PwC Employee Review
It was a good experience to keep myself busy during summer 2015
I was an intern, so I mainly helped my seniors doing a lot of extractions using excel. I had the opportunity to get exposed with a number of different industries from food manufacturing to investment corporations. My partner (another intern) was studying Economics and it was interesting working with someone from a different background. We worked really hard together and we tend to be quite strict when it comes to deadlines

As with most companies, it is really about the culture and people you work with. I was selected to the Assurance department and investigating deficiencies associated with fraud and errors for financial service companies. The nature of the work is mainly focused on client interaction, and some colleagues will have more experience in dealing with a particular clients. Thus, the pleasantness of the job comes from colleagues going out of their way to mentor and advise you when you need it. This helps newcomers adjust as well as connect with their respective mentors, besides getting the job done of course. Overall, if you are street smart (i.e. not saying things that will spook the client) then you should do fine. Anyone with an IQ higher than room temperature can do the job, but in order to excel, you need to learn fast and apply it effectively.
