Pwc is a dreadful place to work.
Senior Editor/Motion Designer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONFebruary 7, 2014
Never met so many a-holes in my life, especial anyone Manager level or above. Horrible place who reward hard work with contempt and disloyalty. Funny since I left a year and a half ago, there is almost no one left from my group. Even people who for some reason they treated slightly better than most. So typical day was very over loaded I learned nothing, in fact people learned from me, and there was never an enjoyable minute there.
Pros
downtown, until they moved into the awful new building south of the gardner.
Cons
everything

Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABJanuary 12, 2013
Does not value diversity of thought and opinion, the need to be in the good books rather than do great work is prevalent for this company. Not brave or doing anything new or cutting edge.

On the plus side, very well run administration.
