    I worked at PwC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is large in size, which means you are able to meet and work with some of the big names in the industry

    Cons

    To be honest, the company runs a terrible management system. I worked as an intern this past summer. It has been three months after I left the company, still, I have not received any internship pays as the contract stated and the taxi reimbursement for going to the client's companies. The recruiting process was also terribly awful. The HR called me this one day and asked if I could do interview right when she calls me - which I was apparently not prepared and I do not think this is considered as "professional" for such a big name if you did not inform the candidate at least 24 hours prior to the interview.

    Advice to Management

    Before I joined, I always looked up to PwC based on its renowned reputation in the industry. However, things turned out to be very disappointing and frustrating after what I experienced with your company. I just want to let you know that, even for the entry-level staffs, you will need to treat them with respect, at least in the way of making the internship pay on time. I have checked multiple times with the HR and Finance department in the past three months and I am so fed up with asking my previous senior-in-charge and the manager to contact other colleagues in asking for my internship pay. I eventually ended up choosing another BIg Four company after I graduate because they have a much better culture. At least their HR respects the employee; all the staff members speak good English; they pay their interns on time.

    I worked at PwC as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    good brand name, nice working environment (yes I'm talking about the office environment here), people are nice and chill

    Cons

    - lots of complaints from people under management level; too much puking among juniors
    - no learning from the manager; they don't really know what they are doing
    - 5 employees left the firm during my half year internship in the experience center office, given that there were only 15 people (including intern) in the office
    - two partners left the firm during my half year internship, and one new partner joined; the experience center was losing money
    - no learning, no growing opportunity. managers don't even care what you think as juniors. they expect you follow their ways and never tell you why.
