Pressure
Auditeur - Chef de Mission expérimenté (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QCAugust 28, 2014
Many interesting trainings throughout the year.
Coworkers are like a family
Pressure on the cost and many people got laid off in the past 2 years. But work load does not decrease, therefore, lots of pressure on staff and flexibility (work life balance) becomes more theoretical than practice.
Hardest part of the job is to never know what to expect, schedule can change at any moment and you need to have a flexible personal schedule to accommodate. Most enjoyable part of the job is the ownership of your work. You get a lot of independence and trust from management.

Excellent practicum for my field
Library Internship (Former Employee) –  Montreal, QuebecApril 19, 2015
This internship has allowed me to apply many of the elements I learned in Information and Library Technologies program at John Abbott College. As a graduating student, I was expected to do two internships, including this one at PwC. During this library internship, I did a variety of tasks including filing, serial reception and original cataloging for new materials. I was also asked to shelf reading and an inventory of the physical material. Identification of selected material in the online catalogue was also done since management wanted to reassign some of the collection to another department.
Pros
Private office in which you can work undisturbed
Cons
The great view was sometimes distracting
