Good resume builder
Senior Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 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.

Good place to start your career
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 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.
Pros
They hire great people.
Cons
Conservative management

Good place to start your career
Associate, Tax, Global Mobility Services (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 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.

Professional work environment
Accounts Receivable clerk (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON12 October 2016
friendly fast paced professional work environment. Have to meet daily deadlines and ensure continuous workflow of the department.

I've learned how to continue to apply time management skills to meet daily deadline and coordinate with the team to ensure good work flow of the department

Everyone works as a team when needed to overcome any challenges faced and ultimately meet deadline during the busy season hence producing satisfactory results

Student Recruitment Manager (Former Employee) –  London, UK14 April 2016
My 18 months with PwC UK went from strength to strength and saw many opportunities including a client facing secondment to lead on a graduate recruitment programme as well as being promoted to manager.
Managing two contrasting teams I learnt the importance of listening to the needs of the business and their requirements to ensure my team could work towards these.
My co-workers were fantastic and I helped create a network in the office where people enjoyed the culture.

Dynamic and enthusiastic work environment with a strong culture of excellence
Audit Professional (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 April 2016
A typical day at work during the busy season include long hours, a lot of work and probably, messy audit conference rooms but also comes with a lot of learning. You will be working with smart (ish) and talented people who definitely make the difference in the quality of work as there is a strong culture for doing things right. You will be learning from others through examples, shadowing and constantly coaching. No matters what level you are in the company, you might be seated one-day receiving coaching from a senior manager or a partner, they want to make sure you learn and understand what you are doing as you will actually be seated in the same chair in the future.
The hardest part of the work is that you might have to forget about leaving at 5.00pm sharp on Fridays or dating your girlfriend during the weekend as you will be working extra hours for sure.
Definitely, besides all the tools (software, hardware, documentation, etc) provided to you for the company to develop a quality work in an efficient manner the best part of working at PwC is the people and the learning you won´t get anywhere else.
Pros
Travel open assignments, training, CPA credits, paid dinner, paid milleage.
Cons
Long hours
