How big was the office? Team strength?
Gurgaon Office is located in Gurgaon Cyber City on 4 different Floors. It has various teams and accommodates around 1000 employees.
I was in Legal Team having 16 people under a Partner.
Application procedure. Internship contact details
I mailed my CV to various partners at least a year before and then when it was accepted by one of them.
Partner recommendation is required as interns have to deal with sensitive information so getting an intern at PwC is really tough.
After Partner recommendation, HR would conduct a online test. If cleared, then a telephonic interview shall be conducted and on satisfaction the Internship shall be provided.
