Pros:- Exposure to leadership within impactful industries such as C Suite- Opportunity to learn quickly and grow fast in careerCons:- Not the best work/life balance- Extensive travel, not much input on which projects staffed on
Salary was good, but management was untrustworthy and arrogant. Don’t expect a long term relationship.
PwC offered incentive pay so compensation was good. Personnel from Manager to Senior were solid people. Unfortunately, higher management were arrogant, rude and untrustworthy. PwC will misrepresent a project’s length and your job security. PwC poorly treats contractors.
Experience is good for your resume. Some good people.
Failure of communications from upper management that could be deemed misrepresentations.
great work culture but longer hours than most. you would need to have strong discipline to find out. Flip side is PwC is a big, multinational. You'll get better gigs there, but won't make as much, and have more competition as you up-rung the ladder towards promotional opportunities.
Good place to start a career; lots of opportunity for development, variety of work, etc. Culture largely depends on your specific line of service, office, and team. Pay starts relatively low for associates but ramps quickly once promoted in 2-3 years.
The environment is great for the right person. If you want to be in professional advisory services, it is a tough world but PwC can do a lot better to reconcile the firm's messaging with the reality. There used to be better work life balance but that now only applies if you're in a good group. If not, you will work your tail off with little relief and the firm's messaging almost seems to make it worse. The idea was that the compensation was not as high as other firms because of the WLB incentives but those have close to vanished and now it is a mill of working under more pressure without the increased compensation. I'd say great place to start but if you don't fit in don't force it, go find something else. It is not a firm for everyone especially diverse individuals. The messaging works for those who are in the majority but falls on deaf ears for those who want to believe it truly has a diverse and inclusive approach. It does not and cannot figure out how to do so. So, if you are super corporate and want to work in a large organization that has had much of its personal touch sapped out of it then this is a great environment to gain fantastic experience and to network but do not drink the kool aid.
good for resume, excellent for learning
No work life balance, compensation not competitive, High deductible medical benefits

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
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.
Free phone, "unlimited" sick days, flexible schedule
Work-life balance does not exist, you're just another number
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.
Very little regard for work-life balance. Grueling travel schedule. Highly driven and intelligent people. Fierce competition embedded in a feudal framework.
