I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

client facing job, great networking, standardized promotion cycles, managerial responsibilities early in career

Cons

You have to work tons of overtime; 'Busy Season' is a myth, it is busy year-round; smaller clients can be completely incompetent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep hiring to smooth out staffing crunches around busy season.

    I worked at PwC as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team working environment. Great pay and hours for internship. You will learn a great deal about working with people. It is important not to trust anyone. Do your job as best as possible. Take notes while being coach and ask good questions on things that are not clear. Also, learn excel as much as you can on youtube or on your own time. That is the most important skill to have. Great experience to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Office politics. People are very fake, they will not give you straight forward answers when asked certain questions. Work-life balance is horrible. It is hard to prioritize work load at times. While doing internship, you get a lot of task that don't add any educational value.

    Some employees are not friendly and it makes it hard to ask questions on the job. Employees complaint a lot about their workload.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
  2. At times rewarding but overall negative

    I worked at PwC

    Pros

    Lots of good methodological tools, best practices.

    Interesting projects, some knowledgeable people.

    New people come in ready to work hard and prove themselves

    Relatively good pay.

    Cons

    Need to kiss up and be in with the right people or your career will go nowhere. Even if your clients love you, it's what is inside pwc that counts for career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Partners are selective as mentors. Don't forget why you brought the people you did.
