Many great work experiences, poor work life balance

Audit Senior Associate (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThere are a lot of great career opportunities and learning opportunities at PwC. There are opportunities to travel within the US and internationally.

ConsThere was always a fire to put out, which led to poor work life balance even though this was an area where the company was trying to improve. There is no compensation for overtime and it is expected that you will spend considerable time at home finishing up your work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Okay place to work as an assurance associate, some pros, some cons.

Assurance Associate (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at PwC full-time for more than a year

ProsPwC provides for career advancement within a relatively short amount of time. Assurance associates are given progressively challenging work throughout the year as well as year over year. PwC is a good place to launch your career, as having a Big 4 firm on your resume will give way to a lot of opportunities should you decide to leave. PwC offers a competitive compensation package as well.

ConsAt times, PwC can suffer from poor employee morale, strained by continuously increasing workloads. The competitive culture at PwC often has people blaming other's for their mistakes to save themselves, usually because management focuses on who caused a problem rather than focusing on how to get past it.

Phenomenal!

Risk Assurance Intern (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at PwC full-time for less than a year

ProsPays well, demanding but well supported, excellent training, overtime available, great team building and development, realistic job preview - same duties as 1st year associate

ConsSteep learning curve - training is very intense, several systems to learn, possible long hours though overtime is paid, possible travel around Southeast MI / Greater Detroit

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Just like any other Big 4

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at PwC full-time for less than a year

ProsPwC has been really good about trying to listen to me in regard to getting me on the clients in the location that I would like to be at.

ConsLike any Big 4 accounting firm finding balance in your life is difficult. With long hours and constant living of being the auditor it is difficult to find satisfaction in your job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place to be if you can put up with the bureaucracy and inefficiency of being part of a large global organization.

Get it on your resume then leave

Experienced Internal Audit Associate (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at PwC

ProsThe culture was great. (I was a former D&T employee). Not many back stabbers (only a couple). Everyone "seemed" sincere. Great training, nice offices, great name recognition. Your resume would stand out like gold!

ConsIt's a "who you know" kind of club. If you're not "in", no need to bust your butt working yourself to death. Just do the bare minimum and collect a paycheck. Too man "smile in your face, talk behind your back" workers there. It's competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementActually "READ" the upward feedback. There are a lot of staff that give feedback on management and how they operate. But for some reason, the staff are the ones that get chewed out when something goes wrong.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
