Satisfactory
Experienced Assurance Associate (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAApril 15, 2014
Typical day involves primarily testing balances, follow ups on emails, walkthroughs/inquiries with client, and some administrative tasks. Once you learn the standard testing, you focus your efforts eventually on applying industry-specific guidelines and how internal controls impact account activity. Management is basically a hierarchy, very well-planned – more... according to client budget and experience levels. Overall, people are great to work with as the firm focuses on hiring team players, individuals you can deal with during long hours. The hardest part of the job for some may be the hours; for others, the mundane tasks. The most enjoyable part are the perks, the people, and the network. – less

Learn to be a jack of all trades, but a master of not many.
MANAGER (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 8, 2014
Pros: exposure
Cons: many
Can get pigeon-holed very quickly, and you MUST stroke the egos of Directors/Managing Directors/Partners to get ahead. Most are completely self-centered.

Work/Life balance is touted, but not practiced.

Large Firm with Losts of Opportunities
Client Team Lead (Current Employee), Dallas, TXApril 5, 2014
The firm has multiple lines of service, including Tax.

Busy season involves taking 8 to 9 clients through a set of processes on a compressed schedule. The most challenging part of the job is keeping track of where each client is in the process.

The most enjoyable part of my job I would have to say is the people I work with.

At PwC, I started out writing code to integrate their Oil & Gas accounting system with SAP financials, and running system support. I then become a system SME, and ran a testing initiative to test releases of any ancillary system that fed data to the accounting platform. I then moved to client engagement. I completed the PwC integrated programming school – more... (4 months of training in writing C and building databases and back-end processing jobs) – less

A Great Place to Work
Service Delivery & Print Services Manager (Former Employee), Florham Park, NJMarch 25, 2014
From my perspective in internal firm services, PwC is a great place to be. Management was very concerned with developing people, challenging staff with unique work opportunities when possible, etc. Compensation was fair compared to the market but the perks came from the way employees are treated with respect and are able to achieve work/life balance.

I – more... loved working with a group that had a strong sense of community involvement as well. Contributing to charities in the community wasn't just allowed, it was actively promoted. – less
