Poor Management, understaffed and overworked.
Senior Associate, Assurance (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB19 août 2019
PwC is not a great place to start off your career. You will be belittled and made to feel as if you are a worthless piece of garbage. You will receive extraordinarily low pay for the long hours that are required of this job. I worked for PwC for 4 years and have my CPA designation yet I don't know of anybody who was paid the same as or lower than I was - including new graduates and entry level postion workers. Further, everything is hidden from employees including performance assessments and reasons for bonuses and promotions. This is because the majority of the time employees are rewarded for who they know and not how they contribute - although there are a few standout employees who occasionally will receive the praise they deserve.


The more work you accomplish, the more gets put onto you until you reach a point where you are punished because you can no longer finish all of your own work, the work of your managers, and at the same time assist your associates. There is a reason why the firm has very high turnover rates and that most people leave before completing 4 years. In addition to this, there is an issue at the company of retaining high performing staff which results in the promotion of incompetent individuals to manager positions.

The only enjoyable part of this job are attending the company social events where you will often be rewarded with one or two free beverages.

Okay company
Administrative Services (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB11 mars 2019
Wasn't the best place for me as it didn't challenge me enough. Little opportunity for advancement or didn't even interview you for a different position. The people were great though.

Good for your resume
Senior Associate (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB20 août 2018
Overall PwC is a good start into the work force, you will appreciate the learning opportunities in the first years and and the learning never stops. Office politics can make it difficult to advance at a certain point. Work/life balance during busy season is virtually non-existent.

Fast-paced working environment with room to growth however very limited work-life balance
Experienced Senior Associate (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB14 août 2018
The job has a steep learning curve and definitely has a lot of room for growth. However, the long audit hours and high stress environment are definitely a burden.

Alright
Assurance Associate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB18 octobre 2017
Great perks if you enjoy accounting but wasn't for me in the end. I decided to get out of the audit world and gravitate towards sales and marketing. Would recommend if you enjoy numbers.

Poor Culture
Operations Facilities Manager (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB10 septembre 2017
Work life balance non existent and bad behaviour is rewarded. If you are not part of the "in crowd" you were pretty much on your own. They tend to focus on image more than anything else.

Associate in Assurance
Experienced Associate - Assurance (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB10 septembre 2017
Experience within the firm is heavily influenced by the teams that you are on - if you are on a team with poor management or incompetent team members it is unlikely that your experience will be good. Vice versa - if your main team(s) are good (and you enjoy the work being done) it is possible to have an extremely good experience. Work hours also follow this logic. Some teams worked approximately 80 hours a week during busy season while others barely met the 50 hour a week minimum. Very accommodating as you are allowed to work from home or other locations if needed. There are many opportunities for career and personal development if you take the initiative to seek them out, and as a whole the firm is quite supportive.
