The only good thing about PwC is that it looks good on your resume and you will like your team (Hopefully) but that is the luck of the draw. Overall the company does not care about you as an individual and you are a cog in a machine to them and extremely replaceable.
Pros
Resume Builder
Cons
Everything Else

Too much work, way understaffed. Sometimes lack of training to associates from upper mgmt. Tone from top does not care about you. Burn and churn factory.

I was lucky enough to be placed on a good team with supportive teammates and helpful managers. Not all teams are like this. Corporate tries to take car of employees with a lot of benefits and nice/new facilities.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
long hours during busy season

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.

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

Better to work in practice offices.SDC are usually less equipped and all offshore transactional work is done. Growth only if you butter not of your skill set.

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

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

The hours someone will work at this company are unhealthy, regardless of what the recruiting literature says. You will be paid less than the average salary for position unless you devote your life to the company and become a partner. So much effort and money goes into the public relations here but, in the end you are put behind a computer to work 50-100 hour weeks.
Pros
Employment
Cons
Culture, pay, hours
