Pros

The company provides excellent learning opportunities and a great base for advancing your career. You are working with intelligent individuals, both coworkers and clients, and are also able to get an overview and learn about various businesses and industries your clients operate.

Cons

The hours are long and one can find himself/herself in a very stressful environment at times. Almost always jobs are understaffed thus requiring team members to work long hours during year-end audits. Work-life balance (or it's rather called 'flexibility' now) is talked about a lot in recent years but in reality everybody forgets about this idea during the busy season (so if you keep getting scheduled on one year-end client after another you might never get a chance to experience the benefits).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve job staffing to reduce work overload.

    Challenging, Unfair at Times, Competetive, but Worth It

    Pros

    - Incredible Experience Opportunities
    - Depending on your Group, equally incredible travel opportunities
    - Everyone wants to hire current and former PwC Employees

    Cons

    - In terms of what your experience will be, it depends on the group you are entering, and even more importantly it heavily depends on the team you are joining, and the assignments you get. Think of it this way: Its like buying a car, sometimes you get a diamond, sometimes you get a lemon
    - No Work / Life Balance (Those who get some, its the exception to the general way of things)
    - Too much emphasis on petty details when it comes to documentation (this depends though on the engagement / team you work with)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Like them or not, they know what they are doing

    Proud of depth of topic exposure; discouraged by internal subjective evaluations.
