Great place to launch your career as a professional
Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 October 2018
Great place to work, amazing opportunities to learn and develop business acumen and leadership skills. Work culture is far by one of the best and as is the work life balance. Although there will be some days that you will have to put in extra hours but all in all work life balance is great.
Pros
Networking opportunities

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.

Actuarial Consultant
Actuarial Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 September 2018
Friendly working environment but being in consulting eats up your study time. It's a pretty fast paced environment so time management is crucial (at least during financial reporting deadlines).

Director (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 September 2018
Most of the people are nice to work with, spend a lot of time together. Summers are better but good old busy season still kills the spirit. Not really any different from any of the other firms.

Alright
Tax Professional (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 September 2018
Not horrible but not great. Management is slightly confused on their roles and it makes for confusion throughout office. Good benefits but poor salary. "Equal" pay isn't really a thing either

Experience
Trainee, Audit and Tax Advisory (Former Employee) –  Kuwait1 September 2018
While I am highly grateful for the experience I gained while working at PwC as well as the few very helpful colleagues I had, it was not the easiest place to work in. This refers to any office politics and favoritism on behalf of upper management. Additionally, while I managed the work life balance well, this company is not for someone who wishes to have an equal amount of work and life balance.
Pros
very hands on experience
Cons
very long hours including weekend work

Good for your resume
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 August 2018
Overall PwC is a good start into the work force, you will appreciate the learning opportunities in the first years and and the learning never stops. Office politics can make it difficult to advance at a certain point. Work/life balance during busy season is virtually non-existent.
Pros
LEarning opportunities
Cons

Fast-paced working environment with room to growth however very limited work-life balance
Experienced Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 August 2018
The job has a steep learning curve and definitely has a lot of room for growth. However, the long audit hours and high stress environment are definitely a burden.

Understand what you sign up for
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  London7 August 2018
Landing a position at PwC comes with expectations in terms of project delivery and hours to put into your employment. However, god opportunities are frequent and there is good mentorship. The network is vast and it is up to you to use it based on what you want to accomplish.

Company is more geared towards a younger staff
Partner Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 July 2018
The culture of this place I found to be geared more towards a younger staff. It is also laid out with too many managers and not enough staff. Anything you need, you have to go through quite a few people until your request even gets noticed.
Pros
Nice modern offices
Cons
Top heavy management

Typical CA Firm
Senior Accountant (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB24 July 2018
Articling is never easy. Between the work and studying for the various exams needed to complete the requirements to become a CPA (CA), the hours were long and the pay was poor.

Thankfully, there was a good team environment at PWC where everyone would help each other out to make it through the process.

It was a hard working/hard playing culture.
Pros
Professional Development, Team environment, Lots of Social activities
Cons
Long Hours
