Little room for creativity
Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS21 May 2015
There is a lot of Red Tape in terms of processes with PWC which leaves little room for creativity and a flat work culture. The staff seems to be segregated depending on which division you are in, but most are friendly.

Challenging workplace
Tax Accountant PCS - IS (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 May 2015
PwC is a challenging workplace. Being a team player, as well as being able to meet the deadlines, and to also manage the workload with understating that there have to be a balance between work and personal life.

Edmonton office
Senior Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton11 February 2015
The Edmonton office is still working in a culture from the 70 and 80's . Many of the partners are close to retirement and not ready for change . If you are planning on working here be prepared to work a lot of overtime during peak seasons with no extra pay

Long hours, cookie cutter approach, management cliques
Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 January 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.

Only worked here for less than a year.
Senior Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 May 2014
I didn't like the culture here or the team a lot so I didn't remain too long when another opportunity came up. Was concerned with working weekends without pay or lieu time so I moved on.
