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.
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.
Pay sucks but the people are great. If you are willing to put in the work and find your way on to a great team you will truly benefit. However this can be hard when you start and it can feel that your success is the result of arbitrary staffing decisions.
Great group of people to work with; business model more gears towards campus hiring and senior hires from industry.
Culture is great, however coming in as an experienced hire I did not feel like there was a great emphasis on your skills versus campus hires. Technical skills are not very broad within the firm in my area of work and I did not feel as though there was much attention paid to my skillset and I did not feel as though I was being utilized to my full capacity by those who place you on projects. It is difficult to grow technical skills outside of offerings the firm provides through partnerships they have for pitching software to clients. Pay is virtually non negotiable and was placed at a level a campus hire with no experience reaches in 1 year while I had roughly 3.5/4 years of experience when I joined; no bonus was offered at my level unless you were a campus hire.
A typical day is mostly spent on solving clients' critical issues and working with the team. An inclusive culture is very important where people are rewarded based on the merit. The hardest part of the job is traveling however that's the nature of the beast. Enjoyable part of the job is also traveling and getting to meet people from all over the world.
Come here prepared to work hard, very hard for long hours - typical Big 4 environment. They'll work you very hard as an associate for several years with the carrot dangling to become a manager. No doubt PwC looks good on your resume so you may want to just suck it up 1-2 years before moving on.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Inconsistencies with what was said in policies proper procedures stated by board and management when discovered a finding that was found they skirted their responsibility with AICPA and ISACA boards
Work was fine but always a last minute assignment. They encouraged productivity but didn't sell enough work.
There was at least 80% travel but one never knew if they would have a job for long. They had large lay-offs every few months. Work culture was stressful as you were always trying to increase your productivity. And, if the partner did not sell the work, your productivity was zero.
PwC is an excellent company to work for. The day to day work environment was great. There were many opportunities to learn. Courses related to your line of work or even something new you wanted to learn was offered. Management varied, changed too often. The hardest part of the job was the constant change and structure of each department. It is constantly changing and then eventually going back to what it was at the start. The most enjoyable part was the people we worked with.
