Huge Ego
Director (Former Employee), San Jose, CAApril 16, 2015
Select partners at PwC enjoy an ego bigger than the size of Montana; it is unfortunate because there are other pleasant partners. This type of leadership impairs PwC ability to excel from in the inside out

An overall good company to work for.
Contractor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 15, 2015
Pros: work life balance
Cons: Their hiring process is complicated and drawn out.
I loved working at the firm. This company values its employees and reinvests in them.The diversity and work life balance is also a plus.
A typical day would include working with your project team, traveling or assisting with the Onboarding process.

Experienced Associate - Transfer Pricing (Current Employee), New York, NYApril 9, 2015
The company has good benefits, but lacks work/life flexibility. The culture is sometimes very intense, but there are a lot of smart people there.

Excellent training, benefits and growth opportunities
Project Manager (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDApril 9, 2015
Pros: Training, benefits, growth opportunities, travel, exposure to top tier clients
Cons: Long hours, feedback culture can be extreme
PwC is an excellent launch pad for entry-level professionals looking for a distinctive career building experience. Employees work as part of intelligent teams in a dynamic, fast-paced environment and receive broad exposure to top tier clients.

Partners have an open door policy and are accessible to all levels of staff.

Many opportunities for travel and meeting staff in other offices, sometimes in other countries.

PwC has a high performance culture which means you work very hard and are rated against your peers. You are expected to give your all and continually strive to exceed your last great performance and often have to sacrifice your personal life to get ahead, although they are constantly looking for ways to improve work/life balance. You must be able to accept constant feedback on your performance which is taken overboard at times. You are generally well rewarded for hard work by way of compensation, bonuses and promotions.

Needs to be the right person
Intern (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAApril 9, 2015
Big4 culture was simply not for me, I have not minded big companies in the past, but this was another animal. It was a great way for me to see interesting work and get paid well to do it, but I couldn't wake up every day and go to PwC.

PwC has wonderful benefits...
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Philadelphia PAApril 9, 2015
Pros: Benefits and training....
Cons: They got away from the "Great Place to Work" philosophy
PwC has some of the best benefits out there...They used to stand by the philosophy of "Great Place to Work" but with coming of the latest MMP, all of that wen out of the window.

Principle Consultant (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCApril 7, 2015
The bottom line is this, if I had an opportunity to go back to PwC and work as a consultant or a FTE I would gladly accept it. They gave me opportunities of ownership and advancement and supported me along the way.

Office Clerk (Current Employee), Honolulu, HIApril 6, 2015
Pros: work independently, learn a lot of new things

Formerly a great place to work
Talent Management Specialist (Former Employee), Florham Park, NJMarch 30, 2015
Initially when I started at PwC it was a great place to work. My tasks were varied and measurable and management was available and supportive.
I learned a lot, worked hard and was promoted. However a typical day had no end and working 7 days per week was not unusual. The firm provided training in many areas and enhancement of soft skills. They recognized good performance.
When senior management changed(partners) and directors were not following the directives of senior management the pressure became insurmountable. Various individuals left at all levels.

Long hours with little work / life balance.
Experienced Assurance Associate (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 28, 2015
Pros: Corporate expense policy was quite liberal.
Cons: Long, unnecessary hours.
Like much of the Big 4 audit experience - my time at PwC was no different. Extremely long hours - with no regard for efficiency.

PwC Review
Senior Assurance Associate (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 27, 2015
PwC provides many opportunities to learn about companies that operate in various industries and co-workers are intelligent and a blast to work with. However, the work-life balance is extremely poor and employees are underpaid for the amount of hours that they put in.

Good place to get experience
IT Director, West Region (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 26, 2015
Pros: Excellent work-life balace
Good place to get in and get excellent work experience. However, this only applies to professional staff (those that earn money for the firm). Recently PwC decided that it was best to outsource all non-revenue generating positions.
