Pros

Mostly great people work here. If you land an audit job, expect long hours. You may find some of the managers and/or seniors to be not that helpful, or not have enough knowledge, so you may have to do your own research to get the job done. Good learning experience depending on which project you are.

Cons

Long hours.. In busy season, you may be booked to couple or more projects at the same time, and all of them might have same deadlines.

    Lack of Work/Life Balance, Extended Busy season, Low Employee Morale, Excessive turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PwC in recent years has tried to stress flexibility but with its emphasis on quality makes it nearly impossible. You know what you are signing up for when you work for big 4 but somehow you always think that it will be as described by the company. The things you hear from personnel in recruiting normally are not true.

    I worked at PwC full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
