Pros

Working at PwC has been one of the best decisions I made coming out of school. From the very beginning you get great exposure to top-level people within the firm and at your clients. You see how different businesses are structured and operate, and get a feel for real world application of the accounting practices you learn in school. The people within the firm are unbelievably intelligent, and the firm itself does a great job of focusing on quality. The job is fast paced and always pushes you slighly outside of your comfort zone. You'll be shocked at how much you learn in just a short period of time.

Cons

It's hard to think of this as a sustainable career choice long-term. The time commitment is substantial.

    A good employer, but requires too much of its employees.

    Pros

    Very good employer, good benefits, high level of knowledge at all levels, opportunity to work in global projects, and culturally diverse.

    Cons

    It requires long hours; you end up working 50 to 60 hours a week for a regular salary (low salary if we take into consideration all the stress, responsibility and hours devoted to the work). The environment is very demanding; you end up living only to work. If you have a family you will have to put work first, projects are demanding and usually need immediate assistance, (so it can mean working until very late, weekends, etc...) . It has an employee review process that is very strict and you are being compared to people who work 70 and 80 hours a week, so even if you work 50 you will still look like if you did not put enough effort. You actually feel like a machine, forget about your personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work/life balance is not really true; it is a place full of workaholics.
