    I have been working at PwC

    Pros

    offer support for an excellent post graduate qualification. the chartered accountancy qualification is widely regarded the world over and allows you to work in other countries. PwC supports working overseas which greatly was a strong reason for joining.

    Working for PwC gives an excellent start into the business world and builds a strong understanding of finance. It also allows exposure of how to run a successful finance dept because you get the change to watch so many different ones during the course of your career.

    The social side of work is good, because there are a large number of young people.

    Cons

    Working hours can be horrendous. There is frequent dislocation between the message for work life balance and expected working hours. There is also frequent working over weekends. The general quality of staff is poor given that this is a service organisation that is built on the quality of its staff. New ideas are not often accepted by others and there is a good deal of politics played by more senior staff trying to get promoted.
