    Former Employee - Tax Associate in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great training sessions for your job profile, good learning experience in Indirect taxation - we had opportunities to engage with Fortune 500 clients. Also had to interact frequently with Head of Taxation, and these interactions provided hands-on learning in Taxation.

    Cons

    Middle tier managers would sometimes encourage un-necessary long working hours. This resulted in a bad work-life balance, at times. Also, a major re-structuring occurred in early 2010, and most of our teams switched jobs to the competitor, thereby leaving gaps in responsibilities.

    Pros

    It is one of the Big 4 and it is good to have a global consulting firm on your CV.

    The culture of the Mumbai Tax office, including partners, is unprofessional.

    Pros

    Learning opportunities, Great team spirit and work culture, No unnecessary hierarchies, bosses treat you like friends, Good for networking - big clients and big assignments

    Cons

    Poor work life balance is the major disadvantage in working for PWC or any other big 4 firms with working late nights almost every other day and weekends. There is high attrition due to the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Issue of work life balance needs to be addressed

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with different clients; some really intelligent people
    Possible international exposure
    Good brand name in the market

    Cons

    Heavily perception dependent company; your people manager can screw you over if something goes wrong between you and him; good feedback from clients does not count.

    India Technology consulting (where I worked) had a huge bias for Bengali people.. many managers in Delhi, Mumbai, bangalore are Bengalis sent from Kolkata for promotion; instead of hiring locally available talent. These people do not know the local market and usually have high egos (expect non-bengali juniors to call them DA and DI e.g. Pradip da, Dipankar Da, Sanjukta Di etc)

    Secondment opportunities are frequently distributed in Kolkata as against any location (Kolkata being based in Eastern India has minimal industrial and commercial activity as compared to say Delhi or Mumbai or Bangalore - but maximum recruitment still happens there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the person dependency and implement robust processes which cannot be compromised. Also, Partners (some) should stop behaving like gods and connect more with their teams.

    Pros

    Good people and a friendly atmosphere. Very good brand to work with globally

    Cons

    The top management is mediocre and leadership team has to take note of the same. Not a collaborative environment and very soloed approach to the client. The practice lines cannibalize each other in a bid to build their own kingdom

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the India advisory leadership
