Never a shortage of new experience and learning

Audit Manager (Former Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at PwC full-time for more than 8 years

ProsWith a worldwide network of affiliated firms and multiple lines of service, there is ample opportunity to grow professionally. Like any big four firm, PwC makes significant investments in its people and technology, which position the firm to attract the biggest and most sophisticated clients. This type of experience is highly valuable.

ConsIt is no secret that hard work and sometimes long hours are expected from many of the professionals working in the firm.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

Tons of opportunity to advance your career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at PwC

ProsGreat people and a huge global presence across audit, tax, and advisory. With the many acquistions over the last few years (booz being the most recent), PwC's advisory practice is truly becoming the consulting leader in many areas and allows its people to learn and grow in a very fast paced and dynamic environment.

ConsWith lots of opportunities comes lots of hours so you just need to know how to manage your time well with working in a very fast paced environment.
