    I have been working at PwC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for with many great opportunities for career advancement, a challenging day-to-day workload and extremely bright and talented coworkers

    Cons

    For interns there are no true 'Cons'. By doing this internship you get to work the most talented and brightest individual in accounting in the world. You will have access to a wide variety of clients and industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. I felt the training sufficiently prepared me for the work I was expected to do and there is never a lack of resources.

    Former Employee - Associate in Tysons Corner, VA

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    People were supportive of taking on more work. Training was ok. Lots of appreciation activities.

    Cons

    Pay was par with the competition. Travel was unpredictable and challenging. Like any organization, not all colleagues were as committed as you would hope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing, but work to identify talent earlier. It is a bit of a churn and burn, and more than it has to be for the most competent.

    Energetic atmosphere, need to be quick on your feet, great compensation. Drive for success is evident in everyone, bolstering your drive as well.

    Competitive, can be seen as difficult, not risk-adverse. Must learn to cope with difficult situations without showing stress

    Continue to allow rise to partners for associates, expand the market for clients, focus on profitability and maximization for clients.

    I have been working at PwC

    Pros

    Benefits are top of the line. 4 weeks of vacation is pretty solid. If you ask around, there are a lot of opportunities outside of the typical Audit / Tax world.

    Cons

    Hours. Promotions are rather rigid. Typically three year increments in audit. High turnover due to hours / burn out.
