Too overwhelming
Team Assistant (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB19 December 2018
The job description was very misleading. I didn’t stay too long (3 months) but left due to stress, being overwhelmed, and being overworked (too many tasks for 1 person). I’ve been the longest employee there in my old role in a while. Short staffed for the TAs and I was doing the work of at least 2 people. Funny since they laid off several TAs before I came but they have hired lots of Associates since I was there.
Pros
Hmmm.... learned some new programs
Cons
overwhelming and too many tasks for 1 person

Excellent local Partners and staff
Partner/Manager Assistant positions (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC13 November 2018
Many decisions were made at the national level from Toronto and Vancouver's work environment and specific situation was not considered. Phasing out Admin Assistants and moving towards "Virtual Assistants so the atmosphere became very unstable. Many AAs feared for their jobs and many jobs were cut.
Pros
Good work/life balance, excellent in-house training programs.
Cons
Decisions were made at the national level.

Unprofessional Assurance Managers at PwC London SDC
Assurance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  London, ON9 November 2018
Assurance Managers at PwC London SDC are highly unprofessional. They don't have experience working in a corporate environment. They'll treat you like they own you. Senior Management is not even bothered to oversee their work. They hired them as technical managers but they act like admin managers. Environment is super political. Managers and Director promotes favoritism. They'll just assign you work and don't provide you any kind of help with that. They don't even know what assurance is. They find excuses to fire you. I WON'T RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO PEOPLE
Pros
None
Cons
Very Long Hours, Unprofessional Managers, No Training, Political Environment, Favoritism

Poor Management of Assurance Department- Unprofessional and Non Skilled Managers - No Growth
Assurance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  London, ON6 November 2018
i am working as an Assurance Supervisor at PwC Canada London SDC. There is no professional growth. Managers usually hire people who are their friends. Salary is super low. If you are diploma holder with 1 or less year of experience, this is a good place to start your career but don't expect that you'll be promoted to a senior position with good salary within 7-8 years. Employee turnover is 92% because of low salary. There is one confusion among people who are doing CPA that they can count working hours towards their CPA hours, this is not the case. CPA Ontario doesn't approve London SDC hours towards CPA as this place is supposed to work on admin stuff related to assurance and tax instead of actual work.
Assurance Managers and Directors don't value the work you do.
Pros
Long Hours - Daily 13 hours minimum or 70 hours/week
Cons
None

Good workplace
Assurance Specialist (Current Employee) –  London, ON20 September 2018
Generally good. Threw new hires in the deep end because there was no time to provide training for a certain new project. That is my only complain. Need to improve their management because ineffective management tends to happen the bigger a company gets.
