PwC offers an excellent environment where employees can expand their skills and experience. The firm places high value of core principles such as knowledge sharing, equal opportunities, and career advancement.

SENIOR MANAGER (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 May 2017
I am in a new role at PwC, that mirrors such roles being created across the industry. Finance and risk must now work together to assess an institution's financial position, with the new accounting standard IFRS9. This is a great place to learn about the standard and the impact to the industry.

Tax, Associate (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 20 April 2017
Overall people are nice and managers do teach you, nevertheless there are still some top management that like to overwork you with their micro managing. People are overall nice but the most you can last in this job is about 2 years after that the workload just gets to you.
Excellent work scope but they don't have enough desks to have you seated!
Tax data specialist (Current Employee) – London, ON – 5 April 2017
Overall good but admin, management and technical team do not work in coordinated way, in which case your work performance will not be evaluated perfectly. Also, in London Ontario, they don't even have enough seating facility so you will be confined into a training room with no proper working desk at all.
Assurance 1 Instructor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 April 2017
The best part about working at PwC was the people I worked with. There were people that had come from different parts of Canada and the rest of the world which provided a very diverse workplace. The employees are also very driven which provided a great deal of motivation.
Experienced Senior Associate, Assurance (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 March 2017
Great learning environment for accountants pursuing their CPA/CA. Challenging work, 100% group-based projects. Lighter work load in the summer preparing for Dec 31 audits, very heavy from Jan - April (60-80 hour weeks).
The Worst Company - Extremley Low Pay - Poor management
Tax Process Specialist (Former Employee) – London, ON – 20 March 2017
As much as I liked the job, the environment was one of the worst places, where negativity exists in every corner. Staff are in control of the entire situation. Some staff are unprofessional and swearing all the time at each other, which makes it really distracting to work around your team. Management does not care about the attitude of the employee.
They provide extensive training for three weeks with minimum practice. Yet, they judge you for making a small mistake, meanwhile their manuals are not written correctly and missing a lot of important information.
Appreciation is given to their favorite people, which creates a lot of conflict between other staff.
Salary is way too low for experienced / educated people. You would neglect this part if you feel you are a part of the team and welcomed in the company.
My advise to you, RUN AWAY as soon as you feel all of the above.
Experienced Senior Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 March 2017
productivity and fun workplace, colleagues are all nice to work with. Peak season is pretty intensive and usually with a lot pressure of finishing audit before deadline, but for the other time the job is good.
