Great place to start your career out of college. You will be challenged every day, but you will also learn a lot along the way. Lots of young and smart people to work with.
smart people, fast paced, quick progression up the ladder
no work life balance, multiple competing priorities all year long
The only good thing about PwC is that it looks good on your resume and you will like your team (Hopefully) but that is the luck of the draw. Overall the company does not care about you as an individual and you are a cog in a machine to them and extremely replaceable.
PwC is sleeping on its past brand power. Ideals and vision are world-class, but groupthink, us vs. them, and friendship nepotism make it hard for newcomers to become part of a clique. There are a handful of exemptions to this rule. It is a machine where YOUR numbers are the only thing that matters.Vast opportunities for learning and exposure to amazing clients.
Vast opportunities for learning and exposure to amazing clients
Clique culture - only your numbers count
getting onto good projects is all about who you know, and if the work you want to do isn’t selling, then you might feel as though your development is stalling. the business is 100% focused on the client and sometimes that takes away from focus on your career personally. overall wonderful place to build your career and grow as a well rounded, agile employee.
learning, good ceo, leader in employee development
development in areas of interest, pay
The firm pays well and provides a lot of training. There are many opportunities to earn recognition and bonuses. The leadership at the top can do no wrong though even when there are obvious toxins squatting in those roles. Upward mobility is a popularity contest.
Pay, time off
if you work with good team, you can stick around for many years. but if you work with bad team, you probably want to get out ASAP.Deployment can be very political. if you are the favored child, you will have higher chance of getting on better projects
Not sure I’d recommend working within the comms function. Lots of turnover, leaders are cliquey and difficult and they’ve put Tax professionals in charge of communications. monotonous and Not very rewarding.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Pros:- Exposure to leadership within impactful industries such as C Suite- Opportunity to learn quickly and grow fast in careerCons:- Not the best work/life balance- Extensive travel, not much input on which projects staffed on
Salary was good, but management was untrustworthy and arrogant. Don’t expect a long term relationship.
PwC offered incentive pay so compensation was good. Personnel from Manager to Senior were solid people. Unfortunately, higher management were arrogant, rude and untrustworthy. PwC will misrepresent a project’s length and your job security. PwC poorly treats contractors.
Experience is good for your resume. Some good people.
Failure of communications from upper management that could be deemed misrepresentations.
great work culture but longer hours than most. you would need to have strong discipline to find out. Flip side is PwC is a big, multinational. You'll get better gigs there, but won't make as much, and have more competition as you up-rung the ladder towards promotional opportunities.
Good place to start a career; lots of opportunity for development, variety of work, etc. Culture largely depends on your specific line of service, office, and team. Pay starts relatively low for associates but ramps quickly once promoted in 2-3 years.
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.
good for resume, excellent for learning
No work life balance, compensation not competitive, High deductible medical benefits
PwC is a wonderful place to start your career, young and energized. The more busy seasons you work, the more stressed and burnt out you become. The unfortunate part is that some people have fantastic experiences and work-life balance while others are unlucky and are stuck in a place where it feels like busy season all year round. In the end, if you can put in the work and time early on, do it. Get the experience and leave.
Free phone, "unlimited" sick days, flexible schedule
Work-life balance does not exist, you're just another number
