(Newser) – Accounting behemoth PricewaterhouseCoopers is roiling in controversy after a group of executives distributed a photo-heavy email ranking the top babelicious workers in the Dublin office. "We are taking this matter extremely seriously and are launching a full investigation," said a company spokesman of the email, distributed among 17 male workers. "We will take all necessary steps and actions in line with our firm's polices and procedures." The email includes headshots and information about 13 women, seeking suggestions for the "top ten" most attractive, reports Gawker.

The women, graduates of top universities, recently joined the firm and are undergoing training for executive positions. The email has since been circulated to countless firms throughout Ireland, reports the Irish Independent. PricewaterhouseCoopers is the second-largest accounting firm in the world, and employs some 2,000 workers in Ireland and 160,000 across the globe. The company's website lists "behaving professionally" and "respecting others" among expected conduct. (For the tale of another email debacle, click here.)
