time to make sure it is completed to a high standard.
