If you're sure you want Big 4 Public Accounting Tax - PWC is the place to do it!

Tax Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBenefits, Flexibility, Training, Resume, Pride-Quality of service we provide to clients, Community involvement and support - both locally and on a world wide stage

ConsCons are inherent with working big four public accounting and tax (compliance)
- busy season, admin, the job is outside of "busy season" still a 45-50 hour a week job. Busy season is more than just 2 months, and the ask of those hours can be 60-80 hours - sure maybe you're only charging 55-65, but there is still admin...

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce Admin (though not sure how), continue to provide a transparent approach to management, continue to find more effective ways to utilize seasonal support so busy season isn't so long.

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

Young, hardworking, professional atmosphere. You can easily get overworked though.

Audit Senior Associate (Current Employee)

ProsWork with smart, hard working people. Move up the ladder quick. Tons of training that gets you more than enough CPE per year. Looks great on your resume and will be a great start to your career.

Great place to start, not end up

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at PwC

ProsPwC is a great place to gain rapid professional experience across a wide range of industries and clients. I beleive each year of PwC experience is equal to approximately 3 years in industry.

ConsIt is easy to top out at PwC. Working in the Advisory practice, it's all about the revenue you are bringing into the firm. With the acquisition of bearing point, the consulting business is run by the numbers, not by the people being viewed as assets.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to retain top talent, reward them, promote them and let them be successful.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
