I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Amazing pay. Absolutely zero complaints in the salary area. Clear career progressions (in consulting; can't speak to the other lines of business (e.g., Tax, Audit, etc.) ) Work with wonderful people, especially due to the acquisition of many smaller consulting firms (Diamond Consultants, PRTM, etc.) which bring that "small company" feel to a large organization.

Cons

Internal services such as benefits hotlines, tech help and time & expense reporting are cumbersome and time consuming. As a consultant, there are always cons from being on the road and dealing with difficult clients, but PwC provides a great number of resources to help deal with this

Advice to Management

Improve internal sites and systems (e.g., benefits hot lines, requesting technical help, time & expense reporting) to help workers to be more productive. Also, Lotus Notes is a terrible email platform, and while it may be necessary for databases, the company needs to move to Outlook as Notes simply runs havoc on your computer; when working in high pressure, short deadline, consulting environments, this is a very sub-optimal tool. Finally, updating infrastructure (e.g., the Lenovo ThinkPads we use) and the software for all employees, as well as incorporating more features to PwC mobile (hoteling, etc.) would be beneficial. While PwC has recently come out with it's own app store, it is unclear how to begin using it for many employees. PwC should make a concentrated effort to communicate to employees how to get the best out of what is offered to them.

    Pros

    You learn a lot and get to work with people your age! People are very social and friendly.

    Cons

    You will work a LOT of hours, wayy more than expected. Busy season is like hell unless you have a great team to work with. Although they really push for work-life balance, its hard to achieve. Salary is not that great but you come out with a ton of valuable knowledge in the end.


  2. "Great place to work and get experience"
