A great company but beware of the several (not in general) mean managers and directors

Senior Associate - Advisory (Former Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

I worked at PwC full-time for more than a year

Prosgreat consulting practice with tools and a lot of space to learn and grow. the company is generous to the employee in terms of sick leave or emergent time-off.

Conshard to get promoted. unlike other consulting firms, which follow the 2 year promotion rule, it's VERY hard to get promoted in pwc comparing to other consulting firms
there are some managers and directors who are VERY hard to please and treat people with no respect

Advice to Senior Managementreally need to go through some practices who have high turnover and see what the management is doing to drive the talents away

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good for the Career

Audit Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLets be honest having PwC on your resume is like gold! After that you can go pretty much anywhere in the accounting field.

ConsThey work you so hard and the pay is not worth the hours you put in. You do this job for th possibilities not for the pay...

Advice to Senior ManagementI am noticing a down turn in talent coming through the new classes and for those who are talented a complete abuse of them and their time. People who are abused are unhappy, people who are unhappy leave...

Good Start, but Watch Your Back

Associate (Former Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

I worked at PwC full-time

ProsGreat resume builder and experience. If you want to stay in business, especially accounting, you want to start at a Big 4. It will open a lot of doors.

ConsIt really depends on your team and superiors. If you have a good team, you will mostly enjoy your experience. If not, you will want to leave, especially during busy seasons.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter work/life balance, if possible.

Senior Associate - Assurance

Senior Associate - Assurance (Former Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

I worked at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsBroad exposure to various opportunities, people and clients. Especially useful coming straight out of school.

ConsEngagements are consistently understaffed; people are overworked; lots of mind games. Difficult to get onto new projects. High turn over.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a higher value placed on treating people adequately. Throwing around corporate jargon like "work-life balance" does not actually mean staff get to experience this. The idea of working 90 hrs/wk can no longer qualify as a badge of honor - it needs to be eradicated if you want people to stick around in the long run.
