Pros:- Exposure to leadership within impactful industries such as C Suite- Opportunity to learn quickly and grow fast in careerCons:- Not the best work/life balance- Extensive travel, not much input on which projects staffed on
PwC is a great company for young professionals seeking for growth and challenges. Career path is clear and salary is competitive. Working colleauges are strong and teamworks are required.
Collaborative environment with colleagues, able to work remotely, no career paths ever discussed by upper management. A lot of favoritism and not all team members treated fairly.
co-workers were great
favoritism, workload not distributed evenly to the team, micromanagement, too many meetings
Come here prepared to work hard, very hard for long hours - typical Big 4 environment. They'll work you very hard as an associate for several years with the carrot dangling to become a manager. No doubt PwC looks good on your resume so you may want to just suck it up 1-2 years before moving on.
Company provides free food and drinks for the staff who have to work in the evening in the peak seasons. Company is considerable to give basic care to the staff.
Free food and drinks
Work was fine but always a last minute assignment. They encouraged productivity but didn't sell enough work.
There was at least 80% travel but one never knew if they would have a job for long. They had large lay-offs every few months. Work culture was stressful as you were always trying to increase your productivity. And, if the partner did not sell the work, your productivity was zero.
At PwC, work moves at a very rapid pace. In the early days, you are almost always learning new things everyday. From research techniques to business analysis to report writing and slides development.
Employment with PwC gave me the opportunity to work in a multicultural environment and learn many skills leveraging the global network. Great place to work!!
Global work opportunities
The training and resources provided by PwC is pretty unbeatable for a first job. Lots of exposure to different types of businesses and projects ensures continuous growth. You will be leading meetings within the first few months of joining. Lots of autonomy in terms of HOW you get your work done (work from home, flexible hours), but almost no autonomy in terms of WHAT you get to work on. Very heavy travel, but very generous travel budget (e.g. $100/day for food). Opportunities for international travel. Not a great place to meet people if you're in a new city as you will be working on projects with people from all over the country/world. Job security is almost guaranteed, however promotion is not. They won't fire you, but instead they just won't promote you. Promotion is also hardly influenced by merits for staff, it's all metrics. Even if you are a star you will still have to wait 3 yrs for promotion.
Opportunity to travel, training, great office (if you ever make it in), work from home, good benefits
long hours sometimes, promotions only every 3 years, very little say in what projects you are assigned to
experience varies with team but the overall company culture is amazing. The company focus is on making employees successful in their careers and it reflects in their HR policies, trainings offered and in general how they treat their employees
opportunities of advancement, great people, multiple company events
The job has a steep learning curve and definitely has a lot of room for growth. However, the long audit hours and high stress environment are definitely a burden.
I just started at PwC in December and my major issue is the lack of work-life balance they have. Although managements have tried to put in place measures to mitigate this, it still is not effective. Compensation is below par when compared to other advisory firms because it is traditionally an accounting firm. However, the company has a strong brand name.
I have learned a lot of work at PwC, it has helped me to impove the quality of my work and also to understand the importance of time management at work as well as being able to work long hours without complaining.
Regular social activities to ease the eployees mind from their hard work
we work long hour
The Company is a very good company to work for and having on your CV. The downside to it was that there was no work/life balance. Had to work so many overtime and it was an issue if you wanted to take the time off. We were a family and helped each other when we could.
Working as a team supporting each other
A lot of overtime
Stimulating, fast, productive, well organised, professional and fun working environment. Management style very specific and directed by clear working standards and principles.
Integrated performance management system
Long hours & less pay.
