Large Firm with Losts of Opportunities
Client Team Lead (Current Employee), Dallas, TXApril 5, 2014
The firm has multiple lines of service, including Tax.

Busy season involves taking 8 to 9 clients through a set of processes on a compressed schedule. The most challenging part of the job is keeping track of where each client is in the process.

The most enjoyable part of my job I would have to say is the people I work with.

First job out of graduate school
Consultant (Former Employee), Dallas, TXApril 4, 2014
Pros: was able to prove myself in multiple roles
Cons: pwc is good, but moves very slowly
At PwC, I started out writing code to integrate their Oil & Gas accounting system with SAP financials, and running system support. I then become a system SME, and ran a testing initiative to test releases of any ancillary system that fed data to the accounting platform. I then moved to client engagement. I completed the PwC integrated programming school – more... (4 months of training in writing C and building databases and back-end processing jobs) – less

No regard for personal circumstances and obvious favouritism
Article clerk up to Manager (Former Employee), Port Elizabeth, ECApril 1, 2014
Cons: a lot of travelling
PwC has no regard for an employees circumstances when it comes to assigning staff to certain projects for long periods of time. I understand that it is part of the job to travel but to only be home for 3 weeks in a 4 month cycle whilst your wife is far pregnant (having experienced complications during the first pregnancy) is not right.

It is also obvious – more... that there is huge favouritism towards certain staff members especially when the certain staff members become "clicky". Promotions are not dealt with on a person's ability and work experience but merely based on level of qualification, even if a person that does not hold such a qualification is and keeps on performing at a better level than some of the people with the technical qualification. – less

This places makes you feel at home.
Senior Audit Associate (Current Employee), BlantyreMarch 27, 2014
Pros: education opportunities, relationships and job security
Cons: long hours of work and work pressure
. A normal work day involves going out to the client to gather evidence. Back later in the day and extend a little bit for an hour or so
. PwC provides every opportunity to learn and advance in one's career. Education advancement is compulsory and the organisation pays for all the related expenses. It has a comprehensive database for e-learns, education – more... portal e.g. PwC inform, development programs like Mydevelopment and the like
. My co-workers created a conducive environment for me during my early days which helped me to settle as fast as possible
. The hardest part of the job is that, as usual, external auditing is very demanding. From working odd hours to tight schedules and deadline meant that we naturally live under intense pressure.
. The most enjoyable part was the fact that you always feel at home and you are never isolated, – less

A Great Place to Work
Service Delivery & Print Services Manager (Former Employee), Florham Park, NJMarch 25, 2014
From my perspective in internal firm services, PwC is a great place to be. Management was very concerned with developing people, challenging staff with unique work opportunities when possible, etc. Compensation was fair compared to the market but the perks came from the way employees are treated with respect and are able to achieve work/life balance.

I – more... loved working with a group that had a strong sense of community involvement as well. Contributing to charities in the community wasn't just allowed, it was actively promoted. – less

Hardest part of the job
Financial accounting Auditor (Former Employee), Alexandria , EgyptMarch 25, 2014
Pros: learning more how to be able to find mistakes in the financial sheets
Cons: management was that straight
This kind of job is mainly related to audit all the financial sheets and positions in the end of the fiscal year for lots of companies, which means that there is lot of time at work we do not do lot of things as they are empty days, on the other hand we sleep over at work because there is lot of work at the end of each fiscal year.

Overall good company to work in, but frequent management changes cause unrest in work patterns.
Executive Secretary - Assurance (Former Employee), Dubai, DUMarch 25, 2014
Pros: social and supportive work envioremnet.
Cons: frequent change is management
Pwc is a good company to work for. It practices and encourages a multi cultured environment. Co-workers and management are very supportive both professionally and personally. It trains you to work under heavy stress and in the process one enjoys this work environment as you are aware that it is a passing phase or a basic work requirement.
