A post business undergraduate perspective of PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Advisory Associate (Current Employee)

ProsThe PwC work culture is fast paced and a great starting point for business undergraduates. The Firm invests in each of its employees providing them with unlimited access to the tools they need in order to offer value-added services to our clients. It is a privilege working with the people on my team as they respect and demonstrate their care of my development. For example, prior to my start date during my last year of business undergraduate university, the Company sent a care package as a gesture of good luck on my exams. Because of the nature of the Firm, it is easy to land new opportunities to progress in your career. Additionally, the benefit packages and perks, at least at my office offer great coverage and support for yourself and your immediate family.

ConsPwC is a professional services, client based focused industry. Providing quality services to our clients is one of the top priorities of a project. What that translates to is when push comes to shove, the number of hours you and your team spend completing a project can equate to 12-16 hour work days. Since the firm is salary-based, there is no overtime pay. Sometimes recognition for the amount of hours you put into the project does not feel like fair compensation. Another downside to working in a client based industry is tracking the number of hours you spend working on each client. Sometimes you are not just staffed on one client and can end up working on as much as 20 clients in a day. Tracking the time you spend in compliance with daily time submission can get tedious.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Management is a broad term as there is no 1 person you report to in this Firm. There is the official one you are assigned to, but of the multiple manager I have worked with, I give my gratitude for being open minded and professional about soliciting and receiving constructive feedback. I can speak for the people that I have worked with in saying my upper management team respects me as an individual and listens to my ideas and concerns should I ever need to discuss with them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
