PwC is in my opinion, a great place to start a fulfilling career. It provides the opportunity for varied experience - different types of projects, across sectors, interacting with decision makers at large corporations, and lots of good exposure. The global culture is very balanced, encourages diversity and inclusion, as well as respect for the individual. Top management is also very open and accessible, and we are encouraged to share our views. At PwC, there's a lot of emphasis on quality. Expectations are high, and so even the smallest tasks require a good eye for detail. Sometimes the hours may be demanding, but it's usually well worth it in the end. I think the best part are the people. PwC recruits only the best and the brightest, and it shows. Teamwork is emphasised, and at every level there are opportunities to learn and coach others. At PwC, one can readily develop good interpersonal skills and sound technical knowledge.
Lots of travel
Sometimes, long hours
A typical day at work is like a day to learn something new. You tend to work with like minds that would gear up thought process. Co-workers are seen as a family member because we share and collaborate among one another. The hardest part of the job is tight deadline to finish an engagement with an off-peak period to compensate for the peak period
Typical day at work: Full of meetings and deliverable What I have learned: The key to succeeding at PwC is knowing when and how to consult other and leverage on the knowledge network within the firm Management: The firm has sound management and a will laid out succession plan. Co-workers: Its a very profession environment full of empathetic co-workers ready to put themselves in your shoes while carrying out there work
I learnt a lot, became a full fledged IFRS expert, related well with co workers. I specialized in IFRS for the first time hence developed greatly. I worked well with Nigerians though I come from Zimbabwe, with different culture Altogether it was a worthwhile experience
Very friendly working environment, good culture
understaffed hence long working hours
A typical day starts with a visit to client office, reveiw General ledger lines,ensure they are accurately posted and in line with the required accounting standards,make selections on items or samples to test based on materiality, risk or both, request for support documents to corroborate the expense or income. For controls, obtain clients control system review it against the previous years to note any changes, inquire if and why there are changes. Perform a walk-through of the clients control system to validate that they do exist and are actively adhered. report any control lapses and make recommendations on how to mitigate them. Being an auditor, you learn to be more assertive,learn time management, work and manage different personalities. You move around different clients and locations and typically make friends and see new places, have recreational activities to bond with team members. Moving around can sometimes affect work/life balance
free lunch at client office, travelling, recreational activities
short breaks, close late
Working with different teams and people of diverse backgrounds opens one up to various ideas that would otherwise be out of reach or even taken so long to arrive at. A typical day at work sees you harnessing the team strength while pursuing individual deliverable and target. I learned how to set SMART objectives daily and for each project which helped me in my personal endeavours as well. Management makes staff matters top priority because the company views its staff as its greatest asset. All that is needed is done to ensure comfortable workplace is attained for the staff. This is in addition to an objective Performance feedback and appraisal system in which each staff is expected to appraise him/herself before the line Manager gives his/her own review. The hardest part of the job is working smart and hard to meet lofty objectives one has set for oneself. These objectives usually seem like tall orders and can only be achieved by relying on ones knowledge and application of the firm's soft tools and methodologies, resources and connecting with other staff members beyond the team who have the needed knowledge and skills. It also requires that one is widely-read (on relevant compliance documents and trending discussions on efficiency and effectiveness at work). The most enjoyable part of the job is the team-bonding, business unit meting where individual and team debacles are thrashed out and solutions proffered. The deep thinking culture engendered in individuals also makes working in PwC interesting.
Leave and year-end bonuses, flexible work hours.

The environment is welcoming, its also a training field. Away-days for staff to know themselves, happens every year. alumni's(those that have left the company) come together for games to build relationship among's ourselves. We sometimes go for secondment to other countries to work and improve ourselves.
sometimes, their are free lunches.
PwC offers an opportunity to gain international exposure by working with teams in different countries. The firm also encourages staff to work in other PwC offices outside your local country which broadens your perspective on transactions and business in general.
Working with PwC was a great experience, both in terms of the types of projects I was able to participate and the quality of the people I was surrounded with. One of my greatest achievements as a Strategy Consultant was leading the Nigerian component of a seven-country healthcare study designed to identify investment candidates for an international financial institution.
Almost every work day starts with a cup of coffee within an environment characterized with professionalism and respect for others. People at PwC are very fun to be with: always willing to assist. A typical day at work is full of knowledge sharing and client project sites experience sharing. Supervisors encourage to research and provide cutting edge solutions complex problems.
I was an intern at PwC Lagos. I enjoyed my stay there due to many factors; I organized managerial meetings, created financial statements for several organisations. the most enjoyable part of the job was AGM meetings, they were fun filled with awards to celebrate people achievement.
PwC is one of the best places to work or start a fulfilling career. A typical work day at a client sees you interacting with various levels of staff at your client from the low level staff to senior management. The global culture is very balanced and there is respect for the individual. I have learnt to work with teams and to have excellent interpersonal skills amongst other technical know how. Top management is very open and accessible. The people you work with are one of the best and brightest. Working in teams affords a daily opportunity to learn and coach others. The hardest part of the job would be when you have tight deadlines and have to work overnight but then that is easily balanced out by the various work/life balance initiatives. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you have varied experience working on different clients, projects and locations. Working hours is also flexible and helps to balance the home front.
