"Everything is built around the people. The culture is welcoming and helpful and everybody is willing to answer questions and help you get along. The structure and hierarchy are very clear but they don't create barriers and I felt that I could approach anybody no matter what position they held."
Intern, Dublin
"Very relaxed and people-focused while remaining professional at the same time. We have an open-plan office so everyone is on the same level with each other. You need to share some space but still have your own desk."
Graduate, Dublin
"The culture in the office is very healthy. There are plenty of opportunities to socialise, both at company events and private gatherings. The hierarchy is present but not oppressive, you can chat away to any member of the firm, including the MD, if you run into them."
Graduate, Dublin
"Teamwork was a must within my department and everyone helped each other so there was a great atmosphere. They also knew the balance between work and social life and there were various nights out throughout my internship."
Intern, Dublin
"There is definitely a work/life balance within the culture of the company as well as respect for those in leadership. The company is understanding about personal circumstances and has implemented an early finish on Fridays during the summer months and before bank holidays. Social events for staff allow them to feel appreciated too."
Intern, Dublin
"I think there is an excellent culture within the firm. I have experienced life in another Big 4 firm from a summer internship and there were many aspects that made PwC my choice of employer, including the fact that there appears to be a much flatter hierarchical structure. The social events are an excellent way of getting to know colleagues both in and outside of the department and, in the short time we have been here, we have already had the opportunity to attend the away weekend and other events, which were a great way to get us integrated into the department."
Graduate, Dublin
"It's a positive environment where everyone will help and answer your questions. Everyone understands that you are still learning and will guide you on your way."
Graduate, Dublin
"There is a really good and happy atmosphere in work. The different levels in the hierarchy constantly interact to the point where you can forget that the hierarchy exists. This makes for a more comfortable learning atmosphere. The company also has regular events both during the day and in the evenings for the new graduates and for the levels above us on a firm-wide scale. Overall, they really promote a work/life balance and want people to feel happy to be here."
Graduate, Dublin
"From my first impression, there seems to be a culture of working hard but also having fun and being relaxed in your job."
Graduate, Dublin
"The social life in PwC is second to none in my opinion – there seems to be some activity on every week. Within the office there is a strong sense that this is the best professional services firm in Ireland and we do everything we can, and more, to ensure that it stays that way."
