    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Career development- week long trainings once a year
    Many opportunities for advancement- if you stick it out and play by their rules, you can be at Senior Manager within 8-9 years
    Great name recognition- resume gold!

    Cons

    Hours- very unpredictable and you are at the mercy of your manager
    People- everyone here is arrogant. If you are a reasonable, down to earth person, you will not last long
    Work-life balance- they preach about work life balance but never make it attainable. Will book you on jobs months in advance so you can't take vacation


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

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Cons 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 Management

    Reduce 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.
