Great people, great work mostly, and excellent support. Need to remember that it is a business driven by revenues. Long-term, one needs to align what they do with how the firm makes money.

I've been at PwC for almost 9 years, beginning at Sr Associate. At the top leadership level, the firm has done a really great job at showing it cares for its people - D&I initiatives, learning and development commitments, etc... Your experience at the firm will mostly be tied to your individual group and mostly the groups culture. If your career goal is program management, PwC does a really great job giving you the tools needed to succeed. If it's something else, I think the firm has a long ways to go to catch up to the industry. The firm also has ample red tape, limiting and drastically slowing down how we do business
Pros
Work life balance (to an extent), access to learning opportunities
Cons
Healthcare benefits are pretty terrible, substantial red tape

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.
Pros
Vast opportunities for learning and exposure to amazing clients
Cons
Clique culture - only your numbers count

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.
Pros
good for resume, excellent for learning
Cons
No work life balance, compensation not competitive, High deductible medical benefits

A lot of emphasis is given in values of firm and how can we deliver best quality to the clients. Workforce is full with young employees and has lot of energy. Its a fun place where people are very collaborative and supportive of each other's growth. Lot of learning and development opportunities are available for employees to upskill themselves.

Overall very good company to work for with smart people, great clients, solid pay and benefits. The part of the organization where I was employed did not live up to the top tier reputation PwC enjoys in other parts of their business. It was a sales oriented role and managers actually attached themselves to deals they did not work. While flexible and competitive, the culture of my group was ineffective at retaining good people. Since I left, there had been reorganization within this part of the organization.
Pros
Smart people, great clients, solid pay and benefits, flexibility, well respected in the market
Cons
Clickish leadership, lack of team culture

as with all large organisations there is a hierarchy and a set of behaviours required to succeed here, but if you do it is a great place to work and develop your career

Good company to work at but even with year on year profits it will reduce employee headcount when chips are down even for a small period./............

A typical day is mostly spent on solving clients' critical issues and working with the team. An inclusive culture is very important where people are rewarded based on the merit. The hardest part of the job is traveling however that's the nature of the beast. Enjoyable part of the job is also traveling and getting to meet people from all over the world.

Breaking news, it's a big business! Lot's of positive and fewer negative experiences for me.....a lot driven by the individual you work for. I was fortunate enough to be invested in by the firm in terms of my personal development on numerous occasions and worked internationally with some great people. The annual appraisal process is far too cumbersome and often results in outcomes for individuals that are demotivating. There was an undercurrent that it was all about the seniority of those representing you in the process rather than the achievements that counted more.

Long hours, no real leadership, direction is not clear.

PwC is similar to the other Big 4 Firms with very long hours, tons of metrics and intense competition between very smart people. The most difficult aspect of the job was the abundance of metrics (more than 22).
