What I learned was hard work and accomodating a lack of work life balance goes a long way. There was a commorodity at the firm between those who did not have a suitable work life balance. As well, the promotion of a lack of work life balance also added creditability with the clients.
Provided M&A guidance to clients for integrations and divestitures. A little cutthroat at times. Mentorship can be a little better given the senior folks in the office much of the time.
Compensation and hours mix can be behind competitors

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at PwC?
I also developed strong teamwork capabilities as our culture rewarded cooperation and collective efforts. Recently working on the feasibility analysis of a $50m company in the automotive sector, I efficiently collaborated with junior and senior team members to jointly produce key deliverables within an extremely tight timeline, which was greatly appreciated by the client.
It is tailored more for colleague grads to work up the rank, not for bringing external experienced resources Must become embedded with work teams and directors and they tend to favour the ones they recruited or ones they have worked with. If you come from the outside, it is hard if you did not come in with a team or group that will give you opportunities to get onto client engagements
Lack of team work
PwC is a great place do work. Demanding yes, but you will work with talented, motivated and really nice people. The company's culture is driven around high quality deliverables, high client satisfaction and a work hard play hard type of culture. Alwways working in team. Top management is easy of access and will put their hands on when needed. Hours are long and busy season is tough but it's a good learning experience. You will work on several clients and learn a lot about accounting and how to operates a business since you'll be involve early in your career with upper management from large companies. You can choose what type of client (Manufacturing, Financial, Private, etc) if the market offer that type of client. Good coaching on the job.
People you work with, learning experience and overall experience
Long hours, stressful due to deadline and sometimes not enough staff.
A day in PwC is exciting as we look forward to different challenges each day. Our typical day at work entails designing and performing testing, discussion with team, managers and client and resolving issues, if any. It is a workplace where you meet coworkers of your age, and where there is open communication for sharing and discussions. As such, working with different groups of coworkers on various engagements has widened our network as we spent considerable amount of time and having meals together.
Flexibility, people culture
PwC provides Excellent networking opportunities and awful work/life balance.
lots of young people
The works in PwC are all project based. The typical cycle starts from audit planning, followed by audit fieldwork and ended by preparation of audit report (completion). While doing the audit planning and completion, the works were done in PwC office with many discussions with the audit partner, audit manager and the client. During the audit fieldwork, I was out at the client's office with the audit team. As a senior, I was always the team in charge of the projects I was in and had to oversee the whole project and coach the junior team members. I was also given the opportunity to work in overseas projects in China and Malaysia. During the 3 years in PwC, I'm trained to be very organised and able to keep multiple projects on track at the same time. I can also work very well with many different people from different background. I've also learnt that good communication is very important in our work, especially the work that involves many different parties. The co-workers in PwC are mostly nice and fun to work with. Due to the minimal age difference, many of us can become friends easily instead of just being colleagues. The management always try to reach out to the staffs to understand the problems we faced and try to provide better working environment to us. The high turnover in the firm had caused serious problems in staffing. The frequent changes in team member and shortage in manpower always cause disruption the projects. It is always enjoyable to work in teams that everyone is working together very hard to achieve the same goals. The coaching culture in PwC also - more...
