    Pros

    Technology is not something PwC is famous for globally. But in India, they have been in the business for more than a decade, notably before the IBM split in 2002. Post the end of the 5 year non compete agreement in 2007, the company has been trying to re establish its technology consulting practice. India is a crucial part of this strategy since a large part of the Internal Back office technology work for PwC US happens out of the India firm office. However, recent events including the Satyam episode has queered the pitch slightly and the Indian practice may not grow as much as originally planned/estimated. Overall fingers crossed.

    Cons

    Lack of coherent vision in the Technology consulting space, too many variables keep changing. Lot of domestic projects with low margins means people need to be squeezed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on career path for middle level performers as well

    Pros

    Supports social & sport events, charities, worklife balance (limited) and has decent benefits (health/dental, fitness, parking (Manager & Above). Recognizes staff who volunteers in the community. Supports a green environment.

    Cons

    Too much money spent on social events and internal moves (almost yearly) when the money could be used towards keeping people's jobs. Too many turnovers. Takes 10 years to earn an extra year vacation. Other companies are normally 5-7 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although leadership is trying to keep morale, they can limit the amount of social events to secure more positions within the firm. Also, better plan seating plans to reduce the amount of internal moves to 3-5 years instead of yearly. Could provide better compensation for long-term employees (10+ years), for example increase fitness benefit amount, subsidized parking/transit pass.
