    Pros

    Great training sessions for your job profile, good learning experience in Indirect taxation - we had opportunities to engage with Fortune 500 clients. Also had to interact frequently with Head of Taxation, and these interactions provided hands-on learning in Taxation.

    Cons

    Middle tier managers would sometimes encourage un-necessary long working hours. This resulted in a bad work-life balance, at times. Also, a major re-structuring occurred in early 2010, and most of our teams switched jobs to the competitor, thereby leaving gaps in responsibilities.

    It is one of the Big 4 and it is good to have a global consulting firm on your CV.

    Poor work life balance is the major disadvantage in working for PWC or any other big 4 firms with working late nights almost every other day and weekends. There is high attrition due to the same.

    Issue of work life balance needs to be addressed
