I have been working at PwC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon. Strong emphasis on relationship building and networking. Diverse culture. Revived focus on employee retention, onboarding, training, and supporting new employees to integrate and be successful. Solid base comp.

Cons

Long hours despite what was advertised about work and personal life balance. Culture can foster very direct, sometimes coarse interactions. Culture is competitive, extremely political, high judgmental, and word spreads among the grapevine quickly. Second chances...? Theme is "watch your back" at all times.

Advice to Management

Retaining top talent can be improved with continuing to develop future leaders who can be personally vested in coaching mentoring and developing talent in a way that promotes bringing out the best qualities, performance and to build high performance teams. Train mid-level management to be genuine, supportive, and improving coaching and mentoring capabilities.

    I worked at PwC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Several strong partners who are consultative and well respected by clients. Executive administrators were helpful despite being assigned to support a large number of staff.

    Cons

    Leadership was tactical rather than strategic. Firm operated in a balkanized fashion which was a disservice to clients and to staff.


  2. "Overall great experience"
