    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at PwC (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lot of young people, good atmosphere in the office When not too busy the face time culture is better than some places.

    Cons

    Work-life balance sometimes lacking, especially on more intense projects. At that point the salary starts to look worse and you may as well go and work somewhere else doing similar work for more money.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the involvement of HR in the appraisals process, makes it painful for everyone trying to perform against irrelevant 'competencies' dreamed up by someone with no understanding of the business.
