The PwC culture is very energetic. Everyone has had plenty of amazing and unique life experiences that they are willing to share and the people at PwC seem to make the most out of life.

I chose PwC as I wanted to work for one of the Big 4 accounting firms. From all the presentations I went to while at University, PwC attracted me the most from a professional and social point of view. This was due to the larger array of interesting clients PwC have and the apparent social culture. As a global firm, PwC opens the door to various international travel opportunities.

The highlight of my first year was most definitely the trainings in Auckland. They were a great chance to meet and socialise with like-minded peers who started at a similar time to me; both during and outside of work.

While I was aware of the opportunity to travel to different offices, I underestimated the amount of travel I would get to do around the region. As somebody who is originally from Wellington, my role at PwC has given me a great opportunity to see the sights of Otago and Southland. This included various day trips for stocktakes around the region, as well as a spending a week in Queenstown for a job. I have also thoroughly enjoyed playing for the PwC social touch team. This has been a great way to compete together as a team, despite wins being hard to come by!

To me, the PwC culture is very energetic. Everyone has had plenty of amazing and unique life experiences that they are willing to share and the people at PwC seem to make the most out of life.

I would encourage any potential Grad or Summer Intern to apply for PwC as soon as possible. Take any opportunity given to you to highlight what makes you a great person to be around.
