I enjoyed my time at PwC, great place to jump start your career and build a strong network of colleagues and clients. I would recommend to anyone just starting out!
Flexibility, intelligent colleagues, fun environment, lots of parties
Too much work during busy season
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
Generally, PwC was a pretty good place to work - I liked the other people and organizations I came into contact with, and the company tried to have engaging activities.
Flexibility and little to no micromanagement
When people leave, the company seldom hires a replacement, all responsibilities are just kept on being added on top of the remaining employees, eventually you are putting multiple additional hours and the salary does not adjust for that.
Good place to work with professional ethics. Work from home is good but sometimes yo miss the collaboration in the office. Travel can sometimes be non-stop.
401K, HSA and Retirement planning
I have worked at PwC for many years. Including their flagship office at More London. Many times, you felt privileged for being part of a forward thinking firm, especially when it came to technology. There are opportunities to work with different lines of service to gain new experiences and skill sets. It was also a joy to work in exquisite modern offices with people from many countries, backgrounds and beliefs.
The financial rewards and benefits are great. You can wear casual attire most of the time.
It is very important to take control of your work and life balance. Look after your well-being.
PwC cares about developing staff and has great official values, especially the D&I focus. They might do more to live the values - there are still very few women in leadership. Constant pivoting of priorities, but the people are truly wonderful throughout the entire org as is the culture.
Focus on developing and progressing you, embrace of new technology
Work-life balance is nonexistent, you WILL burn out
They have established every industry, private and public, and have experts in everything. So when developing business, you can always say that you have experts in what the potential client is doing. But they charge top rate and the clients know this and don't want to pay it at the development level. Also there is not a support staff to help make presentations, research, etc. and it's a 7-day job to do it yourself when you're not at work beating the bushes and developing. The people above you are doing the same thing and cherrypick the work for rate and hours and don't send it down.
Reputation and learning
Let’s face it, despite all it’s strange problems and odd habits when it comes to their employees and even when it comes to their makeup testers (I’m still thinking about the ick factor there a little), we will never really stop shopping there. Given, there are a few of the inconveniences that don’t overshadow the incredible place the department store really is. More often than not, we walk out of there with a smile on our face and have had better experiences more so than bad ones, and while those bad ones shouldn’t be overlooked in any sort of capacity, they won’t make us stop loving our favorite department store.
Internal firm resources for learning and development are second to none. Experts are a phone call away. It's a ton of work, but intellectually stimulating.
You'll work your tail off
Wknd work - Expected to work over the weekends. Top Management in consulting (customer) is from outsourcing industry hence expectations are to work every weekend.Bullying and Politics - The partner is a bully. So is his team of directors and cronies who are into favoritismLack of respect - No respect for managers and below. Rude behaviour with expletives given as a formal feedback.Quitting is normal - People quitting every 3rd week.
- Good Infrastructure - Great IT service
Wknd work, Bullying and Politics, Lack of respect (pwc customer consulting)
My review is great place to learn and work and excellent environment ,lots of resources to learn and good collaboration among many teams which makes a person as a good team player
It's one among the big 5 consulting
You will be among many performers so it takes time to reach the pinnacle
The people and personal development / growth made working at this company great. Working with people who are all driven to succeed and who you can connect with in and outside of work. Also the company put you in an environment to grow and succeed with trainings and mentor ship programs. The bad was the politics of the company and management at times played favorites depending on the person. Another bad was during certain times of year non existent work/life balance.
