Associate - Banking Capital Market and Insurance (Former Employee), New York, NY – May 4, 2013
Pros: seminars, training courses, great networking
A typical day for me in PwC can be very exciting and fast-paced. A day starts with group meetings, which sometimes include daily news and updates on influence of new industry trends on our clients, can be quite fascinating. The whole group can therefore exchange their progress and insights on certain projects. That allows people to take a peek over – more... other projects. Then everyone will go back to their corner and pick up their work. Lunch are occationally provided to whoever attend the seminars/discussions.
The firm provides industry-focused Assurance and Tax service worldwide, while excels in teaming and comprehensive understanding on Multinational corporations' industry and business problems.
A day in busy season can be quite long and though, but people are allowed days off afterward. – less
