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

Pros

Mostly great people work here. If you land an audit job, expect long hours. You may find some of the managers and/or seniors to be not that helpful, or not have enough knowledge, so you may have to do your own research to get the job done. Good learning experience depending on which project you are.

Cons

Long hours.. In busy season, you may be booked to couple or more projects at the same time, and all of them might have same deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    PwC in recent years has tried to stress flexibility but with its emphasis on quality makes it nearly impossible. You know what you are signing up for when you work for big 4 but somehow you always think that it will be as described by the company. The things you hear from personnel in recruiting normally are not true.


  2. "It was a rewarding and stressful experience at the same time."
