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
Great place to work to meet smart people. The networking benefits are great. Compensation is very good. Work life balance is not good. No autonomy in making career decisions.
Smart people, good compensation and benefits
Work life balance is not great, no autonomy
Extremely tough environment to work in which values perfection and elitism but cares for its community. Many long hours happy hours and community events for all.
Great place to work. More contractors than employees. Will give alot of responsibilities and chances to learn new skills. Can only work in one department for a max of two years as a contractor unless hired as full time employee
Relaxed working environment
Little chance of being hired
Great company, highly recommend. All associates work hard, but have fun too. It's important to build relationships and understand the structure and dynamic of the groups. Always have the ability to move internally and continuously meet new people and build new skills.
Pros: 1. Good experience comes quickly 2. Working with many people/great connections 3. Work on big name clients 4. Lots of work events/trainings/conferences. PwC invests $ in its people. 5. Flexibility to work from home and come in earlier/later depending on the engagement team Cons: 1. Client serving, therefore always trying to please clients 2. Work under tight deadlines with the expectation of putting work deadlines above personal plans/events 3. Pressure to over-perform and work on several engagements, each with a different team, simultaneously 4. Busy season with approximately 70-85 hour work weeks
PwC is a massive company and while the people, culture, and benefits and perks are phenomenal (health/dental, 401K matching, preventative checkups, life insurance, vacation policy...I could go on..) this job (especially in advisory) is what you make of it. YOU will be fully responsible for your career and you will get as much out of it as you put in. So that means you will be expected to do amazing client work and manage your career (at the same time). Which means you likely won't be promoted on merit alone (if your heads down and doing your work all the time you aren't doing it right). So, if your client is amazing (yay!) or if your client is awful you will still be expected to really time manage the heck out of your life to do it RIGHT. That's not to say that you can't take sickkkk vacations with all the miles and hotel points that you rack up while traveling to client sites each week (you can!), but you will really need hone your time management skills to get this down to a science. To do it RIGHT, in addition to your "day job" you have to find a great manager/director/partner to latch on to and involve yourself in business development initiatives (think extracurriculars like writing white papers, or writing proposals), form or join a community to focus on specific topics e.g. "Data Analytics", Digital Finance, etc.) or create/conduct training on key topics of interest among other things. BUT, in addition to that, you also need to make sure every partner/director/HR who has ANY hand in the promotion process knows who you are and what you are looking to accomplish - more...
I had a positive experience at PwC, working on complex transactions a lot of team knowledge sharing. The typical work day can vary depending the phase of the project. You have to be willing to adjust to an unpredictable work life balance.
I recommend anyone to apply and if offered to take a position here. I hope one day to work there again. There was the occasional "bad apple" employee or manager but that could be the same anywhere else. Free coffee and they are usually located in a convenient spot. The work was steadily paced and even when it was busy it was manageable.
