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.
Free food and drinks
Most conniving and disrespectful people you will ever meet
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.
It's accounting, don't know if there's any pros
No work/life balance
Pros: - Great benefits - Decent work/life balance, although this is highly dependent on what group you are in - Awesome people, although this, too, is is highly dependent on what group you are in Cons: - Very political, so keep your head down
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.
