You get to have work from home days and decent vacation days. They have awesome firm closure but when it's the season, it's a lot of work. You can get to do work at home if needed.

Management does not care about growth. You need to agree to be a pawn in order to be promoted. Your career nor your life is not your own. If you don’t oblige to being a human puppet, they will get rid of you.
Pros
Vacation time
Cons
Healthcare, management, unethical

They lie about a lot of benefits that they offer, flexible most of the time, and generally just wouldn’t recommend working for the service delivery center.

Either we have idle time with nothing to do for most of the day or we're required to work long hours and weekends. Great benefits and lots of personal days available - 10. The only problem is the number of break-ins we keep getting reports about, most likely due to the downtown location. Street bums have come in, sat at desks, hid in the phone rooms, walked around the common area. Last summer, a very stressed co-worker had a screaming meltdown, concerned that the break-ins may be from tailgating, but didn't actually see how they got in. Other than the need for better or more security cameras they offer great pay and room for advancement.

You work a lot of hours . The best part about the job is the people you work with. Very diverse (non-management level). From Jan-October you will barely see your family. Benefits are awesome (unlimited sick days, accrue 10hrs/month for vacation. You get the entire July 4th week off. Firm shut down for 1week end of December. High turnover due to pay. Great company to have on your resume.

PWC is not like any other jobs where you get paid hourly just by being on the clock. The firm is production based. the more quality work you can produce the better it is for you as an employe.

Hours are flexible, however they need a new building and better management. There needs to be better growth opportunities. The company needs to value their employees a little more and promote people on their abilities and not who they know.

PwC was a horrible place to work. When I was there supervisors were horrible. They lacked the fundamental skills necessary to build a team. There is no sense of unity at PwC. There is no warm welcome. No one is going to embrace you. No one is going to care about you. There is no sense of loyalty or family at PwC.
Pros
Gain Experience
Cons
Your Work Won't Be Appreciated

I was assigned to various projects. I was able to learn how to maneuver on many software programs. Management was good. The workplace was relaxed. I felt more training was needed. I did enjoy the job while I was there but I found it to be stressful at times and there was no one that could help me out.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
Training was difficult

management sucked, unless you obtain a CPA or similar you will never get further than maybe supervisor at this company. Management changes very often you may have one manager you may like and then get switched to a horrible manager who doesn't like you because you like the color green and they prefer purple. that alone would give them the reason to let you go.

When I was hired, the partners had decided to change tax software in the middle of tax season and provide NO training. This lead to team members working 60+ hours a week. This current tax season, they continued to hire new people and told us the work would come, but it never did. Without the overtime, it is near impossible to support oneself, let alone a family.

advancement is about who you know. also have to be prepared to work very long hours during busy season. Nice part is when you work long hours dinner is provided for free.
