Internal emails from the Dublin office of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) rating new female hires based on their looks went viral and made their way around the Internet.

The firm is investigating the incident and taking the matter "extremely seriously," said Ronan Murhpy, a senior partner with the accountancy firm, in an email to Irish clients and alumni.

“We are taking all of the necessary steps and actions in accordance with the firm’s policies and procedures,” PwC spokeswoman Johanna Dehaene told the Irish Times.
