"I have personally had a great experience when it comes to interacting with managers. They are all hugely supportive as well as making you feel very involved in the job they are managing. The managers I have worked with have given me a huge amount of confidence, leading me to feel that I have worked well throughout my time here."

Dublin
"I had a very mixed experience with managers. For my first job I had interaction with two managers and one director, they were all positive. I felt my work was appreciated and I received feedback from one of them, which I appreciated. I didn't have such a positive experience on my second job but it was good to experience managers with different styles."
Dublin
"My assistant managers were extremely helpful on the two projects that I worked on. They provided me with the relevant performance feedback in a timely manner and, although they were very busy at the time, they were extremely obliging."
Dublin
"Managers are ready to help with any difficulties and answer any queries. They will assign relevant tasks and give a helping hand whenever needed. If you perform well in the task provided, he or she will praise you for your performance. If you have room for improvement, he or she will provide feedback and comments on your work."

Intern, Waterford

Intern, Dublin
"The appraiser I was assigned was extremely accessible. We had regular meetings to assess my performance and ensure I was receiving a rounded education."
Intern, Dublin
"I was very happy with the managers that I worked with. Assistant managers were more likely to liaise with interns but, if they were not available, senior managers were contactable if needed."
Intern, Dublin
"Very accessible and there is a well established performance appraisal system in use within the firm. I have found that, despite the existence of a hierarchy within the firm, the overall impression is that it's quite flat in nature due to how approachable management are."
Graduate, Dublin
"This is the best part about PwC. Most managers are in their early 30s or late 20s so it's easier to interact with them and be more personable in a professional sense too. They have all the time in the world for new graduates and fully appreciate your lack of knowledge at the beginning so make great mentors and are very patient. Most started out as graduates so they have been in our shoes."
Graduate, Dublin
"Each new associate is given a buddy who they can ask any questions to help ensure that they feel comfortable in the firm. Also, everyone is assigned a counsellor who they can talk to about their career progress and learning development."
Graduate, Dublin
"I don't know about other teams, but RAS management do a fantastic job of being available. They are personable, friendly and make a genuine effort to help make your time there an enjoyable one."
Intern, Dublin
"The managers will always make time for you when you ask them to. Also, they are extremely approachable and will answer any queries you may have."
Graduate, Dublin
"I found all managers to be helpful to me as an intern. They were pleasant and approachable and never too busy to give you advice. They spoke highly of the company and really motivated you to work hard."
