    Pros

    Great formal training. Truly at the top of the profession. Innovator in the industry.

    Cons

    Compensation is poor for the amount of hours worked (working 80 hours per week at a $70K salary level is ridiculous). Lateral transfers between departments is virtually impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Raise compensation to match hours worked. Bonuses should be larger than gift cards.

    Pros

    We work long hours, especially during busy season, which makes it hard to make personal plans. The pay is low compared to private accounting.

    Cons

    The benefits are amazing. The learning curve is really high. The more years you spend at PwC, the more valuable you become.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in your associate's shoes. Don't forget that we do the bulk of the work and that one day you were an associate as well. .
