    Pros

    -Really nice and talented people to work with
    -Emphasis on diversity
    -Takes care of my cellphone bill

    Cons

    -Never worked on a project that I was interested in although the company promised that they would match interests with demand. It's 95% demand based
    -Really hard to move across practices
    -The annual review process is highly subjective and bureaucratic

  2. A great company but beware of the several (not in general) mean managers and directors

    Pros

    great consulting practice with tools and a lot of space to learn and grow. the company is generous to the employee in terms of sick leave or emergent time-off.

    Cons

    hard to get promoted. unlike other consulting firms, which follow the 2 year promotion rule, it's VERY hard to get promoted in pwc comparing to other consulting firms
    there are some managers and directors who are VERY hard to please and treat people with no respect

    Advice to Management

    really need to go through some practices who have high turnover and see what the management is doing to drive the talents away

  3. Fun time, long hours.

    Pros

    Lets be honest having PwC on your resume is like gold! After that you can go pretty much anywhere in the accounting field.

    Cons

    They work you so hard and the pay is not worth the hours you put in. You do this job for th possibilities not for the pay...

    Advice to Management

    I am noticing a down turn in talent coming through the new classes and for those who are talented a complete abuse of them and their time. People who are abused are unhappy, people who are unhappy leave...

    Pros

    If you are willing to waste your life formatting excel spreadsheets and spend all your evening and weekend hours doing so, they will pay you good money and offer excellent benefits.

    Cons

    The only people who last here are willing to give up their personal lives to do mindless work at all hours of the day.

    Pros

    Great resume builder and experience. If you want to stay in business, especially accounting, you want to start at a Big 4. It will open a lot of doors.

    Cons

    It really depends on your team and superiors. If you have a good team, you will mostly enjoy your experience. If not, you will want to leave, especially during busy seasons.

    Advice to Management

    Better work/life balance, if possible.
