Current Employee - Director in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Director in Chicago, IL

I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Usually trys to do the right thing. Culture of partnership allows more of a beg forgiveness than ask permission culture, which keeps partnership nimble. Focus on education, opportunity and advancement. I believe compensation relative to Industry is good, but I need to spend more time in Glassdoor to confirm

Cons

Frequently seems like those that get promoted have more of a short term financial bottom line attitude than the general culture of long term growth. Sometimes achieves great results by outworking rather than out thinking. Maybe this is endemic to consulting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue attitude of acquisition and growth during economic downturns.

No opinion of CEO

    Current Employee - Tax Manager in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Career Advancement
    Access to Partners, other business leaders
    Respected in the marketplace
    At management level, the ability to teach, develop and motivate staff

    Cons

    Tax Compliance, as it comes as no surprise to many, is not very exciting or fulfilling
    At times of the year, or depending on client needs, the hours are alot, 60+ during busy season, and the occasional 100hr week has happened as well.
    There are some coworkers who are not great at their jobs, and upper management does little to nothing to weed out under performing staff, even if they are willing to admit they are under performing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more active at weeding out poor performers, a bad associate may not affect that much, but a poor performing manager, make multiple peoples carry more weight.
