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.

Let me OUT!
Event Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 September 2012
Worked in the L&D department. Contract job. Seems to be a lot of contract jobs and not enough perm.

I was micro managed. Trained by a young rude person. Left the job after 6 weeks.

It all depends on who your manager is. I hear others are happy in different departments.
Pros
good pay
Cons
poor management

Stage - Analyste (Former Employee) –  Québec City, QC9 June 2014
Mon expérience chez PwC m'a permis de comprendre ce qu'est réellement la tâche d'un technicien comptable. J'ai dû compléter des missions de compilations, contribuer à compléter des missions d'examens et faire l'impôt des sociétés de plusieurs entreprises.

PwC m'a permis de développer certains éléments que j'ai appris dans ma formation dans mon milieu de travail pour pouvoir améliorer grandement mon rendement à la tâche.
