Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Calcutta (India)

I have been working at PwC full-time for more than a year

Pros

only the brand, nothing much else

Cons

1) dada didi culture prevails in Kolkata , too much office politics
2) Most partners are bengali so PwC India is like a small scale Kolkata company
3) Dont expect global work culture PwC India is an india firm and has nothing of global standards
4) Clients are limited and international assignments are only from PwC network firms
5) Very few projects and you will struggle to get billed for a client.
6) You are left to deal with everything on your own, they dont even know what is team work.
7) Nobody wants to help anybody, you are expected to do everything yourself without any motivation from managers.
8) As a new joiner you dont feel welcome
9) Job responsibility not clear managers are useless and non-technical.
10) They dont realise the potential of employees
11) Only emphasis is profit and they dont care about employee well being
12) You are held responsible for ensuring your billing and profitability they donot try to assign you any project
13) Whole company is full of unethical practices in project management, present incapable people as experts to the client.
14) No emphasis on any technology, people work like govt office just want to pass time and relax with no foresight.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

PwC India is rotten to the core, change the whole culture but If people come from bad work culture nothing more can be done.

    I worked at PwC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to work across multiple industries
    I suppose it's good to have on the CV

    Cons

    Abismal leadership,
    Partners hoarding profits
    Zero staff management
    HC worst I have ever come across
    Bullying by senior management
    New Australian CEO has only ever worked at the firm thus how can he comment on industry although he's good at avoiding and diverting difficult questions
    Incompetent senior management with serious lack of basic technical skills 'how do these people get into these positions'
    Lots of untruths during the recruiting process
    Complete lack of understanding of experienced hires
    No trust between staff
    What culture and values, they are non existent!
