"It is a prestigious company that has plenty of resources and research material available for professional growth. They have well-developed audit methodology, and many talented coworkers who can prepare very well-documented workpaper for easy understanding and review."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"If they want to find a large company to work at, they may use this as a way to reach those companies. But if they just want to later open their own CPA practice, they should get out of this company as soon as possible to establish their local firm experience, because the experience at the Big-4 is suitable for large client companies when local CPA firms tend to have much smaller clients that requires a totally different approach and mentality. If they stay at the Big-4 firm for too long, it will take a lot of time to change to adapt to local CPA firm's style. Then, their time spent and experience obtained at the Big-4 could be a total waste."
What don't you like about working at PwC?
"They do not treat people equally, as they tend to reserve great opportunities to some, but not to the others, so that you have to know the partners well to be protected from being ignored, even if you are very qualified. Also, some managers who could not be promoted to partners could give you a hard time to prevent you from being discovered. Other managers who are too young and do not have enough experience dealing with the outside world, lack management skills that won't be able to make people want to stay under them."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"No comments, since they probably think they are doing well, as they have survived for so long anyhow."
