    Pros

    You work with a bunch of young people who are really smart and fun.

    Cons

    There has been a visible cost cutting push. The insurance plan I was on was cut and they told us only 4 months before the plan was up. The manager promotion bonus was cut by 20%, and they tried to tell us sneakily by making us click through 3 links before seeing information on the cut. They also cut money for team happy hours and bonding activities.

    Pros

    Flexibility when not busy season and ability to work on handful of different projects if don't get stuck in audit.

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season and disconnect between lower levels and management. Also, tech skills aren't vurd as ugly as expected for this type of job.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility where you can work and IT support. Lots of exposure to new products and people are mostly interesting since they come from various backgrounds and have great subject matter expert knowledge

    Cons

    The company is technologically behind. A few managers and up understanding tech reality, but most of them don't. It makes more tech-savvy people pretty frustrated. The company is also too focused on the short-term profit and not the long term development, which makes innovative analytic problems challenging to seriously develop.

    Advice to Management

    Learn technology. Don't operate so hierarchically. Give more flexibility to development and learning new concepts outside of accounting and audit

    Pros

    Coworkers and supervisors are all highly motivated and hard working. They promote a great team environment and everyone is expected to contribute significantly to the audit.

    Cons

    Constant deadlines mean for late nights at times, especially during "busy season." Work life balance is only possible during your off time.
