Zero experience team leader
Tax Process Specialist - Contract (Former Employee) –  London, ON22 June 2017
Team leader was very immature which made it very hard to any mature employee to find a balance or even security. If the leader(s) didn't appreciate you, you had no chances within the company. For a "successful" company, you would think that they would hire better leaderships. (not the kind that would talk behind your back).
Pros
Great learning experience
Cons
Poor leaderships

SENIOR MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 May 2017
I am in a new role at PwC, that mirrors such roles being created across the industry. Finance and risk must now work together to assess an institution's financial position, with the new accounting standard IFRS9. This is a great place to learn about the standard and the impact to the industry.
Pros
getting a front seat to learn about changes in the FS industry
Cons
cultural change in the industry is a challenge anywhere

Great place of work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB1 May 2017
It is very high paced environment that provides a great experience for multitasking. The team is very nice, approachable and technically strong.

There are a lot of training for the staff which is a great source of learning.

The hours are crazy, there is no time for family or personal life.

Over worked and under paid
Tax, Associate (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON20 April 2017
Overall people are nice and managers do teach you, nevertheless there are still some top management that like to overwork you with their micro managing. People are overall nice but the most you can last in this job is about 2 years after that the workload just gets to you.
Pros
Great learning opportunities, flexible hours
Cons
workload management is not done properly

Its a sweat shop
Senior Administrator, Independence Officer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 April 2017
Its a sweat shop. Work life balance is just words it is not really practiced or expected to be practiced. Popularity not hard work is what makes one successful at this organization.

Excellent work scope but they don't have enough desks to have you seated!
Tax data specialist (Current Employee) –  London, ON5 April 2017
Overall good but admin, management and technical team do not work in coordinated way, in which case your work performance will not be evaluated perfectly. Also, in London Ontario, they don't even have enough seating facility so you will be confined into a training room with no proper working desk at all.

The Worst Company - Extremley Low Pay - Poor management
Tax Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  London, ON20 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.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
all of the above
