I swear the levels of entitlement are insane. Paying for ur student loan at all is a huge benefit that you won’t see in most companies. If you want your loans paid off, I think you can go to a government job and they have some program like that. Otherwise be grateful. You’re probably one of the same ppl that was like “PWC only gave us 1,000 for no reason. It should be more”. Or “only $25 a month for be well work well. So cheap”. Don’t spoil it for the rest of us that are grateful

In a new initiative KPMG leadership has decided to replace bonuses with pats on the back and kind words.

@PwC 6 I mean do you want PwC to tell parents and kids the obvious? Go to an in state school? Apply for scholarships? Save/work to pay for school?

They're not really wrong. Anyone who spends 50k/year on tuition to become an accountant is doing it wrong. It's not necessary. I've known plenty of people do 2 years of community college, transfer to state school, and get a big 4 job, all for less than 50k in total.

I am very grateful that they have this benefit. I just wanted to see what other companies around were offering. No need to get so offended. Yeah I said it was peanuts because in comparison to my student loans it is peanuts but definitely helps out a ton. No need to get offended

For PwC the student loan pay down benefit stops once you are promoted to manager- so you will have the benefit for up to 6 yrs depending on when you start (3 as associate, 3 as senior)

like

It stops at manager or six years, whichever comes fist at Pwc. And to second the entitlement, commentary, when Pwc started this I believe something like 3% of companies were offering student loan pay down at all.

Reason is the way it was it was written. Calling it peanuts would cause people to believe that u are saying the amount is not enough.

like

If you have six figures of student loan debt, yes in comparison it's peanuts

like

If PwC really wanted to build trust in society we would find a way to produce accountants without six figure debt loads. The only reason that college costs so much is because of the student loan marketplace allows middle income families to afford 50k tuition which is then the entrance fee to careers like ours.

Going to community college, working through school, attending satellite universities, doing on-line coursework are all cheaper alternatives that are also completely inconsistent with the highest probability of getting into PA. If we provided cheaper alternatives to get in the door we would upset the current high cost model.
