Internship in Auit Department (Former Employee), Warsaw – April 5, 2013
Pros: sometimes free luch at the client
Cons: work under pressure of time
My typical day at PwC started at 8.30 A.M. and finished at 6:30 P.M. I was working on financial statements of five big companies during my internship. My official language at work was Polish and English. I was responsible for some sections and audit tests valued in milions of euros. Although I was a student, the firm gave me opportunity to do some parts – more... of work, taht required a lot of knowledge, because I was familiar with audit. To my duties (exept of pure audit) was contacting the client and I was appreciated by co-workers for my professional attitude and work ethics. I was in very good relations with my superiors and they highly valued my doing.The hardest part of job was looking for solutions in short time and I was really good in this point. I could do research and all necessary stuff quick work done before the deadline.I also didn't hesitate to ask if I needed. I appreciate the grade of responsibility the co-workers gave me and the fact I was able to cope with all obligations I had. – less

Advisory Manager (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – March 23, 2013
Pros: dynamic work environment, people, coaching, growth opportunity, flexibility
Cons: long hours, travel
PwC's Advisory is a fantastic place to grow with an almost universally impressive group of people to work with. I expect a group of consultants to be smart, but have been most amazed at the degree of character that is built into the culture here. The coaching, teaming, opportunities for development, and the core character of the people here is beyond – more... precedent. The team really gets the concept of ethical relationships with clients.
My only negatives with the company relate to Management Consulting in general - it's a tough life with lots of travel and little consistency/certainty, which makes it a difficult job for some family men. – less
