The good brand you see does not reflect the reality

Pros

PwC provides good training programs which is being offered by similar big4 firms as well. But branding is what differs them from the others. They also differ greatly in the overall compensation package they offer. Performance bonuses you can get can be up to 3x or 5x your basic salary. They also have fun activities such as sportsfest and teambuilding like private companies.

Cons

Work is stressful as expected and some demanding bosses make it even more stressful. Once you make a mistake, that will become your 'brand'. People can be unethical at times when spreading negative comments about someone. Your ability to be close to the powerful gods can make a difference when it comes to performance assessment, promotion and bonuses. Gossips and backstabbing against coaches and colleagues are usual just like in any company. It depends on how well you can ignore. If your handsome or pretty, you can use it to your advantage.

    Pros

    The brand... that's about it

    Cons

    Leftover, junk technical work from US
    Historic technology is used and people are not at all technically competent
    Bad work life balance
    People dress professionally, but are anything but that
    Shout ethics, but are very unethical in terms of hiring, handling employees
    HR and management is high on politics
    Only join if you want to be a business consultant, are far away from technology and are okay sucking up to seniors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Such senior people ought to be mature, competent and professional.
