    CEO Approval

    Pros

    You learn a mind-boggling amount on the job and the short, intense projects will ensure that you're never bored. Great if you're ambitious and curious about different sectors.

    Cons

    Work hours can get pretty long. Not as bad as IB or PE but you will definitely have some 70 hour work weeks.

    Great Work, Great People, Pending Uncertainty

    Oct 9, 2015 - Summer Associate in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of things to love working here. The people are incredibly smart and you will learn a ton if you let yourself be immersed in the intellectual environment.

    Cons

    Work hours can be long. If you're willing to put in the time and the work, though, it can be a very rewarding experience, and I found that the weeks I was working 70 hours were completely worth it. Currently pending integration into PwC, and it is uncertain how that will affect the culture

    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    Great people, great firm, but too much politics and no team wide talent management strategy

    Apr 28, 2021 - Manager in London, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good alternative to MBBs and Tier2 (OW, RB, ATK): - Smart and committed colleagues - Great managers and directors - Great industry specific knowledge - Interesting projects - London based job so limited travel

    Cons

    Reward talent and hard work, in a structure way and winning good work: - Low pay compared to competitors, at par for juniors but very low for managers and above - Unclear career progression above manager, a lot of politics involved for promotions - Sales focused culture at the top, so partners tend to accept any project size and any fee even if it doesn’t add creds or skills to the team. This leads to understaffing and often team burnout - Long working hours (although this is a norm in the industry, sometimes it is hard to switch off before midnight for a few weeks/months) in addition to weekend work and holiday cancellations - Siloed organisation: hard to cooperate with other parts of PwC
