Pros

The people you meet!! Resume name recognition. The experience of working for a Big 4 accounting firm to see what it is all about. The benefits are great and PwC does invest in their people if you can stick it out.

Cons

The hours do get long in busy season. The work isn't challenging as a process specialist. If they offer a "Seasonal" position, do NOT take it. You can do better than that especially if you earned a masters degree. You will sacrifice too much on your end trying to get your foot in the door and prove yourself. The duties of the process specialist are outsourced overseas. The mentality of the Tampa, FL office is like a call center.

Advice to Management

For the corporate office, nothing at all. PwC is one of the greatest places to work. However, I can not say the same for the Tampa, FL office. Learn to actually run a business and forecast the work correctly. The spoon fed business model doesn't make logical sense. Don't bring in all these intelligent, hard working people and use them up. Assets are leaving your building, not liabilities. Remember that!

    Pros

    22 vacation days per year.

    Cons

    Annual 60K, but if you break it down hourly by actual hours worked, I averaged 13 dollars an hour.

  2. It was a rewarding and stressful experience at the same time.
