    Pros

    PwC offers excellent perks to its employees and exciting, varied opportunities to work with some of the best clients in the world.

    Cons

    PwC is a massive firm and as a consequence is not as agile as it needs to be in the market in order to retain talent and to innovate its client offerings. The advisory business is limited by its connections to the audit practice and the fact that the audit practice is risk-averse.

    Advice to Management

    PwC's leaders need to innovate more boldly and find ways to synchronize their huge global network into a stronger operating model.

    Pros

    Good people, good incentives, company tries to be flexible and family leave options are better than most.

    Cons

    Long hours, grueling work days

    Advice to Management

    I guess if you've been laid off due to your or the firm's performance, you're one the the disgruntled - but transparency to squash the gossip is important.

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

    Pros

    Great exposure to clients. Nice perks

    Cons

    Not many blacks or Hispanics in the company. Some directors/managers will show their prejudice so you have to work twice as hard as anyone else

    Advice to Management

    Allow upward reviews. I encountered multiple racist hire ups but didn’t trust HR to have my back due to some stories going around the office.

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

    Pros

    can sometimes work remotely
    great opportunity to get exposure to different areas

    Cons

    -politics
    -sometimes have to watch your back for highly competitive people stabbing you in the back.

    Advice to Management

    -relationship partners are the one who make the promotion decisions, and usually there are a few people assigned to the same partner. So, it really comes to how you network and work around politics.

    Pros

    Great learning experience, work with smart and motivated people, predictable career progression, opportunity to work on a variety of areas, good perks.

    Cons

    Long hours outside of and during busy season, stress is high for most of the year, potential for long commutes.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who deserve to be promoted, replace people who quit so the team does not need to bare the entire workload.


  9. "Great place to work, especially if you are early career."

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    I experience a strong degree of decision latitude, and my clients tell me that they take action on the basis of my findings. This makes me feel like my individual work is impactful, and I am always motivated to give my PwC my best work.

    Cons

    Hours are long, and they are not necessarily regular. This makes it somewhat difficult to make plans during the week. Then again, PwC is a Big 4 firm — what else would one expect? ;)

    Advice to Management

    I am consistently in a top performance tier, and my base compensation is towards the top of my pay band. I love PwC and am so appreciative of how the firm recognizes my work (relative to my internal peers). That said, I have an advanced specialty degree and often work 60+ hour weeks. I receive a lot of messages from headhunters and wonder if I can’t make more money and/or achieve better work life balance elsewhere. To be clear, I am not actively looking for another job.

    People either extremely unmotivated or opposite.
