    Pros

    Best reasons to work in PwC is to have personal growth, a lot of training and challenging environment in a professional manner.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of PwC Turkey are that You have a lot of clients at the same time. In terms of clients, deadlines and unacknowledged accounting staff, you have to face a lot of issues and propose a lot of adjustment of the financial statement of Client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can say, it would be great that the Company would try to affect and be more initiative roles in the new regulation of audit in Turkey

    I have been working at PwC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    PwC provides the best work experience in public accounting. The employees and clients you work with, even as an intern, provide an amazing learning opportunity not found elsewhere. You are constantly challenged with different work and exposed to different situations so that you are always learning and advancing. Overall, PwC is a great company to work for coming out of college. Their focus on learning and flexibility creates a great place to start a career.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be tough in public accounting, but this is only a minor challenge at PwC because teams are flexible you can work around any conflicts you may have.

    I have been working at PwC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They seemed to focus heavily on work life balance. I had good, real world experience working on my engagement. I had two different teams that worked well together.

    Cons

    A summer internship is good for introducing you to the firm and the type of work, but does not give the full picture considering the winter busy season.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have a flexible schedule which is great when you are putting in a lot of hours. I have worked at several places and these are the best people to work with. People are encouraging, helpful (everyone knows how hard it is when you start your first job out of college). You are also provided with many trainings, more than most companies. PwC definitely makes a point to take care of their own.

    Cons

    Depending on your line of service, there can be tough hours and tough teams to work on. Boston has a rotation program so you are not stuck on the first team you started with when you joined the firm, so you can really get a sense of where you fit best. No matter where you end up team wise though, expect a few parts of the year to have tough hours during busy seasons. That's just an overall Big 4 accounting firm con to expect no matter where you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the flexibility movement is a great one. Definitely continue along that track to allow greater work-life balance. Also, make sure to hire enough seasonals during busy seasons so people don't get burnt out.
