flexible hours, decent perks, cool team mates, but they'll kick you to the curb when it suits them. Don't buy their bulls**t about caring about people. It's the little people that suffer when times get tough.
Points positifs
flexible hours, nice downtown office
Points négatifs
they'll stab you in the back at the earliest opportunity

Overall PwC is a nice place to work if you love what you do, and you are ready to put in hours day in day out. However, do not expect much in promotions especially if you do not have partners support.
Points positifs
Exceptional training, Travel Opportunities, Personal Growth, Collaborative Environment
Points négatifs
Too much bureaucracy, Favouritism over merit in most cases especially promotions, Long working hours with no overtime, Bonus below minimum wage for the hours you put in, Transfer opps between different LoS reduced, Loads of experienced hires being sucked into the firm.

Great to start your accounting career with lots of opportunities to grow and learn, great benefits. You also get to work with a group of bright accounting professionals and have fun (when you can).
Expect to work long hours and weekends.

The culture is extremely aggressive, cutthroat and abrasive which create opportunities for bullying.

In order for the employee to be assigned work, they must be " liked" by their managers. Be careful not to step over, your managers' humongous egos, they would make sure to make your life a nightmare. Your days will be filled with yelling, manipulation, humiliation and the likes.


My Team was a pale imitation of High school mean girls. Only sharp politicians succeed in this company. You need to fake it and fake it and fake it some more to advance.


There are too many level of reviewers and each reviewer has of course their opinions of how they want your work to be presented. Try to please a bunch of folks , who only feel valued and alive because they are in a position of management at a big 4. Tell me how that goes! :)



Good look on the resume admittedly , However is it worth the peace of mind? I would let you be the judge of that :)

As one of the Big Four public accounting firms, PwC is a great place to build your career from scratch. Challenging environment both mentally and physically and you do learn a lot in this environment with many other over-achiever. After 2-3 years, more than half of the employees choose to quit due to the lack of work-life balance etc.

More advancement for the talkers than for the ones doing the actual work. Poor work-life balance so more suited for new college grads as the demands on time during and outside of work hours are ridiculous.

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.
Points positifs
LEarning opportunities
Points négatifs

Working at a professional accounting and services firm can get a bad rap. Yes, you are going to be working long hours and, yes, it's often going to seem like the work you're doing isn't taken seriously by some of your clients, especially in an audit capacity.

However, the skills you develop and the people you meet can have a lasting impact on your career. You will be exposed to financial managers from many types of businesses and can form some strong bonds with both clients and coworkers. This can lead to building a great professional network. And really, the relationships you form during your career will help propel you upwards much faster.


Further, you are thrust into positions where you have to think, and work, quickly and on your feet. You are expected to manage other staff within 18-24 months of starting at the firm. It also gives you a true respect for what hard work is, and forces you to critically think. Not only about your current tasks, but how they fit into the big picture of your entire projects.


I feel that starting my career at PwC has helped me advance my career much faster than if I had worked somewhere outside of a Big 4 accounting firm.
Points positifs
Development of important skills, a professional network, engaging and fun coworkers. Helps to build necessary skills to start your career
Points négatifs
Long Hours, Lack of accolades for work completed

Good work for career growth at the expense of personal life.
Salary is good for big 4 but not comparable to industry.

Good benefits, culture depends on department to department.

Great company to work for if you're driven and competitive. Expectations are high, but consideration is given when it comes to personal commitments and health. Achievements are recognised, but mistakes are not well tolerated.

Diversity in working styles and thinking styles is encouraged on the surface, but the culture does not reflect this. However, this depends greatly on the people you work with. The org structure is quite fluid so you need to be ready to adapt quickly.

- A typical day at work involves managing engagement teams of up to 7 people for audit, review, and special engagements for public and private clients in a variety of industries as well as developing and proposed resolutions to complex accounting issues

- I have learnt how to budget the management process from preparation to engagement budget tracking, as well as proposing ways to increase efficiencies


- Management teams at PwC consists of highly competent and friendly staff who promote open communication while holding the teams accountable for their deliverables


- The workplace culture is work hard, play hard!


- The hardest part of the job would be managing multiple deliverables for several clients at the same time wile working with tight deadlines. However, I have learnt so much over the years on how to ensure deliverables are submitted within the deadlines and produced in the most efficient manner.


- The most enjoyable part of the job for me would be the people and all the connections I have made throughout the years.

Provide plenty of coaching and training opportunities. Work life balance does not exist during busy season, or if you are on a big client. Expectations are too high and too unrealistic, given the tight deadline and shortage of staff. Will have a good client portfolio and able to work on large well known clients. Salary is low compared to industry accountants.

As with the other big 4 firms, PwC heavily invests in its staff whether it be on a professional development level or a coaching level. The culture is fantastic with a very diverse range of people and skills.
