Good morning dear bloggers!
Before you get any further please note that comments in French will also be published and answered on my blog. N'hésitez donc pas à m'écrire en français!
Today I will discuss some of the reasons that got me to move from Montreal to Calgary 10 months ago:
In one sentence, what is the reason you decided to join our PwC Calgary office? I decided to join the Calgary office as the city and Alberta have been growing exponentially during the past decades and that it is full of opportunities. I wanted to be part of something special in a city I have never been before
What makes the PwC Calgary office a fun place to work (eg. Social events and committees, sports teams, etc)? The mentality of the office: “work hard, play hard!” The team works really hard at getting things done but also celebrate the same way when an achievement is completed.
How would you describe the PwC Calgary office in a two sentences? Everybody I have been working with is a great team player and high achiever. It is the place to be if you want to have opportunities to grow and learn, are ready to work hard and want to have fun!
How does the PwC provide you with the opportunity of a lifetime? I have the opportunity to be a rotational program where my learning curve is very steep for at least two years. I have the chance to be working in different competencies with different leaders from different cities across Canada. Most important to me, I have the chance to play with the best and therefore am pushed to get a little bit better everyday.
What opportunities of a lifetime have you experienced with PwC so far? I can have a job where I learn and am challenged every day but the second I leave the office, I am 45 minutes away from being in the Rockies. For me, having the chance to disconnect for a weekend from the city is priceless.
How does PwC empower you to make a difference? PwC empowers us by giving us the chance to succeed. One of the practices that is most particular in this firm is the “teach don’t tell” approach. At PwC, people always want o hear what are your thoughts on a given subject before making a decision or showing you the way. It challenges employees at every level to develop a critical thinking and makes the whole team better at the end of the day.
