The environment is great for the right person. If you want to be in professional advisory services, it is a tough world but PwC can do a lot better to reconcile the firm's messaging with the reality. There used to be better work life balance but that now only applies if you're in a good group. If not, you will work your tail off with little relief and the firm's messaging almost seems to make it worse. The idea was that the compensation was not as high as other firms because of the WLB incentives but those have close to vanished and now it is a mill of working under more pressure without the increased compensation. I'd say great place to start but if you don't fit in don't force it, go find something else. It is not a firm for everyone especially diverse individuals. The messaging works for those who are in the majority but falls on deaf ears for those who want to believe it truly has a diverse and inclusive approach. It does not and cannot figure out how to do so. So, if you are super corporate and want to work in a large organization that has had much of its personal touch sapped out of it then this is a great environment to gain fantastic experience and to network but do not drink the kool aid.

Well oiled machine, looking for employees who are willing to work long hours for below market pay. A great place for those who are straight out of University, or at Director/ Partner level.
