The campus speeches and printed materials about PwC do not mirror the actual culture...watch your back!

Pros

It looks great on your resume.

Cons

Your experience completely depends on the group you get to work with/for and your assigned client(s). Unfortunately, I worked with a hell Director that had no life herself and therefore did not allow anyone on our team to have a life. They contuniously preach (and put in print) the importance of work/life balance, but behind the scenes (and definitely not in print), they put unrealistic demands on Management and Staff which makes it nearly impossible to have a life. And unfortunately they do not currently have the amount of work available for individuals to make a choice. Additionally, moving ahead in the Firm does not depend on your quality of work but on who you know and how well the Partners like you and unfortunately the office I was in contains a large number of "good ole boy" Partners that are still resistant to women moving ahead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach. OneFirm should not just be a slogan.

    Pros

    Brand recognition; predictable career path. If you can find the right people to work with/for, it's a great place to start a career (commensurate with any other Big 4).

    Cons

    Too many people who are unable to think outside of the box and are afraid to take risks. Challenging the status quo is sometimes not accepted & can prevent promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold partners accountable for poor implementation of firm-wide initiatives. If the goal is to focus on people, hold people accountable.

    No opinion of CEO
