Expect long hours and high stress. So much of your experience will depend on your clients and team. Auditing large public companies will give you the opportunity to learn quickly but burn out fast. Great to start your career.
Pros
Opportunities to work on interesting projects
Cons
Long hours, high stress

They work you to death and make you feel stressed. It was better in the office but the work from home atmosphere is terrible. Can't get to know any of your coworkers and just work your butt off. This job is not for me.
Pros
Growth, coworkers
Cons
hours, pay, stress levels, expectations

I've worked at PwC for almost 5 years in the assurance practice in Philly - great entry-level job to learn about auditing and accounting and great client exposure. I've enjoyed the people I've worked with and the learning opportunities. The busy seasons are rough in terms of stress and hours, but this is the best place to start a career.
Pros
Great colleagues, learning opportunities, upward mobility
Cons
Stress, work hours, pay is mediocre

During COVID-19, all work from home, which is a better work-life balance than having to commute to the office. Overall, the company isn't terrible to work for, has decent pay and benefits, but there is no sense of purpose for the work I am doing and some experienced associates will try to overwork you as a new associate. I feel like I have learned little to nothing in this position and am ready to leave the moment I get my CPA.
Pros
Work from home, good benefits

Working at PwC provides a second to none experience when it comes to learning and working among exceptionally intelligent accounting professionals; However, "work/life balance" is non-existent... when you work for a Big 4 accounting firm, work becomes your life. The hardest part of the job is the expectation that you will be available to do work until 10 pm Mon-Fri and weekends if needed. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to work with interesting clients who are some of the largest corporations in the world, and learn from the PwC professionals you work with every day.

The firm rewards you fairly for your work, but there are times where the demand is 24/7. When the firm sells more work than it can handle, they don't hire additional headcount and can thrust you into roles you don't have much experience in.

Non accounting jobs were being resourced out and moved to Florida especially IT. Have not worked there for a long time so not sure of how things are now.

PwC was the best company I've contracted for. You are made to feel a part of PwC as a contractor. Everyone was overwhelmingly supportive and seemed to go out of their way to make you feel at home. I can say it was very noticeable. Again, best company I've contracted for.

best part of the job was working with equally intelligent and driven people like myself. People were efficient at working, worked hard, and always supported one another.

Overall PwC is a decent place to work. The company promotes inclusion and equality and really does seem to "practice what it preaches" by holding events across offices to challenge it's employees to be accepting of others. The most challenging part of working for PwC is the nature of consulting work. When the deliverable goes off to the client, the consultant rarely gets to see how the work done helps improve things for the client. Employees need to work long hours and sometimes over weekends but with this requirement comes the flexibility to work from anywhere. Need to take a long weekend for an out of town event? It's no problem to work remotely.
Pros
flexibility to work remotely, diversity and inclusion
Cons
long hours, lack of work/life balance, lack of support

PwC is a great place to work if traveling is not an issue. On any given week, traveling could be between 80% to 100% to external clients in different locations depending on the projects. The mentoring environment is great, the team I worked with, as well as, my management team. I learned a lot and the team provided great support that enable us to present well in front of the customers.
Pros
Nurturing and supportive environment
Cons
A lot of travel required

My experience at PWC was different from anything that I had ever experienced in my life. It was cut throat and very competitive. It was every man and woman for themselves. The experience adversely impacted my health. There was ZERO diversity beyond the male /female dynamic.
