How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

they're always here and for a chat.

Excellent
Graduate, Sydney
Managers are very approachable and make excellent mentors
Graduate, Newcastle
Accessible and a somewhat alright mentor. Internal communication is average, performance feedback is given occasionally, praise and recognition are always given when someone excels.
Graduate, Canberra
The communication is usually pretty good and there is always an effort to recognise the achievements of others. You are assigned a mentor which helps immensely.
Graduate, Canberra
Accessible and great coaches/mentors
Graduate, Sydney
Depends heavily on the person and can be quite inconsistent. You may have to seek it out.

Heavily dependent on service line again. Mentors in my own team have been effective and willing to give me responsibility if shown a positive attitude and capability.
Graduate, Sydney
The managers are incredibly attentive and take great interest in your development.
Graduate, Canberra
great feedback provided. there is a real culture to help with the learning of junior members

Managers and above are not easily accessible, but when time has been booked in advance the mentoring and assistance provided is excellent.
Graduate, Adelaide
Very accessible in general, have a "coach" that is a great mentor, generally very available to communicate with & receive feedback from.

I have no issues communicating with Managers and am assigned a mentor at Manager and Partner levels.
Graduate, Adelaide
Managers are readily accessible.
Graduate, Melbourne
Managers are continually supporting you and really want to make sure you are getting the best for what you want in the future.
Graduate, Adelaide
Very hit and miss, some are great mentors and managers, others are simply promoted into higher roles without the proper abilities.
Midlevel, Sydney
Managers within my team provide on the job feedback.
Graduate, Perth
Managers sit on the same floor as everybody else and are very open to discussion. Each of the managers make excellent coaches and are more than happy to provide aid or advice when needed.
Graduate, Perth
Managers are generally accessible. My experiences of coaching/mentoring have been positive however this is not consistent. Performance feedback is encouraged via software and face-to-face. Recognition of performance outside of performance feedback also occurs in a structured manner.
Graduate, Sydney
PwC has developed very open communication streams. We have a robust mentorship program (if you are proactive) and I feel comfortable asking any superior any questions I may have.
Graduate, Brisbane
My managers are excellent. They are inclusive, great at mentoring and very supportive and approachable.
Graduate, Brisbane
There is a culture of regular, 'in the moment' feedback as well as scheduled coaching meetings.
Graduate, Brisbane
They do a wonderful job!
Graduate, Brisbane
Well established performance feedback. Encouraged to obtain feedback every 3 weeks or after an engagement. Opportunity to work with different teams almost every 2-3 months. This inevitably means you will find some managers you dislike and some who are good mentors
Graduate, Sydney
I think it really depends on the person. Most of the managers I've had have been really accessible and are willing to provide feedback. I really like the snapshot system and the performance feedback system in general. Even though it can be annoying at times, it does give you an opportunity to reflect on the work you've done and get feedback on your work.
Graduate, Sydney
Incredibly accessible. I sat on a table on level 6 with 3 partners the other day and they all asked me how I was, and asked about what I was working on. The new floor plan is amazing
