PwC is a good place to start your career and you will learn a lot working here. Experiences can vary greatly depending on which teams and clients you work with. It is a very high pressure environment and burn out is common. I personally don’t consider it sustainable to work here long term, especially given compensation and perks are not great compared to industry standards.

Learning experienced

No work life, high pressure environment

No longer work there. They say there is work life balance but only for select people. They pay you the minimum amount even though you give 100%. Can’t say I recommend working for PwC

The workplace culture allows you exposure to many different businesses and their processes. There is an opportunity to learn a lot, but, there is little work life balance, and work culture provides little time for development.

PwC is one of the few companies which can provide you the opportunity to learn and grow at top clients. You learn all the aspects of a project - Strategy, Design, Implementation and operationlization.

Pretty horizontal organization. Have direct channel of communication with your partner. Promotions are based on performance, which your partner is always on top of.

Participated as an intern. Come in at 9 and leave at 3, learned about tasks a first year associate would do. Good management and people. Hardest part was probably trying to figure out by myself some tasks when someone senior wasn't available, but appreciate all I learned there.

I enjoy collaborating with others and having a fun environment to work in. Work is work; however, it is always nice to enjoy some friendly conversations in between.

Days at PwC were always busy, filled with many projects to manage. It was a fast-paced environment, yet those who focused on honing their analytical skills, maintaining an attention to detail, and keeping the client's perspective in mind were set-up for success and career growth. Work-life fit goals are different for everyone - I sought experiences that would help me grow and provide chances to ready myself for more challenging job opportunities. Work was my focus.
Pros
Health Care Benefits, resources for learning & training, consistent guidelines and standards throughout the organization for all employees
Cons
Work-life fit

Great place to practice your skills. Can help build both soft skills and technical skills. Just need to work a lot, but the nature of the job determines that.

Need to network with the right folks within the firm to get staffed on exciting projects. Mix of exciting and projects that are more operational in nature.

PwC is a great place to go to start your career, and try a wide variety of accounting related tasks. You learn quickly, and are given a lot of opportunities to grow. Of course that comes with a very stressful and competitive work environment. People are constantly bragging about how much they work, and bonuses are largely based on hours worked, not on the quality of your work.
Pros
learning opportunities
Cons
competitive, long hours, working unreasonable hours is rewarded
