Unclear expectations and deadlines. Everything was a fire drill. Don't expect to be supported in your role. Work-life balance is non-existent. There's room for promotional opportunities if you can survive in this environment long enough.

PwC is a great place to start your career. However, the late nights and long hours get old very fast especially on engagements you are not interested in. Generally a younger group of people and very understanding of flexibility and working from home during off seasons.

Terrible. You're essentially working minimum wage after getting a master's degree and CPA. Granted I don't think PwC as a whole is this bad however the Boston office is. It's the largest accounting firm in Boston by far but it's also the absolute worst. Go literally anywhere else.
Pros
Free food and drinks
Cons
Most conniving and disrespectful people you will ever meet

Busy seasons have become longer since COVID-19. People are generally helpful and fun. Work-life balance has decreased in the past year and it looks like it is the new normal for public accounting.

If you don't want to have a life and constantly be under stress, this is the job for you. No matter how you say no, management does not understand. It's not physically or mentally possible to assign this much work and have it all done.
Pros
It's accounting, don't know if there's any pros
Cons
No work/life balance

The team you have the pleasure of working with will push you to be the best that you can be. Combined with the variety of training offered PwC is one of the best companies to start your career with.

Fast paced environment. Long hours. Boring work as a graduate - No emphasis on learning technical tax knowledge. Lots of opportunities for flexible working.

Really enjoy working for PWC, they don't sweat a lot of the little things you think that a company would. If you need a new keyboard, order a new keyboard. whatever you need to succeed they will provide.

I really enjoyed the work environment in the Tax department at PwC. It was fairly relaxed compared to other departments. The managers were all very nice and usually quite helpful when I had questions.

Flexibility and the fact that you can control your own time helps with the workload. They are respectful towards your beliefs and or medical restrictions.

Working at PwC provides a second to none experience when it comes to learning and working among exceptionally intelligent accounting professionals; However, "work/life balance" is non-existent... when you work for a Big 4 accounting firm, work becomes your life. The hardest part of the job is the expectation that you will be available to do work until 10 pm Mon-Fri and weekends if needed. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to work with interesting clients who are some of the largest corporations in the world, and learn from the PwC professionals you work with every day.

Its a great place for new hires to learn a lot of tax issues in real practice. I really grew a lot and learn a lot from there. Also, you have to be slef- starter and take ownership of your engagement.

It is a great place to start your career. It will give a great boost to your resume having one of the big fours on it. You will work hard but it will be rewarded.
