A great place to grow if you're willing to put in the work

Senior Associate (Current Employee) McLean, VA

Pros- Career Progression - The management really cares about your growth. If you speak up on what you need for growth, they will do their best to find you the opportunities to learn. Training is also top notch. They will invest a lot of money and time to make sure you are ready for the next step in your career.
- Compensation - They are very transparent about how your salary and bonus is determined.
- Work/Life Balance - Make no mistake. Work/life balance does not mean you will work less hours. You are required to maintain a certain level of utilization hours per week, but you get the flexibility on when you can do the work.
- Vacation - You get unlimited sick days and a decent number of floating holidays and PTO hours. You can work hard and spend the quality time with your family after.
- Reputation - PwC has a great reputation and it will open great opportunities within and outside the firm.

Cons- Busy season can be tough and unfortunately, that's just the way it is. If you cannot handle being in the office and coming home at midnight during busy season, don't bother applying here. It's what you sign up for.
- Like any career in client services, you will deal with good clients and you will deal with not-so-great clients. Your soft skills will come in handy in making sure that you can develop great relationships and manage your stress with multiple deadlines and fast paced work weeks.
- Depending on your line of service, you may not be able to make certain investments that may cause a conflict of interest. Maintaining independence and complying to regulations can be a pain depending on your portfolio.
- If you are a Senior Associate or below, some training sessions may require you to stay in a hotel with a roommate, which can be a bit of a coin-toss.

Advice to Senior Management- Continue the frequent communication and transparency from the leadership.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
