Manager, U.S. corporate tax (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 19 May 2018
Overall PwC is a great place to work with. You can stay current with the most recent developments in your field. The firm did not spare the money in training. The downside is a lot of overtime and the lack of work-life balance
Very great experience. Amazing time making new connections, great free dinners when you work late, free taxi

Tax Assembly Clerk (Former Employee) – York Region – 26 January 2018
I have worked at three different locations for PwC, and at each one I have met and connected with dozens of people who were unyieldingly kind, helpful, and generous. No matter where you go, you will find wonderful people working at PwC.
One of the top employers of the world. There is immense job security in the Big4 firms. There is a clear path of career growth which is well defined and followed by the firm. The remuneration paid by the Big4s are mostly fair. Management are friendly as the activities are mostly team related. The staff is well educated and supportive. A slight issue arises when in Big4s when it comes to work life balance as most of the Big4 employee find it hard to manage work requirement with family.
ASSOCIATE, ASSURANCE (CO-OP) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 December 2017
Long hours are expected out of assurance. Hardest part of the job is maintaining work-life balance. Work culture and environment depends upon the office you work in and the teams you work with. If your coach and manager are good, you'll be successful.
Great employee events (Christmas parties, new hire parties, CFE-write party etc)
Excellent benefits and work/life balance however compensation and advancement is not a focus
Manager, Consulting (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 November 2017
Excellent place to begin your career and develop core skills. Excellent opportunity to work across industries. PwC encourages mobility and placing personnel on secondment as well so if you would like to travel and work PwC will enable you to do both.

Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, Canada – 26 October 2017
PwC manages to have a great culture that is driven by an excellent peer group. That being said, the work itself at the firm is quite mundane and combined with the long hours and low pay, makes it a sometimes difficult sell as a career option
