    Pros

    Best reasons to work in PwC is to have personal growth, a lot of training and challenging environment in a professional manner.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of PwC Turkey are that You have a lot of clients at the same time. In terms of clients, deadlines and unacknowledged accounting staff, you have to face a lot of issues and propose a lot of adjustment of the financial statement of Client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can say, it would be great that the Company would try to affect and be more initiative roles in the new regulation of audit in Turkey

    I have been working at PwC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    PwC provides the best work experience in public accounting. The employees and clients you work with, even as an intern, provide an amazing learning opportunity not found elsewhere. You are constantly challenged with different work and exposed to different situations so that you are always learning and advancing. Overall, PwC is a great company to work for coming out of college. Their focus on learning and flexibility creates a great place to start a career.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be tough in public accounting, but this is only a minor challenge at PwC because teams are flexible you can work around any conflicts you may have.
