Don't waste your time. Look elsewhere
September 2014 | Current Employee


Uppers

The partners travel often, so they are not in the office. Hoteling is common.


Downers

Bonuses are weak. Who wants to have dinner with the partners as a reward when we've been spending some much time at work. No control over your projects. The partners will put you anywhere they want to make sure you are working. Lots of ineffective managers everywhere in the firm, because the partners are too busy and not around to notice. Long hours. The partners all band together for one cause, they convince themselves until they themselves believe in their cause, even when it doesn't make sense. The partners will create all those committees and projects to fool staff in believing it's the staff's voice, when all it is is just a project to create an illusion.


Comments

Come into the firm as a manager or higher so that you have people to delegate to, otherwise they just burn you out.

Flexibility, working reduced hours from home

As with all accounting firms ... the busy season.


Comments

My son is interested in pursuing a degree in accounting and already plans to work for PwC. He understands that if you work very hard and perform well for the first six to seven years that the firm is very willing to make accomodations for you (such as reduced schedules and telecommuting) as your personal life changes.

It is tax accounting.


Comments

Everything worth having in life is earned. If you feel differently, public accounting might not be the field for you.
