PwC Challenging work,potentially transformative to your career
Manager, Healthcare Advisory (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CANovember 1, 2014
Pros: challenging work, very good compensation.
Cons: not for the weak or those looking to 'phone it in', you must truly prove yourself to get promoted, work/life balance can be very limited
As a high performance organization, PwC provides a challenging environment which cultivates personal integrity, knowledge, skills, and tenacity within an individual, preparing them for growth and greater success in their career.

While you have the opportunity to develop and refine skills which can make you extremely valuable in your career, it isn't for everyone. You will work harder and sacrifice more working for a 'Big 4' firm than for just about any other organization. PwC is in some ways like the US Marine Corps. It is highly disciplined, promotes a 'can do' attitude, mobilizes quickly on engagements, and expects a outstanding performance from its employees. In my opinion it is the best of the big 4 in regard to advisory work.

Great benefits but at a price
support staff (Current Employee), San Jose, CAOctober 30, 2014
So they have great work/life benefits for MOST positions. Sometimes it feels like they hang a carrot right out of reach. However, they do support flex time, have unlimited sick and often cover some of the extra days on the mandatory shut down Christmas and 4th of July time periods.

They are changing their coaching/review style and are having trouble figuring out what it means. Growing pains.

Quite a few positions are now being posted as 'fixed term' meaning they will re-access in a year. Lots of jobs have been out sourced both internationally and to contractors.

Well-known company, talented administration.
Executive Assistant - Division Leader - Consulting (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAOctober 3, 2014
Pros: high-end company; looks good on a resume.
Cons: culture favored financial experts only.
I worked for a type A boss who was demoted soon after I resigned. The work was intense, but less interesting than other positions I have held. The morale for administrative personnel was less that ideal. My responsibilities were to plan travel and events.
