    Pros

    Great people working in the office. Busy season isn't as bad as the the folks in audit. Great benefits at PwC.

    I worked at PwC

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity surrounded by the best and the brightest talent. Everyone is very professional and driven to succeed. You gain a lot of experience that is marketable when you decide to leave a big 4 accounting firm. Just having the name on your resume gives you instant credibility in my experience. People know you are a high caliber employee if you worked at PwC.

    Cons

    Management expects a lot from you (compensation reflects this - ie. high pay). They firm tries to promote work life balance but at the end of the day you have to decide how much of your life you want to be work. I found most people gain the experience by working in public accounting then go work in industry (often for a former client) for better work life balance. It is easy to get burned out. Seasonal work can make it difficult to stay long term especially as you begin to establish a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruitment continues to be hugely important. Continue to higher high caliber employees - they are benefiting greatly by working for the firm.

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

    Pros

    Excellent training opportunities, a wide variety of experience, formal and informal coaching, the ability to participate in meetings with senior level executives at a relatively low level within the firm

    Cons

    It can be difficult to break into another area of the firm unless you know someone. You can be perfectly qualified for a role on a given project but the manager/ director/ partner leading the team might not take you if you are an unknown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great strides have been made regarding transparency in compensation, but most of it is backwards looking. It'd be nice to know, with a high degree of certainty, your earning potential at various levels. The tool that currently exists was not accurate for me at all.
