    What kind of laptops do they use?

    Also should we take a rucksack? Or do they provide a laptop bag?
    I would take some sort of messenger bag with you if you have one. I imagine the laptop bag they provide won't be very good/comfortable. Plus carrying a bag just looks smarter I'd say

    On the first day, you just get introduced to PwC as a company, and they invite a few people from tax, assurance and consulting to give you guys a talk. You also do these mini-activities in your tables. Also you get your laptops on the first day and the go through a few of the systems they use. Overall it is pretty chill and nothing to be nervous about. Hope that helps anyone who is a bit anxious.
    Do you sit wherever or are you assigned to seats?

    Fair enough, could meet outside but I guess the traffic could be temperamental.

    You sit wherever and you do a few icebreakers at the start with the people on your table.
