5. PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers)

top new grad employers

PwC is always looking for creative new benefits to make it attractive to young workers across the globe. This year, the company unveiled a new student-loan assistance program in the United States, which will provide employees up to $1,200 per year to put toward their student debt.

Young professionals like working at PwC because there are plenty of social support and development programs to help them charter a path. "When you're joining us out of college, you're joining a peer group of people who are all at the beginning of their careers," says Charles McLeod, PwC director of Global Sourcing and Talent. "You're learning together, you're developing commercial expertise together."

PwC also has a great reputation for training, so even those who don't stay with the company long term are competitive candidates for their next role. "The experience and relationships stay with you wherever you go," McLeod says. --B.B.
