accounting Job Reviews
Women who work in accounting departments have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.5, 75% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $50k-$80k.
Long hours expected making it hard to have a family. High concentration of women at bottom while mostly men in key leadership positions
Your experience may depend entirely on which part of the organization you work for- some are far more flexible than others.
Great place to work and fexable
The parental leave policy is great, but certain male leaders seem to resent people who take advantage of parental leave (both men and women). If you're a man, you'll be discouraged from taking the full 6 weeks, and if you're a woman they'll downgrade your role on an engagement to something less meaningful (essentially "mommy-tracking" you). Note that I've only seen this in the NY office, and PwC is obviously a big place.
Great company, but they need to work on a healthier work/life balance if they want to keep talented employees.
If you are a working mom, be cautious. Be up front about the flexibility you need. They definitely aren't going to offer it to you, you have to stand up and take it.
The benefits are great, but men are often promoted more quickly because it is a boys club. It is about who you know and many of the men do not take the time to get to know the women.
There are a lot of women in leadership positions at every level of the company.
I was at another firm when I had my kids, but they are very respectful of maternity leave. No paid maternity leave though. A number of women work on flex time schedules. I have flexibility in when and where I work to an extent. I wish there were more female partners.
The firm is extremely flexible. If you have to leave to run to an appointment or work from home, it is perfectly acceptable. However, the hours can be very high during peak tax season.
