Great at the beginning, then you burn out

PwC is a wonderful place to start your career, young and energized. The more busy seasons you work, the more stressed and burnt out you become. The unfortunate part is that some people have fantastic experiences and work-life balance while others are unlucky and are stuck in a place where it feels like busy season all year round. In the end, if you can put in the work and time early on, do it. Get the experience and leave.

Associate (Former Employee) - JB, Malaysia
Great place to start and develop your career but the compensation could be better for the number of hours required. A typical day at work involves finding out where your assigned for the week/day, and then plan your work according the time allocated. A great deal of independence is expected and you will be expected to be able to find yourself useful quickly to avoid getting a bad review at the end of the performance evaluating year.
Pros
Career development
Cons
Poor remuneration and long work hours

Assurance Executive (Former Employee) - Kuala Lumpur
Training is given at the start so even with no experience, you can feel more assured before going to client's office. Plenty of friendly people. Need to work hard as you are expected to have exhausted all resources before going to the senior/manager for help.
Pros
Claimable expenses for transport
Cons
Hectic hours depending on department
