Great place to start of your career in consulting with the big emphasis on learning. Company is still trying to balance being a general professional services firm while trying to compete with big consulting firms (i.e., stay PwC while focusing on consulting-specific improvements)

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

overworked and underappreciated, lots of long hours during busy season. People can be very difficult to work with but outside of busy season there is great flexibility and plenty of vacation if you have the time to take it

Don't go into public accounting. The work is boring and unfulfilling. The hours are brutal and no one cares about you. It's been 7 years and I don't ever miss it.

if you work with good team, you can stick around for many years. but if you work with bad team, you probably want to get out ASAP.Deployment can be very political. if you are the favored child, you will have higher chance of getting on better projects

PwC is a good place to start your career and you will learn a lot working here. Experiences can vary greatly depending on which teams and clients you work with. It is a very high pressure environment and burn out is common. I personally don’t consider it sustainable to work here long term, especially given compensation and perks are not great compared to industry standards.

Learned a lot, helpful managers. Work life balance can be tough with travel, but mostly it depends on your client and the team. The company as a whole is great.

There will be a lot of learning, and a lot of late nights. The one thing that made me enjoy my time at PwC was that you had no choice but to progress.

Good place to start your career. High stress environment but compensated well and learned a lot. Culture is fast paced, but that is to be expected. Weight of the name seems to carry value when applying for jobs.

flexible hours, decent perks, cool team mates, but they'll kick you to the curb when it suits them. Don't buy their bulls**t about caring about people. It's the little people that suffer when times get tough.
Pros
flexible hours, nice downtown office
Cons
they'll stab you in the back at the earliest opportunity

Overall PwC is a nice place to work if you love what you do, and you are ready to put in hours day in day out. However, do not expect much in promotions especially if you do not have partners support.
Pros
Exceptional training, Travel Opportunities, Personal Growth, Collaborative Environment
Cons
Too much bureaucracy, Favouritism over merit in most cases especially promotions, Long working hours with no overtime, Bonus below minimum wage for the hours you put in, Transfer opps between different LoS reduced, Loads of experienced hires being sucked into the firm.
