Pros

You really do get a chance to work with some of the brightest people from around the world at PwC. I was never at a loss for someone to lend a hand or help me understand a new concept.

Cons

It really is a meat grinder, but that is true of all of the Big 4 accounting firms. The hours are no joke and there really aren't "busy seasons" any more. You just work all the time all year long.

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Usually trys to do the right thing. Culture of partnership allows more of a beg forgiveness than ask permission culture, which keeps partnership nimble. Focus on education, opportunity and advancement. I believe compensation relative to Industry is good, but I need to spend more time in Glassdoor to confirm

    Cons

    Frequently seems like those that get promoted have more of a short term financial bottom line attitude than the general culture of long term growth. Sometimes achieves great results by outworking rather than out thinking. Maybe this is endemic to consulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue attitude of acquisition and growth during economic downturns.

    Pros

    An excellent platform to learn financial knowledge.

    Heavy work load during peak season.

    Maybe it'll be better if we can get more chance to learn about financial skills.
