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
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.
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.
great foundation for future career growth
no work life balance
Great place to work for young people without family commitments. Fast paced work environment. Versatile service offerings, international opportunities.
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.
Excellent pay and benefits
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.
a lot of awesome people in the organization to learn from advanced technology built amount big four great research conducted within organization good brand name for resume no work life balance no respect amount people
reducing health care benefit
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.
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.
Good benefits and perks. Very flexible.
Poor management. No job security.
