    Houston Risk Assurance

    Risk Assurance Associate (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGreat leadership team, continuous learning, and opportunity to grow. The Houston office has the best clients, whether they be energy, finance, or healthcare.

    ConsComing in as an experience hired is difficult. Was misled by the recruited about the type of work and the 'work-life balance,' or lack of. Can be very political - definitely has a good-ole-boy feel - but coming from people who have never worked outside of Big 4. You schedule is based on billable hours, so if your efficient, you get screwed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't mislead potential hired during recruiting. Be up front about everything - pros and cons.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people, great experience, very stressfull

    Experienced Audit Associate (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsI have learned more in three years at PwC than most people learn in 10 while in industry. As a general rule, the people that work there are great to work with.

    ConsThe hours can be awful. The benefits are not very good (other than the amount of paid vacation). Performance measure can sometimes feel arbitrary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI don't believe the old business model will work in the current regulatory environment. The amount of knowledge required, even of the associates, is significant, and the level of turnover means that we are constantly behind the curve.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Strong and Stable

    Senior Associate - Advisory (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsEverything is pretty lock step in terms of promotions, bonuses and raises. As long as you work hard you should fulfill expectations.

    ConsAdvisory work is a little less predictable than Audit in terms of busy times. It does require a bit of travel to not so ideal destinations.

    Engaging and Rewarding

    Senior Associate - Assurance (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsGreat starting salary + wonderful team.

    I have the pleasure of working for a company that gives me flexibility and choice to shape my career.

    ConsI do not have a lot of negative experiences so far, but every company has them. To succeed one needs to balance work priorities with personal priorities. Finding a balance in Big 4 is a challenge.

    Great experience for your resume and professional development but hours will be long.

    Audit Senior Associate (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsTremendous experience working with some of the best and brightest in the accounting field. Very good exposure to a diverse range of clients, from small start-ups to large, accelerated SEC filers.

    ConsHours are long and not limited to the traditional "busy season" period in the beginning of the year. Bonuses are not guaranteed. The health benefit decreased significantly when they recently transitioned to a high-deductible HSA plan.
