Current Employee - Associate in McLean, VA

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Relationships that you build
Diversity of work that you can do

Cons

Overtime requirement
Hard to get recognized because the company is so large.
Have to move heaven and earth to get a 1 rating.
Do not go into the Washington Federal Practice. There is little movement with various projects.
Very difficult to find engagements to go to if you do not know the right people.
Live close to the office that you are tied to. If you live far you will not be successful at this firm. They expect you to be able to come to the office for every little event or training. Living 75 miles away from your home office is a death sentence and no one will care but you.
No work/life balance
Very arrogant staff (many have the we are better than you attitude)
Make sure you come in a the right level. I came in at the highest Associate level possible and did not get a raise for 2 years until I was promoted.

Advice to Management

Understand the demographics of your staff.
Stop hiring people just to hire them. Make sure you have engagements to place people. Do not hire someone on wishful thinking
