Ability to do meaningful work and work with very talented employees, management and executives. My opinion and data analytics were appreciated when making data driven decision making.
excellent travel support in major cities
Very competitive work environment and culture
Career progression is extremely slow and arbitrary. Compensation is hardly tied to skills and effort. Management is often an inconvenience and misuses resources, unable to even remotely understand the projects they are allegedly managing. Ideas to make operations more efficient are frequently ignored as management self-assuredly causes delays which lower staff must work to resolve over their weekends.
It was a pleasure to work there and I may have had a career lifelong but I just couldn’t move to Tampa given my circumstances. The focus of the group changed and its IT headquarters was moved to Tampa. But whilst there it was a lovely job and everyday was challenging and fulfilling. Sounds like a dream but it was not. Tampa to me was not an option.
Spent 16 years at PwC, promoted from Senior Associate to Managing Director over that period. I created a path for each promotion - it wasn't just given to me. If you want to be part of a hard driving, high performance culture, and can navigate lots of politics, its a good place for you.
The management provides the interns with a lot of guidance and tries to give them as much exposure to higher-level partners and projects. The interns are included in team gatherings and on projects, the senior people really take the time to help you learn and understand. It was a great experience but being a part of the deals team meant that hours could be long and unpredictable for indefinite periods of time. Comes with the territory. They really look to offer their interns jobs, just come to work ready to learn and do your best to hold your own. Effort is appreciated even if you don't always know what to do!
I worked there in the early 1990's so I am sure it is quite different now. Very good benefits, nice offices, top notch employees. My boss was great but he got assigned to a major project just when I was hired so he was not able to support any clients I brought to him. Without him, I was unable to get new business very easily.
PwC remains a great place to work straight out of school. Plenty of hours you can work and things you can learn. Culture is pretty bad, no one is very happy to work there until you are on top as a partner. Hours are hard and don't line up with what you are paid. If you are on a good team then work is nice, but more often you are with people that are tough to work 60-80 hour weeks with when things get busy. Glad I tried this out, but it wasn't for me and I don't want to work here again.
