When Marissa met her inspiration and future mentor at a PwC event, she knew this was the place to be. She wanted to discover the path that was right for her, so she joined PwC as a new associate in tax. The program provides her with the opportunity to experience a number of tax specialty groups via our rotational Tax program, which may also include an audit rotation. She gets the best training and development opportunities through her coach, mentor and PwC's teach-don't-tell approach to learning.
