Not disappointed with the overall job, like every job there are hiccups here and there. However, it's not a place to build a career because it takes forever to reach the top. It's a stepping stone job to another job with greater pay.
Coworker, Flexible schedule, Vacation
Health Insurance, Tons of training on top of audit work
Overall it was a great experience working at PwC as they have extremely good working culture. People were friendly and willing to teach whenever you need help or assistance. It was quite challenging during peak, as you are dealing with tight deadlines. However, it taught me that time management is very crucial and ways to manage stress. I am glad that I joined PwC as I was surrounded with great people and exposed to advanced working culture.
The very Nature of Auditing is moving from tight deadline to tight deadline with hardly any breaks. The deadlines are either set by regulators or the clients so there is no change in sight. Work roles and responsibilities evolve rapidly and you are unlikely to be given the same responsibility and sections year on year at each client. The further into audit you got the more interesting it becomes. The work hours are the reason for any hardship. From junior management positions onward, after 60 hours of overtime in a year you no longer get even a cent more consideration for working more hours but can find yourself working past midnight for months at a time. Articles in PwC, being a big 4 firm, really does make a difference and give a great benefit.
This is my first corporate job and I loved it. Friendly environment and joyful work environment help me through my tough phases. Team activities and trainings were very encouraging.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Being from different school and raise, I was not given same opportunity from my start until I left PwC. Most of my clients were out of town that local hires don’t want to do. Promotion is different because of to much politics. Work life is hard as it is normal for a CPA firm to work from a minimum of 55 hours a week and expected to be at work weekdays and weekends to have the minimum 55 hours.
Não se iludam com os comentários positivos que veem, nem por achar que é uma empresa grande e por isso boa. O equilíbrio de vida pessoal e profissional é 0, jornadas de trabalho que ultrapassam 10 horas, trabalhos em finais de semana, viagens em excesso (muitas vezes para lugares sem infraestrutura). Falam ter flexibilidade, mas se você solicitar fazer trabalho remoto, é mal visto e são raras as vezes (para a maioria dos cargos na carreira de auditoria). Há MUITO favoritismo na gerência, onde você vê muitas vezes pessoas se beneficiando em avaliações profissionais por fazerem favores pessoais (e sim, casos até que seriam impróprios num ambiente de trabalho) para seus superiores, etc. A regra lá é simples, esqueça sua vida pessoal, ganhe pouco, faça favores não profissionais pros seus chefes, e você terá a possibilidade de crescer. Para quem está dentro, basta prestar atenção nas entrelinhas dos discursos que pregam na empresa, falam que você pode muito, mas se aponta algo incorreto, é mal visto (até sendo recomendado por outros profissionais em não entrar em contato com canal de denúncias para “evitar problemas”). Se você acha isso correto e bom para você, tente sua sorte nessa empresa.
Unfortunately this place seems very different from the outside than working there. Everyone is overworked, they don't have the time or the patience to help newcomers, but they balme them for not knowing everything and give mediocre/bad reviews for the workers. The management is proud of making people work 15-18 hours a day, yet they cut all bonuses and pay raises in half at the end of the year. You feel like you do all you can and it will never be enough.
A great place to work in. Somehow there is work-life balance. Friendly environment, and strong culture. They push you to be your best and learn and explore new opportunities. Amazing place to work in.
