Consultancy firm PwC has topped the list of Australia’s most desirable places to work according to an annual list compiled by professional networking site LinkedIn.
This year’s top 25 (see the full list below) is dominated by the big banks and accountancy firms with no media organisations featuring. However, Accenture – owners of The Monkeys – did feature.
According to LinkedIn, the list is compiled by the data of its members and is based on a firm’s mental health, perks (such as overseas secondments), flexibility, gender parity and the ability to have fun.
