    Former Employee - Consultant in Calcutta
    Former Employee - Consultant in Calcutta

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Colleagues are helpful and they possess good technical knowledge. Work is ok in software development. Scope of learning is average. Small teams. So you have more ownership. You get to know things end to end. Annual parties.

    Cons

    Lack of good quality clients. Due to some policy, the company in India can not approach US UK clients. Thus opportunity of travelling these places is less. Most of the clients are domestic clients. You may have to travel a lot inside the country, depending on your client's base location. Salary increment is less. Appraisal process is not great. Scope of learning new technology is less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technology consulting has a lot more potential.

    Master Slave Work Culture

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bangalore
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bangalore

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    PwC SDC (Slave Delivery Center) is a typical body shopping company. They are only concerned with per hour billing, Highly unethical and selfish Management. Here they treat employees as Donkeys and believe that anyone can do anything (Developer is made to do DTP , Testing work).

    Cons

    At PwC SDC(Slave Delivery Center) there is no training's provided. Employees are the product whom they sell to make revenue. The more an Employee (Donkey) can be billed the happier the management. They bill one resource for 16 hrs/day on different projects and pay employees peanuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Master Slave work culture and treat Employees not like Donkey. After all these so called Employees (donkey) earn and provide you bread and butter. Give Professional respect to Employees.

    family life takes a tol

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you are not compensated well enough according to your competitors. So perks should be well laid and told in advance.
