    Pros

    Big Brand name! May provide a good exposure to people coming from small cities in India.

    Cons

    Lacks the qualities of a huge Multi national company, to much focus on cost cutting through not paying better salaries or perks than its competitors in India whereas Partners/ED tend to waste more money on unplanned strategies or program. High attrition rate is the indication of this factor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Effective People management is important for your growth in India. Focus on it.

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

    Pros

    Haven't got offer to list out pros but good interview panel and enjoyed the interview.

    Cons

    Very Slow interview process and no updates from hr team .
    Needs a lot follow up , they just ignore your emails .
    In terms of pay, me in specific have asked for a reasonable hike based on the reviews i had seen earlier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good if you can provide updates or reply to the job seekers on time. Ignoring would feel pity inspite of big brand name it maintains in market.
