    Working with the best of the best. Great mentoring. Great place to learn skills and get experience with top clients

    Limited growth potential after awhile. It's easy to progress, but more challenging to grow after a certain point. It's a big firm and there are lots of opportunities for exploration and development, but it's still a big company. Like other big companies, it's sometimes burdened by its size

    None. Great firm.

    I worked at PwC as an intern

    Pros

    Meaningful work, collaborative teams, and reasonable hours are just a few positives to working at PwC. They treat their interns really well, and ensure that you are having a good experience with weekly mentor meetings.

    Cons

    My team worked remotely so we barely got any client facing time. It was frustrating because it was harder to get real experience when having to work at the PwC building.

    Advice to Management

    If the work cannot be delegated, it would be nice to observe to get a better idea of how to complete the work in the future.
