• Assisted in preparing recommendations to clients for improvements in accounting and control procedures. • Gained exposure to areas of the financial statements including the balance sheet and profit and loss statements; assisted clients in preparation of their GAAP and IFRS financial statements. • As the smallest of PwC’s four assurance groups, PCS engagements often have both limited staff and budgets. This requires an increased focus on efficiency and accountability, while still delivering high quality results. • Worked directly with clients senior management in addressing technical accounting and financing issues related to merger and acquisition transactions.
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.
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.
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.
Work from home, good benefits
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)
all else, low comp
No work life balance, always anxious. Not happy with my work, I always feel pressured ans stressed. I have good colleagues but the work itself is not good for my mental, physical and emotional health. This us legit af.
Stressful work, super stressful work. No work life balance.
The people here truly care about you. The training is extensive to allow for mobility within the company in various roles. The ability to work from home is great for flexibility and they provide the necessary resources to get work done from anywhere. Great culture.
Very large company, a lot to learn
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...
Ambiente lavorativo sostanzialmente giovane
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
Great company overall but the London SDC has many issues with management and office politics. Its who you know not what you know that result in promotions.
Co workers, company as a whole, taxi vouchers and meals during overtime
Unqualified managers, popularity contest enviroment
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.
