    Former Employee - Audit Senior Associate in Vancouver, BC
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Highly ambitious people to work among. Most are new graduates so if you have a mature perspective on how to 1. approach your work and deadlines and 2. work professionally in a team environment you will outshine most others. - Great career prospects for BACK OFFICE work- ie. FP&A analyst, Financial Accountant/Analyst.

    Cons

    - Some of your managers are immature and likely never worked elsewhere in their lives- this impacts team dynamic more than anything. - People are more so promoted for their technical skills... which can effect working culture and add to the stigma of needing to work unnecessary long hours, even when there is no work to do... - Below market pay. Don't worry about pay just yet tho, yungins. - DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU WANT FRONT OF HOUSE POSITIONS (e.g. Consultant, Investment Analyst or M&A Associate - you should have tried harder in University). Only a select few individuals are drafted from audit to go here after 3 years at the firm... this about 1-2% of your intake year... and your intake year is already about 1% of applicants that get into the firm. Try harder in school but if you can't, then Big 4 is a great second chance at life. Unfortunately, being in a Cost centre role (ie. accounting) and not in a Profit centre (e.g consulting) is why people feel like they don't add value to society in this field.
