Great company overall but the London SDC has many issues with management and office politics. Its who you know not what you know that result in promotions.
Co workers, company as a whole, taxi vouchers and meals during overtime
Unqualified managers, popularity contest enviroment
If your priority is a survival job with very limited growth options, this place is for you. The LAC only appeals if you have limited formal education. If you're professionally or career driven, steer clear of the London Acceleration Centre. Save yourself the pain and heartache of working minimum wage with a funny bunch in management.
Long hours, minimal income
The Service Delivery Center (SDC) / Acceleration Center (AC) is not the same as working at PwC in Toronto. There is a clear difference as demonstrated by the title of "specialist" compared to "associate". The type of work performed here is very admin and will not provide you with the experience you expect. There will be no client interaction, you basically perform all the work the other offices do not want to do. The work culture is very toxic with managers giving you their work while they go and chat around the office. The team expects you to work long hours and 60 hours a week yet the pay doesn't reflect the work you do. The structure of this office does not provide many opportunities for growth. Promotion is based on favoritism and the culture is highly political. I only recommend you working here for the "PwC" name however if you want a real career this is not the place.
Free Lunches occasionally
Long hours, poor management, no growth
Overall PwC is a nice place to work if you love what you do, and you are ready to put in hours day in day out. However, do not expect much in promotions especially if you do not have partners support.
Exceptional training, Travel Opportunities, Personal Growth, Collaborative Environment
Too much bureaucracy, Favouritism over merit in most cases especially promotions, Long working hours with no overtime, Bonus below minimum wage for the hours you put in, Transfer opps between different LoS reduced, Loads of experienced hires being sucked into the firm.
PWC, specifically the Service Delivery Centre (SDC) is a great place to get your career moving in the right direction. The environment is team based.
I truly enjoyed my time at PWC but sometimes I found as a temporary employee, I was made to feel kind of as an outsider.The culture should include all

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at PwC?
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.
I am an experienced professional with 4 years of banking experience. This place is good to work with all the leverages we get but poorly managed. You are treated low because you are an associate and only managers are well respected. The work is very base and not at all challenging. The experience will surely boost your resume.
Overtime on weekends
Assurance Managers at PwC London SDC are highly unprofessional. They don't have experience working in a corporate environment. They'll treat you like they own you. Senior Management is not even bothered to oversee their work. They hired them as technical managers but they act like admin managers. Environment is super political. Managers and Director promotes favoritism. They'll just assign you work and don't provide you any kind of help with that. They don't even know what assurance is. They find excuses to fire you. I WON'T RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO PEOPLE
Very Long Hours, Unprofessional Managers, No Training, Political Environment, Favoritism
i am working as an Assurance Supervisor at PwC Canada London SDC. There is no professional growth. Managers usually hire people who are their friends. Salary is super low. If you are diploma holder with 1 or less year of experience, this is a good place to start your career but don't expect that you'll be promoted to a senior position with good salary within 7-8 years. Employee turnover is 92% because of low salary. There is one confusion among people who are doing CPA that they can count working hours towards their CPA hours, this is not the case. CPA Ontario doesn't approve London SDC hours towards CPA as this place is supposed to work on admin stuff related to assurance and tax instead of actual work. Assurance Managers and Directors don't value the work you do.
Long Hours - Daily 13 hours minimum or 70 hours/week
Generally good. Threw new hires in the deep end because there was no time to provide training for a certain new project. That is my only complain. Need to improve their management because ineffective management tends to happen the bigger a company gets.
Landing a position at PwC comes with expectations in terms of project delivery and hours to put into your employment. However, god opportunities are frequent and there is good mentorship. The network is vast and it is up to you to use it based on what you want to accomplish.
