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

Learned a lot, helpful managers. Work life balance can be tough with travel, but mostly it depends on your client and the team. The company as a whole is great.

There will be a lot of learning, and a lot of late nights. The one thing that made me enjoy my time at PwC was that you had no choice but to progress.

Great culture, endless opportunities, diverse (in mostly metro cities) terrible work life balance, very little mobility opportunities among lines of services.

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.

PwC is often criticized for below-average compensation in the space, but compensate with flexibility where they can. Frequently able to work from home.

Busy season is pretty busy and although you are expected to work minimum 55 hours a week it is much more than that. Pretty good work life balance outside busy season but busy season more than makes up for it.

Good company to work with. Multinational with offices in many countries. SAP practice is not as extensive as other practices. Good job stability but not that good for growth.

I found that the experience with PriceWaterhouseCoopers was very dependent on the partner that you worked with. Some partners are very easy to work with and provide clear instruction while others make you question your sanity.

I was only a contract employee, so my comments are not necessarily germane to the broader audience. My time at PWC was enjoyable and my colleagues at PWC were almost uniformly excellent

Having PWC on my resume opened many doors later in my career. I really enjoyed working for the firm but there was no work life balance just focus on work. It was difficult to have a life outside the firm especially during busy season. The experience was great learned a lot in a short period of time.
Pros
great foundation for future career growth
Cons
no work life balance

A typical day for a Sr. Associate at PwC involves managing multiple work streams, usually in different phases of engagement cycles. The hardest part of the job was producing superior work products within unrealistic budgets. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different clients, learning about their business model, and then delivering finished products.
Pros
Excellent pay and benefits
Cons
Long hours and frequent fire drills

Work varies by project. There is no such thing as a typical day at PwC. Cultures and management will shift from team to team. I recommend finding a manager that you enjoy working with and continue to work on projects with that person.

The culture used to be a great place to work. With all the acquisitions and the constant hiring, the culture has shifted to people being competitive and not working with one another. It is nice to have competition once in a while but everyday at work is tiring, especially when dealing with difficult clients. They are also VERY stingy with promotions.

Great place to start your career as you learn a lot in short period of time. Build skills such as strategic thinking, program management and leadership communication. Involves >90% travel and approx 16 hours/day work. Friendly place to work for immigrants.

Good place to start your career. Would recommend PwC to friends and family. A place you should network at because a lot of smart professionals work there.

PwC is definitely not the same firm it use to be. The people in management positions, that I have dealt with, are unethical. It's become a shady business practice. Management doesn't know what's going on. Constant changes that don't make any sense and make you feel uncomfortable working there. They've become a mess. They are driving their employees out the door. They are losing good talent. Their plan for growth is not good.I lost respect for them. I would not recommend PwC to a friend.
Pros
Good benefits and perks. Very flexible.
Cons
Poor management. No job security.

this is a great company to work for if you know that the work/life balance is going to be difficult. The people that work here are the best and you can really learn a lot from them.
