Training is given at the start so even with no experience, you can feel more assured before going to client's office. Plenty of friendly people. Need to work hard as you are expected to have exhausted all resources before going to the senior/manager for help.
Pros
Claimable expenses for transport
Cons
Hectic hours depending on department

PwC is a wonderful place to start your career, young and energized. The more busy seasons you work, the more stressed and burnt out you become. The unfortunate part is that some people have fantastic experiences and work-life balance while others are unlucky and are stuck in a place where it feels like busy season all year round. In the end, if you can put in the work and time early on, do it. Get the experience and leave.
Pros
Free phone, "unlimited" sick days, flexible schedule
Cons
Work-life balance does not exist, you're just another number

Hiring in 2020 has been a nightmare for many companies. Going into a pending summer intern experience with PWC, they decided to cancel the in-person experience in exchange for an entirely virtual learning and digital upskilling experience for all interns while simultaneously offering job offers to all interns. This says a lot about the firm, investing in the candidates they had already vetted and brought in during a time of so much uncertainty.

This was my first job out of MBA. It was challenging and there was some bad managers. Once you find your crew inside the firm its a lot of fun. I still in touch with the folks I worked with. Great place to jump start your career.

Working at PwC is a big step for your career. It develops you as a person and as an employee. People there are very friendly, but competitive. You have to work very hard to prove yourself. very high season from January until April. I recommend working there but pick the department you want to join carefully.
Pros
excellent health care, very friendly people with very nice place and environment
Cons
very stressful most time of the year

Internal firm resources for learning and development are second to none. Experts are a phone call away. It's a ton of work, but intellectually stimulating.
Pros
Professional development
Cons
You'll work your tail off

Learned a lot, helpful managers. Work life balance can be tough with travel, but mostly it depends on your client and the team. The company as a whole is great.

Speaking for PwC advisory only. Great culture at the company, and a lot of opportunities to network with others from different groups and cultivate mentorships. As a POC, I felt supported and empowered.

PwC hire a lot of graduates for one reason - they can pay them a low salary in comparison to similar firms in the industry.In PwC it really depends what pillar / team you end up in. I think that the general ethos of the company is really good, and the induction week makes you feel excited about joining. However - speaking from my experience - very little of that sales puff put to new joins is actually implemented. You are given a recent iphone and a laptop for work, which is great.However, management in MY experience were horrible people. Very subtle bullying went on, and a lot of favoritism. Directors will occasionally join calls to tell you how great you all but it's nothing more than corporate mantra to justify how much pressure you are put under with VERY little training (contrary to promises made in your induction).
Pros
Great for your CV, will definitely help you get better jobs in the future. Nice office, staff drinks every month
Cons
Little to no training with an expectation you complete all taks perfectly, brutal management, much better pay in similar jobs elsewhere

Overall good place to start a career as you enter the workforce. You get a lot of exposure in a very short amount of time. You also get to work with a lot of very intelligent individuals.

Друзья, устраиваясь на работу в эту компанию, знайте - это организация уровня обычного российского ООО под прикрытием международных корпоративных стандартов. Огромная часть сотрудников - преимущественно грейда менеджеров и выше - неадекватные управленцы, не считающие коллег грейдом ниже за людей; хамящие, "сдающие исподтишка" за незначительную ошибку, пытающиеся выслужиться перед дир-ами и партнерами. Те разговоры о так называемом благополучии сотрудников, которые идут из каждого медийного "утюга" компании, с лихвой рассыпаются четырехдневной рабочей неделей, взятием отпусков за свой счет и принудительным уходом в оплачиваемый. Заработные платы не попадают даже в нижнюю границу средней по отрасли. Если вы хотите получить опыт работы в крупной организации - дерзайте, но помните - главное вовремя уйти.
Pros
Возможность прикоснуться к современному корпоративному миру, удобное расположение офиса
Cons
Неадекватно низкая оплата труда, неадекватность сотрудников высоких грейдов, двойные стандарты у руководства компании

The overall culture at PwC is awesome. Great flexibility and the integrity and overall brand at the firm made my job easier as a Recruiter. The firm met my standards for ethics.

I joined PwC after graduating from college and worked there for 5 years. I feel I was really lucky to work in a professional firm with tons of talent people and clear prompting mechnism.

Not disappointed with the overall job, like every job there are hiccups here and there. However, it's not a place to build a career because it takes forever to reach the top. It's a stepping stone job to another job with greater pay.
Pros
Coworker, Flexible schedule, Vacation
Cons
Health Insurance, Tons of training on top of audit work

Work life balance is tough but not impossible. It is a fast paced and stressful environment. A lot of hours will be required to be put in during busy season.

A lot of emphasis is given in values of firm and how can we deliver best quality to the clients. Workforce is full with young employees and has lot of energy. Its a fun place where people are very collaborative and supportive of each other's growth. Lot of learning and development opportunities are available for employees to upskill themselves.

Work/life balance can be a challenge, but they generally reward hard work and good performance with bonuses and raises which are respectable for the industry. Always opportunity to take more challenging work.

no layoffs during covid19; great people; relaxed when not busy season; very busy busy season. hardest part is pay being low for an associate during busy times.

Great place to start a career, but hard to justify staying after a couple years due to low compensation and opportunities elsewhere. Most will work here for a couple years for the breadth of experience provided and make senior or manager promotion, then leave for greener pastures.
