One global network, many members

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is the U.S. member firm of PwC, a global network of independent member firms. Today, the PwC network comprises more than 208,000 people in 157 countries and territories. This international group was created in 1998, with the merger of Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand, two accounting and professional services firms that date back to the mid-1800s. Both Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand began in London, and both grew their global presence both organically and through mergers. 

PwC is headquartered in New York and boasts 89 offices across the United States. The firm serves 84 percent of the companies on the Fortune 500-26 percent as an auditor, and 58 percent in other capacities, including consulting. While each member firm operates independently within its own geographic locale, there is a considerable amount of cooperation and networking between them, which enables the global network of firms to work as a global entity and on a local scale. 

Given its sheer size and country coverage, not to mention the independent setup of its member firms, it should come as little surprise that the services PwC offers vary slightly within the global network of firms. However, all services do fall into one of three core PwC lines of service: tax, advisory and assurance.
