    Former Intern - Winter Intern in Pittsburgh, PA

    I worked at PwC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great first hand business experience. Was a great way to get accustomed to office life and gain valuable accounting knowledge.

    Cons

    People always say the hours but that is expected in any public accounting job. As an intern though you reap the benefits of overtime so it's not too bad at all.

    Pros

    Provides a ton of opportunity for a future career and has great growth potential.

    Cons

    In tax season you will work a ton of hours and it is very tough to have a work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to cut down on hours.

    A necessary evil of first jobs in the accounting world

    Former Employee - Audit Associate in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Audit Associate in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Endless resources -which you won't take advantage of and only miss once you leave,
    Network opportunities- chances are 90% of your coworkers will leave and go out to other companies
    The name- as much as we hate to admit it having a Big 4 on your resume opens doors. Suck it up and put in your 1-3 years

    Cons

    Zero work life balance- just count this as another layer of college with many late nights "studying"
    Office Culture- varies from location, service and even industry, but for the most part it is get the work done at all costs including your personal life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job weeding out poor and unfit management- they are the reason your staff will love or hate going to work everyday.
