PwC is a great company to start a career in the accounting and or financial industry field. The workplace is progressive and management is receptive to two way feedback for the most part.

It was good first job after a college degree. Benefits of working for a big company included meeting new people with different skill sets and interests.

Great company, highly recommend. All associates work hard, but have fun too. It's important to build relationships and understand the structure and dynamic of the groups. Always have the ability to move internally and continuously meet new people and build new skills.

A solid business model that unfortunately is moving too slow to adapt to the changing competitive landscape. Provides access to interesting and complex challenges but far too often lacks the will to make bold moves.

Very challenging work and tough environment, but this will depend on the group. Cultural fit is important. Relationships are 80% of the job. You receive very little on boarding.

Pros: 1. Good experience comes quickly 2. Working with many people/great connections 3. Work on big name clients 4. Lots of work events/trainings/conferences. PwC invests $ in its people. 5. Flexibility to work from home and come in earlier/later depending on the engagement team Cons: 1. Client serving, therefore always trying to please clients 2. Work under tight deadlines with the expectation of putting work deadlines above personal plans/events 3. Pressure to over-perform and work on several engagements, each with a different team, simultaneously 4. Busy season with approximately 70-85 hour work weeks

Travel was the best and worst part of the job. Team work to get the work done, co-workers. Culture was work hard, play hard, traveling to different cites each week.

PwC is often criticized for below-average compensation in the space, but compensate with flexibility where they can. Frequently able to work from home.

Large, prestigious company that offers a lot to it's employees. If you put in the effort, there is a lot of potential to move up. Be prepared however, for long work hours, lack of work/life balance and competitive work environment.

PwC is a massive company and while the people, culture, and benefits and perks are phenomenal (health/dental, 401K matching, preventative checkups, life insurance, vacation policy...I could go on..) this job (especially in advisory) is what you make of it. YOU will be fully responsible for your career and you will get as much out of it as you put in. So that means you will be expected to do amazing client work and manage your career (at the same time). Which means you likely won't be promoted on merit alone (if your heads down and doing your work all the time you aren't doing it right). So, if your client is amazing (yay!) or if your client is awful you will still be expected to really time manage the heck out of your life to do it RIGHT. That's not to say that you can't take sickkkk vacations with all the miles and hotel points that you rack up while traveling to client sites each week (you can!), but you will really need hone your time management skills to get this down to a science. To do it RIGHT, in addition to your "day job" you have to find a great manager/director/partner to latch on to and involve yourself in business development initiatives (think extracurriculars like writing white papers, or writing proposals), form or join a community to focus on specific topics e.g. "Data Analytics", Digital Finance, etc.) or create/conduct training on key topics of interest among other things. BUT, in addition to that, you also need to make sure every partner/director/HR who has ANY hand in the promotion process knows who you are and what you are looking to accomplish - more...

Busy season is pretty busy and although you are expected to work minimum 55 hours a week it is much more than that. Pretty good work life balance outside busy season but busy season more than makes up for it.

I had a positive experience at PwC, working on complex transactions a lot of team knowledge sharing. The typical work day can vary depending the phase of the project. You have to be willing to adjust to an unpredictable work life balance.

I recommend anyone to apply and if offered to take a position here. I hope one day to work there again. There was the occasional "bad apple" employee or manager but that could be the same anywhere else. Free coffee and they are usually located in a convenient spot. The work was steadily paced and even when it was busy it was manageable.
Pros
Vision, Dental, Healthcare, Salary, Hours, Lunch Break
