    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you keep you entry level happy in terms of work life balance and reduce the work pressure,it will bring positive changes in the organizations and the quality of work will automatically improve.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Mumbai
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Mumbai

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with different clients; some really intelligent people
    Possible international exposure
    Good brand name in the market

    Cons

    Heavily perception dependent company; your people manager can screw you over if something goes wrong between you and him; good feedback from clients does not count.

    India Technology consulting (where I worked) had a huge bias for Bengali people.. many managers in Delhi, Mumbai, bangalore are Bengalis sent from Kolkata for promotion; instead of hiring locally available talent. These people do not know the local market and usually have high egos (expect non-bengali juniors to call them DA and DI e.g. Pradip da, Dipankar Da, Sanjukta Di etc)

    Secondment opportunities are frequently distributed in Kolkata as against any location (Kolkata being based in Eastern India has minimal industrial and commercial activity as compared to say Delhi or Mumbai or Bangalore - but maximum recruitment still happens there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the person dependency and implement robust processes which cannot be compromised. Also, Partners (some) should stop behaving like gods and connect more with their teams.

    Overall a good company to work in

    Former Employee - Manager in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Former Employee - Manager in Gurgaon, Haryana

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quality work. Good support system for employees. Work life balance (this depends on the partner and manager). A diverse background of colleagues enriches you as a person

    Cons

    Compensation is a major issue if you get stuck at a low level. Highly rigid in terms of the correction system.. A lot of people have left the organisation due to this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify key talent and promote them for taking the business forward

    The top management is mediocre and leadership team has to take note of the same. Not a collaborative environment and very soloed approach to the client. The practice lines cannibalize each other in a bid to build their own kingdom
