Well oiled machine, looking for employees who are willing to work long hours for below market pay. A great place for those who are straight out of University, or at Director/ Partner level.

Depending on the Line of Service, client facing vs. internal, you will have different experiences here. The strongest element is the overall culture and how they up-skill all of their employees.
Pros
Room for growth, culture and employee focused
Cons
Burn out, work/life balance, management bias

Terrible. You're essentially working minimum wage after getting a master's degree and CPA. Granted I don't think PwC as a whole is this bad however the Boston office is. It's the largest accounting firm in Boston by far but it's also the absolute worst. Go literally anywhere else.
Pros
Free food and drinks
Cons
Most conniving and disrespectful people you will ever meet

Management is actual told to keep you in the position you are in although they tell you how advancement and they ability to move into different positions is fairly easy with firm knowledge and performance. Most of the decisions at a supervisory level are made from personal standpoints and relationships and not professional

Una muy buena organización, llena de muchos profesionales, pero como en todos los lugares hay personas en los puestos de mando que no saben ser líderes y tienen muy pocas habilidades de comunicación.
Pros
Prestaciones como: seguro de gastos médicos mayores, aumentos anuales de sueldo, comedor, bono de inglés, vales de despensa, bono por titulación
Cons
La prepotencia de algunos socios

Really you have to understand what the industry is trying to accomplishing and what is expected of employees based on that. You have to be prepared to take the CPA exam, otherwise continued employment and skill improvement is severely hindered.

Good WLB, but comp, management just sucks in general. Fair. Diversity is important. Fast-Paced. Innovative. Like any large global organization sometimes PwC becomes bottlenecked by its own functions (reporting, etc.) and cannot adjust quickly enough to meet market needs (from a sales perspective)
Pros
Good WLB
Cons
all else, low comp

Don't go into public accounting. The work is boring and unfulfilling. The hours are brutal and no one cares about you. It's been 7 years and I don't ever miss it.

if you work with good team, you can stick around for many years. but if you work with bad team, you probably want to get out ASAP.Deployment can be very political. if you are the favored child, you will have higher chance of getting on better projects

I was appointed as an experienced hire in IFS and the role was not as advertised and the role was not as per the job description. The IFS is entranced in its ways and is not open to new ideas, it is not open to change. The internal processes are old and not reflective of the modern approach. The leadership is more interested in internal politics and empire building than in change, efficiency and modernization. Overall the role was disappointing and unsatisfactory. The leadership very focused on the negative and very unsupportive of new ideas.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Poor leadership

PwC provides little training and little support for women. The management is awful and many talented people leave. The only enjoyable part of the work is the independence provided.
Pros
Independence
Cons
Poor Management

The project structure makes it difficult to take ownership over your career advancement. PwC core staff are usually very focused on meeting a deliverable therefore coaching or mentoring are unheard of. It feels very much luck based on times, some core staff and projects were exceptional while others were mean-spirited. Unfortunately moving projects is frowned upon. You feel very disposable since you are rolled off if you don't hit target or reminded that unless you are in QC role you are not contributing making it impossible to receive constructive feedback. High turnover and it management knows this so there is a sense of put up and shut up. Very diverse and inclusive environment but there is definite favouritism that becomes disheartening. Perfect opportunity for fresh grads trying to get into the job market but unsure of what to specialize in and want an appetizer into working for a big four consulting firm or unable to get into core. Though the ability to transfer into core is difficult i.e. after two years and subject to an endorsement and availability.
Pros
People are nice, Columbia is a cheap place to live in
Cons
Poor pay, favouritism، career ownership and advancement, luck of the project

Итак, я подавался на стажировку в PWC. Проходил их тесты и набирал высокие баллы. Имел много интервью. Процесс отбора составлял аж 2 месяца, где-то с ноября по декабрь. Впечатления очень плохие. Во-первых, Их тест это самая бесполезная вещь, которую могли бы придумать. Тесты в стиле GMAT, на скорость, но на деле это полный бред, где люди сдают и на 0 и на 100 в зависимости от удачи. Если вам повезло - вам звонят и назначают интервью. Тут начался полный бред. Мне HR выслала ссылку на покупку книг для подготовки к интервью. САЙТ С ПИРАТСКИМИ КНИГАМИ ЗА РЕАЛЬНЫЕ ДЕНЬГИ!!Дальше было порядка 3-4 интервью в течение 1.5 месяцев. Это они считают нормальным? С одной стороны задают одни и те же вопросы: как вы работали в команде, как вы исправили проблему в команде. С другой стороны - идиотские вопросы, меня хотели взять на retail, операции и стратегию, угадайте какие вопросы они задавали? Правильно, макроэкономические, о процентной ставке в банке, о бухучете (?!). Далее математические вопросы потипу умножь те числа в голове без калькулятора, посчитай сколько заправок в стране (ну еще нормально такое). В итоге, после прохождения ВСЕХ интервью, после того, как они своими "добрыми глазками" говорили хорошо хорошо, они просто стали игнорировать меня 2 недели. И только когда я им написал, оказалось, они уже наняли кого-то другого, что сказать - типичное совковое отношение, не нравишься - мы не напишем.Зарплаты "конкурентоспособные", хаха, хотите жить на 60-80 тысяч как работник(не стажер) в москве. ВЫ ведь в топовой компании их топового университета, а птушники больше вас денег зарабатывают. - more...
Pros
Хорошая разведка компании, можно увидеть как и что там работает. Если получиться попасть к конкурентам, знать как НЕ нанимать сотрудников
Cons
потерянное время, если подаете, то не только к ним. Текучка, дизорганизация, типичная постсоветская культура.

Esperienza che sconsiglio vivamente agli aspiranti avvocati (o ai giovani avvocati).Il livello professionale del management è scadente; molte ‘figure’ sono giunte in posizioni apicali soltanto per questioni di ‘anzianità di servizio’.Meritocrazia totalmente assente: va avanti chi è ‘sponsorizzato’ o chi è di bell’aspetto (..diciamo così).Ricatto morale e psicologico costante tramite il sistema della compilazione della carta lavoro: il management indica alle risorse più giovani il monte ore settimanale da caricare nella propria carta lavoro.Sulla base di questo schema il management impone sistematicamente alle risorse ‘scomode’ di indicare meno ore di quelle effettivamente lavorate, così che alla fine dell’anno fiscale l’ufficio HR valuti quelle risorse come poco performanti (con tutte le conseguenze del caso in termini di rinnovo o recesso del contrato, mancati scatti di carriera, mancato riconoscimento di bonus).Ferie: totalmente a discrezione del management; lavorare durante le festività natalizie, pasquali ed estive viene considerata la regola; qualche giorno di ‘non presenza’ invece è da considerarsi gentile concessione dei soci.Attività operative: il management delega totalmente alle risorse più giovani le attività operative per 1) carenza di know how da parte delle figure senior, 2) è prassi che i manager director etc si sentano esonerati da qualsiasi attività operativa limitandosi a review meramente formali.Colleganza: totale mancanza di collaborazione; i colleghi di team cercano costantemente di slittare i propri incarichi al collega di turno in un continuo gioco - more...
Pros
Ambiente lavorativo sostanzialmente giovane
Cons
Disorganizzazione nei processi lavorativi, mancanza di competenza da parte del management, tendenza a delegare qualsiasi attività, mancanza di collaborazione da parte dei colleghi più senior sulle attività operative

PwC offered incentive pay so compensation was good. Personnel from Manager to Senior were solid people. Unfortunately, higher management were arrogant, rude and untrustworthy. PwC will misrepresent a project’s length and your job security. PwC poorly treats contractors.
Pros
Experience is good for your resume. Some good people.
Cons
Failure of communications from upper management that could be deemed misrepresentations.
