Good for starting out and learning
Experienced Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 21, 2017
I learned a lot at this job, it was a fast paced environment. However, the work life balance was poor during the busy season. Ninety hour weeks and no weekends for weeks straight were the expectation.

Values input
Advisory Manager (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOApril 21, 2017
In the short time I have been here, PwC management has valued my input both on projects and personnel. They seem to take employees' input to heart when it comes to all aspects of the job.

Dynamic work environment w/ some challenges.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 20, 2017
Overall, management is supportive of its employees. PwC offers great benefits and good pay for client service teams. It's challenging for internal support teams to advance, so the focus should be on skills acquisition. They do offer flexibility depending on the team with which you are aligned, however, having that flexibility means there is an expectation of availability when needed (there is a joke that PwC stands for People Working Constantly). The hardest part of the job was dealing with really difficult personalities/people that are unwilling to compromise. The most enjoyable part was learning so much in a dynamic work environment while also meeting life long friends.
Pros
Flexibility, good benefits, great learning opportunities.
Cons
Working on vacation, ability to take accrued vacation, difficult personalities, lower pay for internal teams.

Typical Big 4 Accounting
PwC Associate (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAApril 19, 2017
PWC is a typical public accounting firm that turns and burns employees on a regular basis. Great place to start your career but long-term not for everyone. Glad that I have them on my resume.

Exceptionally well managed consulting firm.
Managing Director (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 19, 2017
PWC is a very challenging work environment requiring personal initiative and perseverance to succeed. The firm is exceptionally well resourced with top tier talent and technology. It is somewhat provincial in terms of Partners and revenue sharing but this can be overcome through relationships and strong performance.
Pros
Talant, Technology
Cons
Structure, Compliance Orientation

Not a place for internal services careers
Assistant (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAApril 18, 2017
This job is enjoyable because of the direct team I support and the variety of work I get to be involved in. My thoughts, ideas and work is appreciated at the level right above me that I support. Unfortunately, there are several levels above that who do not show professional respect or appreciation of the talent within the internal services team (HR, M&S, L&D, Recruiting, Admins).

The culture here creates insecurity and doubt for internal services employees. Leadership talks about valuing employees while constantly changing the business model and outsources jobs as much as possible. The benefits are also changing and leaving employees with tough decisions to make about healthcare, which at a firm this size, should not be an issue.

Leadership typically likes to behave in the manner of "Do as I say, not as I do"; meaning, they want to talk about a positive culture but do not necessarily act in such a manner.

Good Firm, but zero work life balance
Experienced Assurance Associate (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 16, 2017
Good to start your career, but you will be having zero work life balance. the better you are, the most you work. Make sure to pass your CPA in the first year, otherwise the firm won't promote you...

ugh
Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLApril 14, 2017
A typical day of boredom in an unchallenging position working with people who find the things you find easy to be difficult. Constantly doing the same thing over and over and over, while other people get credit for your work. Well atleast you get paid and have PWC on your resume.

PwC Valuation Group - Management by Vendetta
Valuation Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 13, 2017
After peeling back the onion of big smiles and great compensation, you find a group of people who either gave up on their dreams or are so driven by money they are willing to back-stab each other to get ahead. Turnover is high, but when presenting management with hard evidence to improve conditions, egos got in the way. No change happened unless it made the city leader of Atlanta happy.

Typical accounting firm
Senior Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 12, 2017
Long hours, great pay (relative). Lots of opportunities for advancement but for the first few years, you'll be taken advantage of. Lots and lots of work and not much pay to start, but if you can make it past the hurdle and progress upward in the company, things to get better.
