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

PwC is a wonderful place to start your career, young and energized. The more busy seasons you work, the more stressed and burnt out you become. The unfortunate part is that some people have fantastic experiences and work-life balance while others are unlucky and are stuck in a place where it feels like busy season all year round. In the end, if you can put in the work and time early on, do it. Get the experience and leave.
Pros
Free phone, "unlimited" sick days, flexible schedule
Cons
Work-life balance does not exist, you're just another number

Work life balance is tough but not impossible. It is a fast paced and stressful environment. A lot of hours will be required to be put in during busy season.

You meet a lot of very smart, very talented people while working here. Hours are long and there is a decent amount of stress, but it pays off in the long run.

If you want to work with decent people with knowledge. This is never a good place. The culture is poor. Most of the people in this firm spend most of their time playing politics and attacking each other. The don't respect junior staff, and have strong hint of racial discrimination.

Use your resources within PwC to help you gain knowledge and get ahead in your career. The people are great but sometimes your managers are not so flexible and does not know how to advocate for his/her team. Your experience depends on you and your team.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Busy season hours are intense

Typical Big 4 experience -- a lot of work with little work/life balance. The experience varies according to the industry/team you are in. If you are lucky to be part of a good team with good management, you will succeed if you put in the time and effort. In my experience, Risk Assurance has more personable people than the people working in Core Assurance, even with the higher turnover ratio. In addition, bad management can really kill your career, no matter how hard you may work. It all boils down to luck.

I worked at Strategy& in PwC - a high reward, high stress environment, with a very competitive culture though good learning opportunities. Management in the financial services practice were often just stereotypical finance guys - highly competent jerks. While the prestige and perks are nice, the culture and lack of fulfillment were dealbreakers.

The best Big Four firm in my opinion in terms of quality of work and integrity of the firm. First couple busy seasons are hard, but you get used to it. Comp is better elsewhere when working in NYC.
