    part time account coordinator

    Account Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsA very professional environment and a culture that promotes opportunity for growth.

    ConsThe office is huge, so it can be easy to feel like just another number/employee. It's very different from working at a smaller company where everyone knows your name. That may not be the case here.

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

    Be Patient

    Tax Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIt can take a couple of years to find what you like doing at PwC. It can be a difficult process, some long hours for sure, but other times are incredibly slow. When you start, it would be a good idea to talk to others about what they do, after each of your first two years let people know you want to move to different groups within the company to try out different things. You'll find what you like/don't like--it will make your experience not only more rewarding, but more enjoyable.

    ConsSometimes you have to work with one of "those" people, but I've found that to be rare. Don't let it actually be a con for seeking work at PwC. Pay felt a tad on the low side when you are an associate (though perhaps not), but the jump in pay when making senior hit the spot.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to encourage new associates to try out different groups, i.e. rotate every year to learn what other work is available within the company.

    Great internship

    Semester of Discovery Intern (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe culture and the people were great! It makes you want to be part of their teams. There are wonderful opportunities to move up and experiences made available that may not be available else where. They heavily invest in their employees.

    ConsFuture work/life balance is poor

    It has been superb, excellent work environment, lot of support and encouragement from Seniors

    Associate - Advisory (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGreat work environment, challenging and pulsating charged environment. Seniors also are working at the same frenetic pace as junior / new employees, and are extremely supportive, and give a lot of responsibility.

    ConsLot of politicking by some individuals (as in every office, nothing unusual), however could be kept in check. Considering the workload compensation should be way higher.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation packages should be more generous considering the huge effort required of employees.

    Challenging and interesting consulting role at PwC

    Senior Associate - Advisory (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe best thing about working at PwC Healthcare Advisory is that you get to work with variety of projects, roles, clients and teams

    ConsDue to 100% travel expectations and bad work life balance, working in PwC advisory is not sustainable. It is hard to continue working with the same passion when you are putting in long hours in sometimes stressful situations

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

    Transaction Services - Valuations

    Transactions Services Valuation Associate (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe LA office is very flexible - most people work from home on Fridays, even during busy season
    Opportunities to take on additional responsibilities
    Good group of associates/seniors in general

    ConsThis group (valuations) is a dying group. The work is very heavy on the C1 (audit client) side
    The directors are horrible people to work with
    The partner does not know what's happening in the group
    Lower levels of work mean no bonus for associates

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop driving out the top talent at the associate/senior level, you're only promoting middle talent and you're losing your best managers and directors. Stop promoting people only in July, and allow top performing second year associates the opportunity to be promoted if they've earned it.
