    Bureaucratic audit factory where people too nice and too smart slave away for the sake of a qualification...

    Pros

    Reputation. No arguments on them being a level above the other big 4s.

    Sexy list of big name clients.

    Robust training. You learn a lot indeed, in the classroom and the audit room.

    Job security once you are qualified as accountants are constantly in demand for mid to high level financial controller, management accounts or management role.

    Cons

    No room for faltering or slow learners. Must deliver constantly.

    No say on which clients you will get on. Resourcing basically puts you on whoever they feel like when you join the firm and its very likely you will not be able to get off them all three freaking years.

    Ridiculous pay structure. Some will be working easy hours as RAS associates, whilst the poor sods who've managed to get themselves on Group audits will be working away until 2 am for weeks fighting the constant urge to reach for the razor and painkillers in their bottom drawer. None of this makes a difference as you are not paid for overtime and the pay is standardised per level. Some half decent managers will offer days off in lieu of overtime but whats a few extra holidays when you are skint as a potato sack.

    The most boring, dry, petty, repetitive kind of work. May I add it will probably only get worse once you enter industry (which you most likely will as one has a higher chance of passing out a bladder stone without surgery and finding it to be a diamond than securing a manager role within PwC). So a perfect place for some business school grad with no creative talents who is wetting his pants in the face of the global downturn. But for others who are using it as a stop over to set up a fall back net, it will do.
