PwC has an open atmosphere. With the right motivation and ambition, you can find a matching place here to start or continue your career. I started as a trainee at FDD, the largest department within PwC Deals. I learned a lot in those first months alone.

When I interned at another company, I met my old mentor. He turned out to be working at PwC and told me about Deals. I got excited when I heard that PwC was innovating with regard to valuations and automation. I also find it interesting to work at the interface of M&A and Big Data Analyses.
