Very productive workplace
Claims Advocate & Medical Collector II (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCJuly 21, 2016
Review collector I work to ensure the accounts are worked to resolution. Work accounts to resolution. I've learned to be patient and help co-workers when in need. The hardest part is over analyzing on some of the accounts that are a bit of a challenge. When the company has luncheons for the employees and just enjoying co-workers.
Pros
Getting extra cash every month when you resolve a certain amount of accounts

PWC Internship Review
Intern - International Assignment Services (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTJanuary 5, 2016
The internship was during the busy tax season. The long hours and intensive work environment taught me time management skills and effective communication skills. My co-workers were very team oriented and offered assistance with any issues or problems. The most enjoyable part of the job was to work as a team with a manager and a senior associate to complete various tax returns for a client.
Pros
Working with managers and partners.

Interesting workplace provides broad experience in regulatory compliance.
Manager, Banking & Financial Services (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 24, 2016
I started at PWC in 2010 and have worked on engagements at a wide range of financial services firms. My primary focus has been helping these firms develop effective procedures to help manage regulatory compliance risks.

A typical project involved (1) reviewing existing policies and procedures, (2) testing to determine whether procedures are being followed, (3) assessing whether existing procedures adequately mitigate the specific risk they are designed to manage and (4) recommending enhancements to existing procedures.

Working at PWC allowed me an opportunity to gain direct regulatory compliance experience at a wide range of financial services firms, from alternative invent advisers to large, multi-national banking institutions.

Team members are always willing to help each other achieve targets.
Trainee Associate (Assurance) (Current Employee) –  Ghana, Airport CityJuly 2, 2016
I was faced with a virtually new area of my work which was ideally to be taken by a more experienced team member. This was around the testing of deposits in a financial institution.

I had consult other team experienced team members who were all ears. They actually helped me out by seeking effective coaching and this reflected positively in the final work.

I was amazed!

Big4 consulting is trending down
Manager, Advisory Services LLC (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJune 24, 2016
If you join the firm as an associate, it's a better place to start. If you start as an Experienced Hire, finding a coach that will actually help you through the network is challenging. You're not always going to get on the right project, and annual bonuses are not calculated with transparency.
Pros
IF you can get on a good project, it's good experience.
Cons
Benefits have dropped since the firm moved to UHC, 401 matching is 6%

like all consultantcies, run like a medieval fiefdom

Flexibility in ability to work from home; great relationships from co workers; frequent leadership changes. Growth potential as far as training and mentoring available to staff at PwC.

Great company to be with
Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 16, 2015
Great places to be with, great people around and lot of learning. Nice compensation. PwC brand value in the market is great and love to be there.

You can only grow here if you are close or made personal relationship with directors and above. If not you can't just grow. Politics here sucks.
Pros
Good compensation and packages, great people around to work with amazing learning when it comes to technology
Cons
Growth would not depend on your performance or ability but who likes you.

Great place for a busy season contract
Senior Audit Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 2, 2016
PwC invested a lot in my training in the latest audit software which turned out to be invaluable when thrust into busy season work. I was very impressed by the work ethic of all those involved on my team. There isn't much work life balance during busy season, but every effort is made to ensure that important personal events are not missed. As for job security, this was a three month contract position.
Pros
Challenging atmosphere
Cons
Hours during busy season. However, this was well explained.

Will Work you Hard and Learn A Lot
Experienced Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 3, 2016
You will work very very hard, and things roll down hill. If you are in audit especially, get ready for tough schedule especially during busy season. Company does a very good job "preaching" corporate culture but simply put it's just not for everybody. At the same time, you work with tremendously smart and motivated people who can teach you the in's and out's of their business and how to be a professional
Pros
Smart People
Cons
no breaks, vacation discouraged
