A Dreamer, a Poet and an Ordinary Human Being!
I am a Blogger from Calcutta, the City of Joy. Currently I am working in PriceWaterhouseCooper Pvt Ltd with their Branding team. A little bit about the organization I am working with.
PwC (officially PricewaterhouseCoopers) is a global professional services firm headquartered in London, United Kingdom. It is the world's second-largest professional services firm (after Deloitte) and one of the "Big Four" accountancy firms.
It has offices in 757 cities across 154 countries and employs over 161,000 people. It had total revenues of $26.6 billion in 2010, of which $13 billion was generated by its Assurance practice, $7 billion by its Tax practice and $6 billion by its Advisory practice.
The firm was formed in 1998 by a merger between Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand. The trading name was shortened to PwC in September 2010 as part of a major rebranding exercise.
As of 2010 it was the seventh-largest privately-owned organisation in the United States.
The firm was created by the merger of two large firms, Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand in 1998. These two firms each have histories dating back to the nineteenth century.
Samuel Lowell Price, an accountant, started his practice in London in 1849. In 1865 Price went into partnership with William Hopkins Holyland and Edwin Waterhouse. Holyland left shortly after to work alone in accountancy and the firm was known from 1874 as Price, Waterhouse & Co. (The comma was dropped from the name much later.) The original partnership agreement, signed by Price, Holyland and Waterhouse could be found in Southwark Towers, one of PwC's important legacy offices (now demolished and is the new site for the Shard London Bridge) in London.
I have been blogging for more than 5 years now. A thing which started off as a hobby to display my poems and other writeup have grown into a full blown profession for me over the years.
Apart from working with PwC, I freelance as a content writer, I make customized blogger templates and I also help a few websites to leverage the power of online marketing.
Feel free to contact me if you need help with any of the above, or you can simply drop in a line. I would love to hear from you.
