Pros

You will work with very skilled and talented people on great clients. Thus, it is a great place to learn and to develop as a professional. Flexibility is available for those who are "on top of their game". High performance is rewarded.

New tax staff are encouraged to rotate through various groups and are required to get diverse training. This provides a broad skill set to build upon.

You will attend a national training for a week every year and local trainings and online training is always available if you have the time.

The San Jose office is very oriented toward technology clients and venture capital clients.

Cons

Just the normal stuff you would expect working at a large client service organization -- resource managment issues and quite a bit of admin. Lots of hours at times.

Clearly working for a big four accounting firm is nothing like working for the government. If you are looking for a eight to five job then most of the time this isn't it. Overtime is part of the deal but doesn't have to occur while you are at your desk. Beyond office hours no one really cares if you are at your desk or not. If you get your work done right and on schedule it will show up in your reviews and you'll be rewarded for it.

Advice to Management

The firm has great leadership right now. They could make PwC better by finding innovative ways to improve resource management and streamline adminstrative tasks.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Big Company with a lot of resources and the latest and greatest technology.

    Cons

    Long hours and the good chance of getting lost in the crowd because there are so many employees.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more on-site training and explain the reasons for the way certain work is done.

    Pros

    Great clients, unique problems, lot's of opportunity to learn, and to work with very bright peers. Teams are usually full of hard working and well-performing peers. So many opportunities to be exposed to a wide variety of interesting business problems, and unique solutions. Very respectable organization that justifiably prides itself on the quality of service to clients. Every dollar of expense for our sevices is generally work it.

    Great way to jump into a particular industry (outside of PwC), as a respected and trusted advisor. You can negotiate great offers for yourself once you've spent a number of years working for clients at PwC.

    Cons

    Long hours, hard work, lots of travel.

    Advice to Management

    More open communication.
