all amenities were there
Deputy facilities manager (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 23, 2017
I stayed there more than 6 days a week (day & night)
I learned how to run an establishment consists of +100
I was planning, monitoring projects and billing the sub-contractors.
the management / all managers were american employees
the hardest point was the security, the situation was terrible at that time
the most enjoyable thing was work with foreign people and learn from them

Great place to work until lay offs
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 22, 2017
This is a great place to work if you are young in your career. They provide valuable training. As you progress through your career, however, they aren't honest and straightforward with advancement potential.
Pros
Training, work life balance
Cons
Healthcare, advancement opportunities

it is a job
Worked on projects tax (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCJuly 18, 2017
If you like being alone in your cubicle listening to music for 8 hours straight with 0 human interaction then you will love this job! work comes seasonally depending on the project pipeline. about oct-dec there was 0 work, you did computer based training aka bingewatch netflix until you feel sick. When there is work you are being micromanaged even when you send an email think 5 yr old emailing. That type of supervising. When you walk down the hallway and say hi you get blank stares or angry frowns.. Busy season is good because money and over time... expect to have 0 days off even weekends, work work work and bribe you with a $100 gift card.. it is quantity over quality to win you that card. This is a job just as something to slap on your resume.
Pros
free lunch if you count leftovers in the breakroom from another meeting lol
Cons
micro managing, healthcare is horribly expensive esp. with the deductibles, busy season expect to have 0 social life, and when there is 0 work I hope you have netflix and unlimited data

Not Applicable
Experienced Associate 3+ years (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJuly 17, 2017
Lots of politics, learning, growth, lack of employee confidentiality, and high stress environment. CPA pass requirement for promotion to Senior after 3 years. Other Big 4 will promote after 2 years with CPA requirement during Senior level from what I understand. Lots of experience gained and opportunity to build relationships with multitudes of people due to being on many client engagements.
Pros
Lot of growth and learning
Cons
No respect for scheduled time off even for CPA prep

Great internship
Risk Assurance Intern (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 14, 2017
I go into work and they have tasks ready for me. I wasn't sure what risk assurance was going into it but I really enjoy it as it combines auditing with information systems. The culture is "work hard, play hard" which is good because all of the people I work with are under 30 years old. The people definitely make the job.
Pros

Great company but supervisors need more training.
Tax Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 13, 2017
PWC is a great company to work for. They offer fair pay with great benefits. As expected in the tax industry, there are times when you could expect to work long hours and the job will become stressful. The company does its best to alleviate some of the stress that comes with the job. My biggest complaint is that people are promoted to supervisor purely because they have tenor. This is likely due to the high turnover rate that is common in this industry. Many of the supervisors would benefit from team training exercises and managerial classes. I

The firm works until it doesn't
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 13, 2017
The culture used to be a great place to work. With all the acquisitions and the constant hiring, the culture has shifted to people being competitive and not working with one another. It is nice to have competition once in a while but everyday at work is tiring, especially when dealing with difficult clients. They are also VERY stingy with promotions.

The work was challenging in a positive way since I was able to learn a lot on the job. The training prepared me adequately and team members were always still eager to help me when I had questions. Everyone was professional, yet friendly.

HR is very inconsistent
Medical Billing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCJuly 11, 2017
This place could be so much better if things would be organized correctly. They are starting many new projects so many things are trial and error. They tell you things when you start that aren't necessarily true.

Good company, this fits personalities who crave stability but also want a challenging and engaging job. Lots of great exit opportunities. May not be for all personalities though.
