I worked at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

One of the best brands with some of the best people. Great work-life balance. Opportunity to travel to various locations.

Cons

Compensation and benefits are not up to the mark. In fact even when PwC did way better than their competitors their bonus stayed at par with them.

    I worked at PwC

    Pros

    Great learning experience through seminars and hands-on experience. Definitely a good stepping stone, if you want to advance your accounting career. Will sponsor your CPA.

    Cons

    Team pressure in working late hours. A lot of team members won't start to really focus on the job at hand until late morning and would rather stay long hours. My philosophy of starting the job early and getting it done, so we can leave on time (and thus save the client lots of money) was frowned upon by seniors and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your team members are working the job at hand and don't procrastinate in front of the privacy screen checking emails and Facebook.

    I worked at PwC full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, overall compensation is good, if a bit lower than market.

    Cons

    Disorganized like other big firms, lack of clear leadership, management changes their direction frequently. Don't get stuck in the firm for a long time the small annual bonuses don't align with the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to cure the 'Shoemakers children' problem. If you could listen and implement the kind of advice give to clients, the firm would have tens of millions less costs.
