The campus speeches and printed materials about PwC do not mirror the actual culture...watch your back!

Pros

It looks great on your resume.

Cons

Your experience completely depends on the group you get to work with/for and your assigned client(s). Unfortunately, I worked with a hell Director that had no life herself and therefore did not allow anyone on our team to have a life. They contuniously preach (and put in print) the importance of work/life balance, but behind the scenes (and definitely not in print), they put unrealistic demands on Management and Staff which makes it nearly impossible to have a life. And unfortunately they do not currently have the amount of work available for individuals to make a choice. Additionally, moving ahead in the Firm does not depend on your quality of work but on who you know and how well the Partners like you and unfortunately the office I was in contains a large number of "good ole boy" Partners that are still resistant to women moving ahead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach. OneFirm should not just be a slogan.

    Great career experience but not very personally rewarding.

    Pros

    A lot of exposure to different things/issues that you wouldn't get outside of any public accounting firm. The benefits are great. Lots of time off, healthcare options are good and low pay. But, even if you get a ton of time off, it's hard to take them sometimes because you are just too busy and can't afford to take the time off.

    Cons

    Long hours and corporate culture isn't very great. The pay isn't as good as what you would get in industry. Some people in the company are really cool and great to work for. But, there are its share of people in the company who are really difficult to work for and generally negative people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk. They constantly try to emphasize work/life balance, but senior management are always working. They don't have work/life balance. If they don't have that, then how will that trickle down to their employees and send them the signal that they are trying to improve work/life balance. In the end, staff and lower management don't get work/life balance.
