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

    Pros

    None, the prestige that you would otherwise have is non-existent because PWC won't recognize you as an employee.

    Cons

    Menial work. You are literally typing numbers off a spreadsheet into another program. A five year old could do this job. They are hiring people without degrees so they can pay less than the pittance of a salary they already provide. You will get zero useful experience and when you leave here after a number of years will be forced to take an entry level job like a new college graduate with no experience because of your lack of real accounting skills. Management refuses to let anyone transfer to the practice office. They will dangle a carrot of transfer, but once you are eligible they start making excuses. No one other than management has ever transferred from the SDC to the practice office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying about the ability to transfer.

    Pros

    Benefits, Flexibility, Training, Resume, Pride-Quality of service we provide to clients, Community involvement and support - both locally and on a world wide stage

    Cons

    Cons are inherent with working big four public accounting and tax (compliance)
    - busy season, admin, the job is outside of "busy season" still a 45-50 hour a week job. Busy season is more than just 2 months, and the ask of those hours can be 60-80 hours - sure maybe you're only charging 55-65, but there is still admin...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce Admin (though not sure how), continue to provide a transparent approach to management, continue to find more effective ways to utilize seasonal support so busy season isn't so long.
