    A good employer, but requires too much of its employees.

    Tax Associate (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsVery good employer, good benefits, high level of knowledge at all levels, opportunity to work in global projects, and culturally diverse.

    ConsIt requires long hours; you end up working 50 to 60 hours a week for a regular salary (low salary if we take into consideration all the stress, responsibility and hours devoted to the work). The environment is very demanding; you end up living only to work. If you have a family you will have to put work first, projects are demanding and usually need immediate assistance, (so it can mean working until very late, weekends, etc...) . It has an employee review process that is very strict and you are being compared to people who work 70 and 80 hours a week, so even if you work 50 you will still look like if you did not put enough effort. You actually feel like a machine, forget about your personal life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork/life balance is not really true; it is a place full of workaholics.

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

    A great way to start your career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsIt is a place to be proud of and everyone recognizes the name. Many companies hiring look for big four experience.

    ConsThere are a lot of long hours. It is hard to maintain work-life balance, even though leadership gives it their best effort. It's just a tough industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing and coming up with good ideas to make PwC a great place to work.

    My experience at PwC has made me realize the importance of who has your back...repuation is everything.

    Audit Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    Prosprestige of company, resume gold, great learning experience, high standards, independence, flexibility as needed

    Consbusy-season feels like a jail sentence (but that is big 4), reviews can be subjective...it's who you know...

    If you can endure the stress and abuse, it will pay off.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsName recognition. If you have PwC on your resume, you are pretty much golden in the market place. The longer you stay and take the abuse, the more you make in the long run.

    ConsThe abuse, the hours, not being appreciated for all of the hard work that you put in. It becomes expected that you will not have a life during large periods throughout the year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire appropriately. HR should not be surprised when people leave in the summer / early fall since it happens EVERY year. Hire a few extra for once so that we aren't killing ourselves and can actually have that "work / life balance" that you keep on touting.

    * Mobility
    *A lot of training

    Working at PwC: The truth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsThe best about working in PwC is the training and resources offered. You are always learning and that helps you become a better professional.

    ConsWorking at PricewaterhouseCoopers is consuming. You have to forget about your personal life and only focus on your job. The overtime you work is enormous and you do not get compensated for it. It is a very demanding job, in which you are expected to go beyond and above what you can handle, until you realize you do not have any more life, other than your work. Since this has become part of the corporate culture, every one works on the same standards. You become a slave of the corporate system.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think, management should start rewarding employees according to their performance and hours worked. In addition, management should reduce the hours employee have to work, most employees do not need to be in the office for long hours, the problem is that managers and directors usually are consumed by work, so the rest of the team has to be there or it would not look good. I think if the expectation is to have workaholics, then make budget for a fair compensation.
