    Pros

    Great experience at a fast pace. Tons of resume-building opportunities, leadership roles, and technical experiences. work with some of the biggest/best companies in the world.

    Cons

    Obviously the hours can become overwhelming at times and schedules can be unpredictable. Compensation is just average and bonuses are significantly less than corporate, but most people know that going in...personal agendas and grudges can get carried out in the evaluation room and you're left with little chance to defend yourself.

    My experience was great - my team treated me as an equal and I received associate-level work even though I was an intern

    Pros

    - Big Four is a great place to obtain valuable work experience - You're constantly learning new things everyday - Promotions are pretty much set in stone so you will advance your career every 3 years

    Cons

    - You will work long excruciating hours (busy season will consist of 16 hour days (seriously)). - The work can become a bit tedious and boring (but aren't most office jobs like that?)

    Advice to Management

    - Provide continuous feedback to your team members as it will benefit everyone - Provide set objectives and goals for the team to achieve

    Pros

    The people are outstanding. The clients are dynamic and provide opportunities to create cutting edge solutions and delivery. There is not cookie cutter approach to promotion, it is truly based on each person's ability to grow and perform.

    Cons

    In such a high performing environment it drives your hours. You have to own the work life balance area and understand that to continue to promote it will be tilted to the work side.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It's very easy to advance within PwC. The only people who stick around are people who can't get jobs elsewhere, so it's easy to look good compared to people who have been there longer than you. If you're motivated it's pretty easy to be an all-star.

    Cons

    Work life balance does not exist. Grossly underpaid for the hours worked. Don't even dare try to calculate your hourly wage. Unless you like working 80 hours a week and booking 60 of those so that your manager and partner don't get pissed for destroying the budget, look elsewhere. There are a number of firms in the area who will respect your contributions much more. At the San Jose PwC office you're just a number. There's a reason that turnover in this office is hovering between 35 and 40% right now.

    Advice to Management

    Management should consider listening to employees and addressing issues within the company. Stop holding office-wide events to discuss all of the improvements that are "coming" and actually do something.

    Pros

    Work flexibility, competency of management, competitive work environment, friendly work environment, ability to grow quickly, opportunities to travel, and good benefits.

    Cons

    Salary is competitive to the other Big Four accounting firms, but the nature of demand for the position helps to hold initial salaries down.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to continue to the great relationship with employees and the continuous work put forth to better grow the firm.
