    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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.

    Pros

    PwC 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.

    Cons

    At 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.

    Pros

    PwC 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.

    Cons

    Like 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.
