I love working with a team and at PwC I get to work with many different teams on a vast array of projects. I also love that we are pushed to learn new technology. It is inspiring to work amongst so many talented people who are always finding new ways to do things!

Coaching (and whatever I can do on a daily basis to keep people as my top priority - my teams and my clients) ... No matter what jobs we have, we rely on the people around us for support and to help create a positive environment. The coaching structure we have in PwC allows me to be a formal coach or relationship leader to our staff/seniors/managers, and I also take it upon myself to be an informal mentor to others not in my formal organization. My people are my #1 reason for going to work every day.

For me, two of the most enjoyable aspects of being in public accounting are

1) the amazing people we work with, and

2) constantly working in new areas that force you to continuously learn as you work.

Hi-

I just recently started at PwC and LOVE it so far. I am a people person so when I was in college and told people that I was studying to become an accountant the reactions were typically about number crunchers and how I would handle that. After hearing that so many times, that became a fear I had coming into the profession. I thrive in team environments and when interacting with other people, so the idea of crunching numbers alone in a cubicle was not ideal for me. Thankfully, at PwC I get to continue to be a people person and have so many intelligent and interesting people to interact with! We have our engagement teams, client contacts and the offices are great at engaging team members in different meetings throughout that get us all together. I truly love the people that I get to work with and learn so much everyday. That is the best part about my job.

To me, the most enjoyable part of the job is working closely with other people and solving problems. Building relationships with others and learning every day is very important to me. Based on that, I would suggest finding a job with people you can get along with and a job that challenges you

I am in the assurance (audit) practice for a Big 4 firm, and my favorite aspects of my job are 1) working with smart, ambitious, fun individuals 2) never having two days that are the same 3) flexibility with my time that allows me to complete my work even when personal commitments arise (e.g. ability to move my hours around to accomodate a dentist appointment), and 4) the opportunity to learn new technology.

I am a tax attorney and have worked for many years in the tax field for corporations and now at PWC. I have always found that I enjoy the challenging nature of tax since it requires the ability to do financial analysis as well as to understand the law of taxation.

The three aspects of my job that I enjoy most are 1) the ability to work in a cohesive, team-centric environment; 2) the opportunity to continuously learn and grow every day; 3) the growth opportunity. In working in PwC's Assurance group, I work with a team on every engagement. Although we all have individual tasks that we need to complete to achieve our end goal, every day we have to work as a team in order to succeed. This includes coaching, knowledge sharing, collaboration, etc. I grew up my entire life playing sports, and the team mentality I experience at PwC mirrors my experience in sports. In addition, we as public accounts have the ability to learn something new every day, even from the start. I learned more in my first year at PwC than I learned in a whole year of school. Lastly, the growth opportunity is probably the most under-rated aspect of our job. No other industry provides an opportunity to grow and progress your career as quickly as public accounting. Every year we set goals for growth and we place a large focus on finishing the year in a better place than we started; it's a constant conversation.

Hi Anaya,

I enjoy all of the learning opportunities that I get at work. I learn something new every day, whether it is a piece of technical knowledge related to accounting, or a new skill related to technology and digital upskilling. There is always something else to learn about accounting which keeps the job interesting and exciting!

I've always enjoyed working with numbers and business and I have a particular interest in investments so that is why I went into Investment Tax accounting and find it enjoyable. At my job I also work with very ambitious, hardworking, and intelligent people that I am able to learn and grow with and being in this grouping of people helps push me to perform at a higher level. I enjoy solving the complex issues that arise and I get a great sense of accomplishment once I work through these complex issues successfully either individually or in a team setting.

I love the fact that I am constantly learning and helping others to do the same. Even on the challenging days, I can look back and know that I have contributed to my client and my co-workers success in their jobs. I also think the relationships I have developed with my co-workers and clients have also contributed to the joy I get from working every day.

What I love most would have to be:
1) The people. My colleagues are smart and supportive, always pushing for better while never compromising the team atmosphere.
2) The mission. I believe in what we do and it means a lot to me, personally. I find a great deal of value in that.
3) The reward. This is not just the $$. I love that my employer ensures everyone has a great work-life balance and realizes that you can't truly focus and deliver your best at work if your personal life has loose ends.

Hi Anaya,

The best part about my job is that I serve others. I work in public accounting as an Audit Manager at PwC, and ultimately my responsibility is to serve my clients well. Accountants are sometimes categorized as number crunchers that only work with spreadsheets day-in and day-out. However, while that sometimes can be true, I also spend time talking to my clients to learn and understand how their businesses operate. Being able to bring value and professional insight to my clients is very satisfying.
