The Worst Company - Extremley Low Pay - Poor management
Tax Process Specialist (Former Employee) – London, ON – 20 March 2017
As much as I liked the job, the environment was one of the worst places, where negativity exists in every corner. Staff are in control of the entire situation. Some staff are unprofessional and swearing all the time at each other, which makes it really distracting to work around your team. Management does not care about the attitude of the employee.
They provide extensive training for three weeks with minimum practice. Yet, they judge you for making a small mistake, meanwhile their manuals are not written correctly and missing a lot of important information.
Appreciation is given to their favorite people, which creates a lot of conflict between other staff.
Salary is way too low for experienced / educated people. You would neglect this part if you feel you are a part of the team and welcomed in the company.
My advise to you, RUN AWAY as soon as you feel all of the above.
Senior Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 December 2016
Working here looks great on your resume but the culture is cut throat, long hours, weekends, travel and the compensation isn't great. It's a good first job to build your resume but not somewhere you want to stay long term, especially if you plan on having a family.
Associate, Tax, Global Mobility Services (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 January 2017
The firm provided tons of advancement opportunities, with supportive colleagues and partners, as such, it was a great place to kick start your career. However, in longer term, there is very little work-life balance and career advancement comes in exchange of this balance.
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 November 2016
Overall I enjoyed my time at PwC. I made some life long friends and I learnt a lot. My only regret is I didn't leave sooner. This is a great place to start a career but it's very easy to get stuck there. It's not a forward thinking organization, especially if you're working in their marketing group. Navigating the bureaucracy is exhausting and it makes difficult to truly be creative.
Experienced Senior Associate, Assurance (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 March 2017
Great learning environment for accountants pursuing their CPA/CA. Challenging work, 100% group-based projects. Lighter work load in the summer preparing for Dec 31 audits, very heavy from Jan - April (60-80 hour weeks).
SENIOR ASSOCIATE, TAX (Former Employee) – Vancouver – 24 November 2016
I loved my time at PwC and met so many wonderful people. Going through the Tax CA program was definitely tough but PwC provided all kinds of support help me pass the UFE. I learned so much working at PwC and think it is a great place to work

SENIOR AUDITOR (Former Employee) – Egypt – 9 December 2016
Routine assignments includes conducting audits and consulting services at clients. obviously one of the best employers in terms of learning and developing. each day you visit a new client, face a new challenge, learn a new cycle, or accounting treatment. The fun part is always meeting new professionals and learning from their diversified experiences.
Experienced Senior Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 March 2017
productivity and fun workplace, colleagues are all nice to work with. Peak season is pretty intensive and usually with a lot pressure of finishing audit before deadline, but for the other time the job is good.
