    Pros

    The people and pwc are genuine, smart and interesting. Starting salary is not great, but you get compensated with the opportunities that ensue after getting experience there.

    Cons

    One of the challenges of working at PwC is the pressure of deadlines and late hours. This pretty much accompanies any job, but busy season can be very challenging to endure. You need to mentally prepare yourself.

    I worked at PwC as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best part working at PwC is definitely the people. You work as a team, and will make many very good friends. Also, there are many available resources (people, manuals, PwC help line,ect.) that can be referred to in case of any questions.

    Cons

    The biggest con of working for any of the big for is the hours worked and pressure that comes with busy season, overload of work, and strict short deadlines. There are times when one will be working 16-18 hour days. However, this should be expected especially in the tax department.

    I worked at PwC full-time

    Pros

    Staff mates are amazing. You will learn a lot from your peers and your managers. Like most prestigious employers it is a great one to have on your resume no matter where you go in the future. Great benefits and very competitive salaries. Opportunities to work in different divisions and even other countries are readily available.

    Cons

    The work is intense and long. Do not plan the rest of your life on making it to partner, very few do, and those that do work very hard. Your biggest challenge may be getter your worklife balance. If you decide to take an "opportunity' for a tour in another country or office, make sure you understand how it will affect your progress. Some seem to delay promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of your middle managers don't seem to get the "people initiative."
