    Former Employee - Audit Associate in Denver, CO (US)

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

    Pros

    Great training, both formal, and on the job. I learned a lot about IT Audit from the infrastructure and training in place at PwC. I enjoyed most of the people I worked with, and I enjoyed their vacation/paternity leave policies. I also enjoyed working on large clients, gaining enterprise level experience, and learning how to deal with difficult clients.

    Cons

    I didn't enjoy the amount of travel I was required to do my second year. I traveled 50% due to a bad economy in Denver, and having to take on another associate's clients. I didn't know it at the time, but the culture wasn't one that fostered cohesiveness, nor did it focus on client service.

    Former Employee - Senior Associate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - brand name
    - working with the best and brightest
    - great training and coaching opprtunities
    - build solid foundation to launch an accounting career

    Cons

    - underpay considerng the long hours and work weekends
    - elitst mentality
    - poor work life-balance
    - revolving door. Lack of long-term retention programs and career development opprtunities for those not interested in making partners

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to invest in people for longterm and fix the attrition to build a team of experienced accounting professionals. Under the existing model only the partners have solid experience and the rest are mostly young and inexerienced and just assing through.
