    WAS a Great Place to Work before Partners and Leadership became greedy. When Ken Cooke left it all went downhill.

    Pros

    Technology, benefits, pay, and great people to work with (at least before so many were fired due to outsourcing/offshoring of IT in 2009 and 2010). Firm is sneaky by not communicating group offshoring to other groups - you just find out one day that "they" have all left.

    Cons

    Very poor Senior Leadership in many instances. There are still some very talented people there in Senior Leadership, but I'll bet some of them will leave as soon as they can. Use to be a great culture but it has digressed significantly.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like you use to. Now that you have laidoff so many IT people and ruined the enthusiasm that use to exist, you are pumping money back into "feel good" activities. It may be too late - your fired the very fabic of what made PwC WORK - The people who held it together by knowing "who" did what and that persons skills could be counted on. Best of luck PwC as you will need it to heal your serious IT issues that you have bought at bargain basement cost through outsourcing to TATA (TCS).

    Pros

    Given the large size of the company, there are endless opportunities, for education, or transfers to other lines of service. Overall, a professional work environment where leaders seem to mean well.

    Cons

    It's easy to be lost in the shuffle - networking and performance matter. Work life balance sometimes just feel like an HR initiative, but there really are incredible perks (such as flexible work arrangements or part-time schedules) that you can make work for you.

    Advice to Management

    The recession hit the company hard. Watch out for disgruntled employees who feel like they have been squeezed (both in terms of compensation and hours worked). This varies by office and practice, but seems like the firm is moving in the right direction these days.
