    Pros

    Great Training, Great exposure to all Tax matters, Great career advancement, Great People.

    Cons

    Maybe more work life balance, instead of judging people leave work at 5:30, try to be more productive in the morning rather than wait for 6pm and go for dinner and come back apply for OT pay

    Advice to Management

    More pay will be nice

    Pros

    Great career progression. top name clients, typically higher pay than other firms. Great vacation policy - sick days do not count against vacation time.

    Cons

    Takes one year longer than other firms for promotion to Sr associate. Hours and commute can be bad out of the San Jose office.

    Advice to Management

    There should be an increased effort in promoting staff through the ranks rather than hiring experienced hires or international rotations.

    Pros

    Quality people, project and culture. Feels like the new "advisory" rejuvenation of the last 15 years is paying off and the leadership is trying out interesting "entrepreneurial" new service offerings. I really like my time at PwC.

    Cons

    Large, can feel a bit like a zoo, and has a hiring process that can turn some people off. Much "friendlier" processes once inside the firm.

    Pros

    Large firm with plenty of resources to help train employees. Lots of opportunities to gain exposure to a wide variety of accounting issues.

    Cons

    Because the firm is so large, it is easy to get lost in the firm if you aren't vocal. If you want opportunities, it is up to you to seek after them because the firm might just leave you where you are.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better rewards for your top performers. There doesn't appear to be much differentiation between employees in terms of promotion. Everyone is on a conveyor belt and not recognized for their readiness and contribution.

    Pros

    Great experience as a contractor during busy season. You work a lot but they compensate you with overtime, comped meals, etc. and it's just a great company to work for

    Cons

    The work is very repetitive and can be mind numbing at times

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice to give... If the contracts were longer than 3 months I would say trach the temporary employees more to help out during busy season but such short contracts so might not be worthwhile for the ckmpany

  11. I love the work I do and the fun yet rewarding environment I work in.
