    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)


    - The sky is the limit. It is an "up or out" mentality and they bend over backwards to make sure it is mostly up, rather than out. - Training opportunities. It is an incredible place to start your career in the business world. Sets you up for a guaranteed successful future, whether you end up here long term or move your talents elsewhere. - Pay starts out just okay, but once you hit manager in 4-5 years, the pay is more than good and raises every year are pretty amazing. Not too difficult to get both a 10% raise and 10% bonus every single year. - Flexibility. Sure you work long hours some time, but you have plenty of opportunities to take off early or work from home.


    - Trying to hit enough chargeable hours while also staying on budget

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).


    Behavioral Interview with extremely nice group of people. Be personable and make sure PwC is a good fit for you before accepting. There is not a whole lot you can do to prepare other than being confident in your abilities and confident that PwC is a good place with you for a good reason. Beyond that, be comfortable with travellng and open to learning.
