"The training was very good and got us ready for the different departments we were going into. The main training point was learning how to use the different software systems but that came with time. The only issue was a little information overload at the start."
Entry level, Dublin
"I have developed my Excel and communication skills greatly as a result of the training. Training moves at a very fast pace and gives you a brief flavour of what you will be working on in your department."
Graduate, Dublin
"The formal training programmes, such as Excel, and the presentation skills workshops were good. The training for the audit software was a bit overwhelming and I had a case of information overload. I found that the practical on-the-job experience with this was really where I got familiar with it."
Dublin
"The training programmes were quite good. However, if I was running the programme, I would put everyone on the floor for two or three days and then bring them into training. I just felt that we didn't really know how valid the information we were learning was."

"On the internship, I was trained in soft skills such as presentations, organisation and teamwork. I was also trained in all of the systems used in the tax department."
Intern, Dublin
"I received lots of training during my first week and was assigned a 'buddy' who helped me with any general questions throughout the internship."
Intern, Dublin
"The assurance training was fantastic. It was really engaging, thorough and stimulating, and you got to network across all departments."
Graduate, Dublin
"I received intensive training on assurance practices. Skills I learned included critical thinking, attention to detail and technical knowledge."
Intern, Dublin
"I'm in a training programme revolving around hard technical skills and soft skills such as team work. I'm constantly learning."
Graduate, Dublin
"Very satisfied with the training to date and I am looking forward to beginning exam support sessions, which I have heard good feedback about. I have found that not coming from a tax background has not inconvenienced me as we have been provided with classes (given by specialists in the respective area to small groups of about 10 people) on each of the major tax areas – this has been particularly helpful."
Graduate, Dublin
"We've had three weeks of audit training. On top of that we are scheduled to receive specific industry training numerous times throughout the year."
Graduate, Dublin
"We had a three and a half week training course before we got to start working for clients. It began with three days working on double entry bookkeeping, which included an exam. We then spent the remainder of the course learning and applying audit techniques with sample clients that the firm had created. Although it is easier to learn on the job, I found it helpful when it came to learning the basics and it gave me a starting point for working for actual clients."
Dublin
"PwC's internal training on tax is excellent. I have learned about income tax and corporation tax as well as getting training on Excel."
Graduate, Dublin
"There has been so much training here that I feel really well equipped to work. They also look for our feedback on what we might like to be trained on, including technical knowledge, and will organise for that to happen. Overall I am delighted with how intensive the training is here."
