    Audit Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    Harrisburg, PA

    ProsExcellent investment in your career if you can withstand the long hours and lack of appreciation

    ConsBrutal hours, multiple busy seasons, not a diverse as they let on be

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to remember what it was like in Big 4 before they were management.

    Great place to start a career.

    Senior Associate (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThere's no experience right out of college than a Big 4 Firm. Great place to put in your time, provides limitless opportunities in the industry. It's a fun place to work - the people are awesome and there are usually lots of fun activities/teambuilding (when you have time to attend).

    ConsWork/life balance sucks. Utliization targets are set ridiculously high based on all of the extracurriculars you are expected to participate in (community service, affinity groups, etc.).

    Opportunity for growth.

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Phila, PA

    ProsPrograms readily available for learning more about the business and personal growth.

    ConsOn occasion, work-life balance can be a challenge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to "ask" the staff about client demands and expectations as you have in town hall meetings. Refocus on your administrative support and their value to the overall operation.

    Great culture; long hours

    Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThe culture is excellent, the work is constantly changing and challenging and there is excellent opportunity for growth. The company is also great about flexibility such as working from home some days, taking off early during non peak seasons etc.

    ConsObviously, the public accounting aspect makes for extremely long hours during busy season. However, hard work is paid off in the form of flexibility during non peak bonuses and performance based bonuses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to realize that the people are the main resource; treating them well and rewarding them for hard work will ensure PwC continues to be one of the most respected consulting firms in the world.

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

    Learned a lot, people were mostly great...

    Assurance Intern (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsI did an internship with PwC and I learned a great deal about auditing. The people were mostly friendly and were willing to walk me through many of the processes.

    ConsA partner blatantly lied to my face about my role with the company. The work-life balance was awful for many co-workers and many team members seemed miserable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with a little more respect and allow for a little more flexibility with people's personal lives. Obviously the partners are very intelligent people with a lot to deal with themselves, but there's a reason why everyone was leaving.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Work hard, play hard; expect to be compensated well and learn the most you can, work long hours to achieve highly.

    Tax Associate (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsBest experience, good compensation and vacation

    ConsLong hours and tax season can be very stressful at times, but the comp. and prestige is worth it

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe flexibility thing is working well, keep it up

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