Worth iy

Staff Accountant (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at PwC full-time for more than a year

ProsA lot of exposure to various industries, being able to see the operations from beginning to end. Earlier years, you need to put in a lot of hours, but after that you can reap the rewards.

ConsBe good with politics, a lot of people want to get promoted, need to apple polish your supervisors. Take on extra responsibilities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to work if you find yourself in the right group

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at PwC full-time for more than a year

Pros- Young company
- Work with intelligent people
- Fair compensation

ConsI was with the audit group but really wanted to work in the consulting group. I guess I joined the firm at a time when making such a change wasn't as easy as it's been in the past. I hated working in audit and eventually got tired of waiting for something to open up in the consulting group. Recruitment is incredibly slow there too, no one really knows why.
