    Pros

    Great learning place and people are always willing to coach you. There's always work to be done.

    Former Employee - Senior Associate Actuary in Boston, MA

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a great accounting firm to have on one's resume, for when it becomes worth it to seek a better opportunity later.

    Cons

    After working for a small company now, I would never recommend working for a large company to anyone - there's so much time wasted filling out forms justifying your job that you don't actually get to do any work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to run this company of 30,000 more like a company of 30, and everyone will be a lot happier.

    Former Intern - FSA Intern in Boston, MA
    Former Intern - FSA Intern in Boston, MA

    I worked at PwC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure to financial services. There's isn't a whole lot of places where you'll be exposed to as many different industries as PwC.
    Great team based setting where you'll be mentored by very smart people.
    Open door policies where interns can just pop into a manager or director's office for a chat.
    Can't complaint about the paid.

    Cons

    Long hours, but then again everyone should've known when they signed up for a Big Four firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are doing fine, keep up the good work.

    The company in general is fine but my manager was terrible.

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was decent and a lot of potential career advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    My manager was more interested in getting rid of everyone instead of working with them to improve her team.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady growth path, flexible work, incredible business exposure.

    Cons

    -Work hours can be exhausting as you find yourself making up work on the weekends.
    -Multiple reporting managers, with tight schedules.
    -Enough work that you can never fully get "caught up", which makes your compensation seem very small (example: 2500 billable hours; Associate Salary roughly 60k (major us city); $24 an hour. 2nd/3rd year associates make $1 less an hour than interns and do not receive overtime.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to front your company like a top-tier a finance firm, you need to either hire more people to complete the work, or improve your compensation to match the hours.
